    Do you have any phrases you tell each other constantly?  When my husband tell me “I love you” I have always answered “I LOVE YOU MORE” so for our 15th wedding anniversary I gave him a beautiful watch with that engraved and our wedding date.

    ladyvictoria :   I just had my husband’s watch engraved for Christmas.  When we started dating, he wanted to see me all the time, but I told him that I moved more slowly, like a turtle. And, just under 2 years since we had met, we were married… So I began telling him I was a fast turtle! 

    I had ‘One day at a time with God and your fast turtle’ engraved on the side of his watch (his has a display back.)  I also thought about using a Bible verse from the ones we had picked for our wedding and a couple other phrases that used verses from our first dance song (The Way You Smile by Newsong).  Here is the list I had developed… I hope it helps  you!

    For my honey who learned to love fast turtles! 

    If God is for us, who can be against us?

    – Romans 8:31

    We love because He first loved us. 

    -John 19

    God lives in us and His love is made complete in us. 

    -John 12

    I can see forever in your eyes. 

    Wherever you go, I’ll be there, too.
