With all the roses, gifts and cards you could spend your money on it is truly the simple things in life that make a difference to me. My husband I have been on a tight budget for the past year and had some storms throughout the year dealing with “cleaning up the past”. With God we have managed to push through those storms. I received this letter today for Valentine’s Day from my husband. I was speechless and in awe! I love my husband and so thankful God brought us together. Please read my husband’s letter below;
Love and Blessings,
No Mere Acquaintance

There comes a time in your life, albeit beyond our power and control, that God brings a person into your life that He intends for you to be more than an acquaintance with. Depending on the person and your life phase you are in – that could be an unexpected brother or sister, a friend that you reunite with after years of no contact, a new friend that feels like you have always been close with or for some, and as it was for me, He brings you, your soul mate. Cheri Lynn Bullard walked into my life in July 2011 and almost immediately I knew that this most gorgeous, most wonderful woman was meant to be my wife.
This was not a passing relationship, this was no mere acquaintance – no, this lady was my soon-to-be best friend, my soon-to-be soul mate, my soon-to-be wife. I mean she did make me, I love you pancakes after all!
It took me about three weeks to kiss her for the first time and when I did, I knew that night, that I would someday make that woman my wife. I remember telling God, “That is my future wife!” It was then that I realized what she meant to me and I sent her the song “I Just Realized” by Matt Wertz – http://youtu.be/EwQSez9ttss to tell her so.
In my life, I am blessed enough to know the love of the few close friends I have, the love of my family and the love of my Heavenly Father; which those things most of us know and understand. And I honestly can say that up until God brought this amazing, beautiful woman to me, that I never have known or experienced real, true, committed selfless romantic love! So…here we are celebrating Valentine’s Day 2013 and really for me, it is I who feels that I have gotten the most wonderful valentine each day that I get to love and be loved by this most amazing woman.
I will be celebrating her and our love everyday that I am alive. I will protect her, I will lead her, I will love her and I will always be here for her. I believe in her, I cherish her, I would give her the last drop of blood in my body if needed. It’s her hand I will hold until I breathe my last. But really I have no choice here, my heart and my life were made for her. She is no mere acquaintance, she is my God-given soul mate. She is my world.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you – my Strength through the storms I have faced, my Love who loves unconditionally, my Best Friend who is always there, my Heart which would stop beating without you, my Wife that I will spend my entire life honoring.
I love you, Cheri Lynn Boghos, now, forever and beyond.
♥ Your Hubs,
