"Reminiscing and reaffirming these promises to you today, Darling," she began the lengthy post.

Reminiscing and reaffirming these promises to you today, Darling! "Benjamin, today I take you to be my husband, my faithful partner, and my one true Love. Loving you now, and as you grow and develop into all that God intends. I promise to encourage you, inspire you and love you truly when we are together and when we are apart; when our lives are at peace and when they are in turmoil; when I am proud of you and when I am disappointed in you; in times of work and in times of rest. I promise to passionately pursue you, to pray for you, and to empower you to do the things that you dream. From the depth of my being, I will seek to be open and honest with you. I will forever be there to laugh with you, to lift you up, and to love you unconditionally through all of our adventures in life together. I say these things believing that God is in the midst of them all. And I give you this ring as a symbol of my unending love."
