To My Darling Husband,
Words cannot describe my feelings at the close of this day, our first day
together as husband and wife. My love for you is so complete and so pure; that my
happiness is beyond anything I’ve ever imagined. I’ve thought, dreamed and prayed
about this moment for such a long time, and how very much I wanted to make this
decision; the most important one in my life; the right one. I want you to know as we
knelt before the Lord today in His Temple; I have made the right choice; I’ve married
the right person and I promise to love and cherish you throughout this life and all
I’m so very proud of you, your decision as well as the life you have led, to
prepare yourself for me our children and our Heavenly Father. I’m so grateful that
in your preparation, you have come to know how important daily Scripture reading is
and how much it helps an individual in everyday trials and tribulations. I’m proud of you
for keeping a Journal and writing in it; your actions as well as your thoughts and
feelings, whether they are good or bad. Now our children can learn from some of your
own experiences and realize what a good father you really are.
I want you to know how much it means to me that you decided a long time ago
to be morally clean. I look on you now as the most virtuous man on Earth and I know
you always will be, just because you set that goal a long time ago. What tremendous
respect I have for you for making decisions amidst all the pressures we faced in our
youth. I’m so glad you waited for me, your eternal companion, to be your first and only
love. You can’t imagine what that means to me. It makes me treasure you even more.
I want you to know how much it means to me that you sacrificed and prepared
yourself in your youth, to receive your Eagle Scout award and in turn prepared you to
serve an honorable mission. It means so much to me and our Heavenly Father that you
made those important choices that will help you through life. You will be a great
example to our children.
I want you to know I watched how you treated your parents, especially your
mother, and that played an important part in deciding if you were the right one for
me. I should not expect any better treatment than what you gave your mother. I hope
our children learn to honor us as parents, as you have honored your parents.
I feel fortunate that you as my husband, have set goals; personal goals, for
yourself and strived to achieve them, I’m sure our Heavenly Father is very pleased
