Welcome

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our family blog. This may be your first visit here, or you may be a friend from across the globe, or family that we have just seen. Who ever you may be, thanks for taking the time to read about our little family, and all we are learning on this adventure the Lord has called us to live! Here you will find, the random thoughts, funny stories, prayer requests, and the journey our family and Jack is on with his battle with Leukemia.

.wedded bliss.

Maybe not bliss. Certainly not without our flaws. Yet here we stand, by the grace of God. More in love, better friends. No better match for me. It seems so long ago that we said our "i do" like we were just kids, without a clue as to all God had in store for us, yet ready and eager to begin our life together. Pastor CJ Mahaney gave a short message on our wedding day, reminding us of the truth about how faithful God is found in Psalm 121.

He reminded us that day, as it says in that whole passage, that we will always be able to look to the maker of heaven and earth for help in times of trouble. He will not let our foot be moved. He will keep our going out and our coming in.... you should read it. And he reminded us that the reason we can do this, is because our God will not move from his throne. We can always look to a faithful God.

And faithful he has been to us. I can honestly say, that as we become more like Him, the result is being more in love with each other. He has proven faithful to us time and time again. He has carried us through difficult trials we could not have withstood on our own. He has helped us overcome sin towards one another. He has taught us how to sacrificially love each other. And he has given us the sweet gift of joy and faith and trust towards one another. What a rich love and marriage we share, because of the wonderful unchanging love of the Father.

So, today, we mark 6 years of this wonderful adventure. I would not want to share it with another! As dorky as this is, I keep thinking of the chorus to the Shania Twain song, Your Still The One. The whole song is not all applicable, but the chorus rings true in my heart!

You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're the one I want for life
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

Oh how I love to be your bride. Happy Anniversary!
