You have shown me more than I could have ever imagined, given me more than I could have ever dreamed of, and changed me more than I could have ever have ever hoped for.
You have allowed God to use you to work in my life in amazing ways, and I thank Him eternally.
This is long overdue, as is most of what I have been feeling and saying lately to and about you.
Thank you for loving me.

Happy St. Valentine's Day! Tricia you are such a beautiful person, Nate and you make a great couple and you can totally see the love you have for each other in those pictures.
We are continuing to pray for you and your family.
I remember thinking that your photographer was expensive. Um. Worth. Every. Penny.
Happy Valentine's Day! You are a beautiful couple and your love just oozes from you! Enjoy your day with your Valentine sweeties!
Beautiful...no other words to describe it!
What a beautiful tribute to your wife and your marriage. My daughter has CF and I hope she is lucky to have a husband like you some day.

You have been blessed to be a blessing...
Thank you for sharing your life and your love with us.
Love to all.
Wow - what a beautiful tribute. My husband is such a slacker in comparison...
Thanks for sharing!
Nate, You are one of the luckiest men alive. To have a wife that smiles as beautifully on her wedding day as when she is in the hospital under extreme circumstances is simply amazing. Happy Valentines day to a wonderful family. Kristin
Thank you for sharing such a beautiful video.
Lots of love to you both and your baby girl.
Thinking of you and praying
I'll have to look at the video when I get home from work. I can't wait. Happy Valentime's Day. :)
What beautiful pictures! Such an incredibly beautiful ceremony.....should be in a wedding magazine! Happy Valentine's Day!
Your wedding day looked like the most beautiful day. The photographer did a fantastic job of capturing the true essence of the day-LOVE.
Happy Valentine's Day to all 3 of you-may your love continue to grow and strengthen for many, many more years to come.
So sweet! Pics are great as well
That song is my ringtone for my sweetie, I love it!
What a beautiful tribute to you both! Thank you again for sharing and giving us all hope. Love to your family.
What a beautiful video and beautiful wedding! Wow, and it's only Part 1!
Tricia looked so beautiful and she's very lucky to have such a romantic, loving husband.
What a beautiful wedding day... the pictures are gorgeous. Tricia, you are a lucky lady! Now, I think I am going to go love on my hubbie a little bit... :-)
Gorgeous! Tricia was absolutely stunning. I also loved the flip flops! I rocked flip flops under my wedding dress!! Totally sweet!
Happy Valentine's Day :)
OMG... she is beautiful! what a precious gift you have been given! Here I sit complaining that my daughter is Autistic... we serve an amazing God and He can work miracles.. He already has!! YOU ARE BLESSED Nathan! praying for you here in Tulsa, OK.
You are one of the reasons I believe in true love. Happy Valentine's Day.
Beautiful! Happy Valentine's Day!
What beautiful pictures! I was watching this with my daughter and she first asked what the girl's name was and I said "Tricia", then she asked what the prince's name was! She loves Cinderella and thinks every guy is a prince. She is almost 4.
So enjoy being a prince today to your 2 princesses'!
Truly beautiful wedding photos and a wonderful gift for Tricia. :) Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us.
Very nice. Congrats on the million hits. Ummm - maybe a shout out/link to your wedding photographer? I'm assuming you were happy w/ the services?
Thank you for sharing that very special Valentine's Day present with us. I think you are both two very lucky people to have found each other and Gwenyth is a very special and lucky little girl to have you as parents.
That is what I call true, romantic, transparent love. Both of your eyes say it all in your pictures. I pray everyone gets to experience being treasured that much by someone at somepoint in their life. ~EK
That was quite beautiful! Fun for us to see on Valentine's day. No heart of stone in this crowd. We love celebrating your love every day.
Nate and Tricia,
Our family and friends from Dunn, NC have been following your story since the night before Gwenyth was born. I have to say we are addicted to youe blog. First, because of how through all this you both have given GOD the Glory. You are truly amazing people. Thanks for sharing your life and your story with so many people. Our first child came at 24 weeks. I have to say there are lots of ups and downs but, he is now 11 years old and doing great. He has no problems from coming early. Also we have alittle boy almost 5 who was born with rare form of MD. The doctors didn't think he would live to be a year but with GOD grace we are still enjoying him spite the vent/trach that he is on 24/7. I love reading your story because it encourages me and others to keep fighting for our loved ones and know GOD still works miracles daily. We pray for you all daily.
Love in Christ,
Yes, you've done it again...can I EVER come to your blog without shedding a tear...I think I'll make it my next resolution.
Your love is so amazing...it reminds me of my own marriage, and it is so refreshing to know that this kind of love in a couple exists all over out there. Praise be to God for the love He gives to us through our partners!
Thank you for being a strong man and sharing your fears, concerns and love for your wife with us.
I was truly touched to see the pictures of your wedding day. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for reminding us that God loves us eternally and unconditionally and we are to do the same.
Happy Valentine's Day to You, Tricia and Gwyneth.
May God make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
Absolutely Gorgeous! Both of you. You made me cry the morning of Valentines Day, happy tears of course. I wish you both a Happy Valentines Day, thank you so much for sharing this video with us. You are both amazing people!
BEAUTIFUL! Better then any card, box of chocolate or big heart shaped balloon! The world could certainly take a page from your book about fulfilling the vows people take on their wedding day - you are obviously even more committed to each other now then ever before! God Bless all three of you and may you have a wonderful Valentine's Day! (Still praying!)
Such stunning photos--what a gorgeous union! God has definitely given you something special, and you can see it in both of your eyes.
Happy Valentine's Day to you both!!!
This was absolutely beautiful Nate. Being away from my husband this Valentine's Day is hard, but that helped to make my heart a little lighter. You two are so lucky to have each other. I hope Nicholas is lucky enough to find someone that special. Tricia was and is so beautiful. It looked like a beautiful ceremony. Thank you so much for sharing that piece of your heart with all of us. We are so priviledged. Happy Valentine's Day to all of you.
In His Grace,
What a beautiful tribute to your lovely wife!
Now it's easy to see where Gwyneth gets those fabulous good looks! :)
God bless you both and much love to the baby on her first Valentine's Day!
So glad you both listened to God when he brought you together. Yours is one of the best love stories I've ever heard...only God could create a story like this one. You were BOTH radiant that day! And still are today! God BLESS you both!
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!!
I really love the photo at 3mins 55sec, it's black & white & you're both looking back at the camera :)
That is so sweet! I was thinking......you really are great at this blog thing. You've got 1 million hits to prove that!!! Amazing!! Who needs the writers to get writing again in Hollywood when we have a much better thing going on here with NATE! What a great "Valentimes" treat. It is great to still be "in love". Thanks for sharing!
Perfect song for a perfect slideshow!
Happy Valentine's Day to the Lawrenson 3! >:0)
Praying that you three continured to blessed, and continue to bless!
Relishing in His goodness...

You are so crazy in love with your wife, Nathan... and she in love with you! What a beautiful video- a friend and I were talking at lunch yesterday and she told me she was also following your story. We both marveled at the evident LOVE and devotion you have for each other... God Bless your little family, you were meant to be here and change lives through your example. Thank you for doing so with mine.

the subject matter is beautiful, but the love from all in the photos makes it that much better!
So tell me, are you getting a kickback from the photographer for the free advertisement? I don't know who he or she is, but they are WAYYYYY talented. Beautiful work.
Thank you for sharing your wedding day with us. I love the footwear.
You are such a beautiful couple (and family)! Happy Valentine's Day!
I haven't had a chance to watch the video yet, but I think it's cool you've done a whole tribute to Al's birthday. ;)
As I've said before, the photos are gorgeous because of the subject matter. And, whoo-hoo.. I was kind of skinny to boot.
Happy V-Day you too!
Simply beautiful!!! Made me cry as usual... in a good way. Enjoy another wonderful day together.
I am in tears! That is the sweetest thing I have ever seen! You are both so very lucky to have each other! I have never in my life seen a more beautiful bride!

I love the video, so beautiful.I want to say how lucky both of you are to have each other and a sweet beautiful baby girl to love and watch grow.
Nate I was going to ask the name of the song and I saw it. I laughed and said I could hear you saying I put it at the bottom of the video so they wouldn't ask,lol.
Happy Valentine's Day
A friend sent me a link to this blog and I can't stop checking in on you guys! Your story really touches me because my nephew was born on January 7, 2007 at 25 weeks 4 days and weighing 1 pound 9 ounces. He just celebrated his 1st birthday last month, is cutting his 5th tooth and is crawling all over the place. God has a plan for him just as he does for your beautiful daughter!!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Hope you get listed soon ...
THAT WOULD BE GREAT! :)
A gift from the heart. Tricia is one lucky girl :)
I am sure she LOVED it!
Beautiful video! An incredibly heartwarming way to begin Valentine's Day. Your love story continues to enrich the lifes of all who "tune in" on a regular basis. Your love, faith, hope and trust in God have proven that anything is possible for those who love God. May God continue to hold the three of you in the palm of His hand and may your story continue to be an inspiration to all.
Nate & Tricia,

Thank you again for allowing us to witness your lives! God bless.
