Today made five years of marriage. I couldn't be happier.

As a poet I have never been scared to express my feelings about things. This poem was written in deication to my wife who has made me one of the happiest men on the planter. Here is my words to the Love of my life, Tiffany Braxton Belvin. 

I Would Say I Do All Over Again..

Your smile brightens my world, sending messages God is real.
You’re my Sarah, my Ruth, my Ester and my Mary.
With each look I fall in love with you all over again.
Is this real of course it is.
As real as the day I joked some day you’ll be mine. I told you.
Can you remember when I said I’d be the greatest man you’ve ever known?
Who knew in my arrogance, I was speaking a word to what you’d bring to my life.
We've seen darkness, pain and moments of despair.
There were times when ending this relationship would have been the common choice.
Our tears and moments of pain have always given way to a brighter tomorrow.

We have seen the light which followed the storms.
Together we prayed when there was nothing left for us to do.
Only to see those prayers answered.
I cherish each breath I am blessed to with you.
Can you hear Toni Braxton and Johnny Gill singing us into holy matrimony as we stood with family and friends?
The sun from our day is still felt as the song signaled your arrival.
The pastor asked “Do You Keith and Do You Tiffany” can you still feel the tears of joy as we uttered “I DO!”
Remember how we faced down “Dean” with only our love and prayer then refused to allow even a hurricane to pull us apart.
A year later,
return triumphant to the same spot with the echoes of that great wind whistling in the Jamaican breeze.
Husband and wife, the words are so common but to us so special.
They can never mean to others what they mean to you and I.
I've sworn an oath to love you, cherish you, protect you and even die for you if I have too.
Many don’t understand and some will never comprehend what we have.
You see my Love; I wouldn’t change a thing about you.
Today is our day, the day we became one.
The day the Lord set aside just for us.
Material I don’t have, wealth has yet to be given, yet I am richer than a man can because I have you.
Allow me to wish us peace and mercy in the presence of the world in the eyes of the Father.
No mere gift would be complete or give what we have its due.
You are my wife, the one the Lord has given me.
This is my gift; I stand and shout for all who will listen and those who try not too,
From the bottom of my heart, I would say I do all over again.
K. L. Belvin, Husband of Tiffany Braxton Belvin

5 Years Ago My Life Changed & I Would Do It all Over Again!

In 3 days, it will make 5 years I have been married to my lovely wife Tiffany Braxton Belvin.

We have been together 12 years, but it 2007 we decided to stop playing married and made it real. There are no words which can explain what the Lord has done for my life by granted me the honor of His blessings. He wrote for all to read

Proverbs 18:22

 He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.

Tiff and I have enjoyed each minute of being married. Do we have much, not in the way many people think. However we are rich. I'll explain, when you love God and want Him to forgive your past, you have to make changes in your life. You have to humble yourself to the idea of a greater being and trust all you do is for a greater good. The Lord understood who I was going to be before I learned to listen him. He placed Tiffany in my life so the building blocks would be in place. All we needed were instructions on how to arrange things. The instructions were given to Tiffany. To save my life, the Lord knew I needed a mate who understood me. She was someone I prayed for. I had experienced love in the past and messed up. I needed a partner who understood all the craziness which made me who I was. In walks Tiffany, her moxy, intelligence, style and of course her beauty were needed for me keep focused. But, it wasn't enough, the missing piece was God, Himself. 

 Once Tiffany gained an understanding of her faith she was able to demand more from me. She drew a line in the sand with my cheating and demanded I make a life altering decision. Tiff didn't say any thing different then what many women say after catching their man cheating and wanting him to change, the difference was, Tiff said, "Its either God and Me or the whores in the streets"  When you staring the one you love in the face and she places God and herself on one side of the cliff and says make a move. Is it really that hard a decision to make. 
This books was created to show the world how I overcame my negative past. Tiff was the first to read it, approve it and she even wrote the forward. 

When you make tough decisions, things don't automatically change because you want it to. Every race begins with a commitment to run it and then one step after another. I needed the push at that time to find the man God created me to be. 5 years later I still love Tiff just as much as I did then. Our love has held up no matter what personal attacks, financial attacks and even nature attacks (we withstood hurricanes Dean and Irene together) have come our way. We have and will faced them together. 

Our anniversary  is more than just another reminder of another year pasted. Its a reminder of a commitment made to God and each other. 

Please share our wedding with us.. We love these videos. We want folks to see we're living what we're asking other couples to consider. 

Tiffany I love You doll!.. 

God Blesss.
