Our 2nd Anniversary!

1Cr 13:4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud
1Cr 13:5 or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.
1Cr 13:6 It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
1Cr 13:7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
1Cr 13:8 Love will last forever.

Two years ago on this day at approximately 2pm, my husband and I made a commitment before God and before family & friends to love, honor, and cherish each other until death parts us. We're 2 years older now, we've been through much already and we've learned more about each other in the past two years than I ever thought we would in that time. I can't even imagine what it will be like at 5 years, 10 years...25? Wow. I look forward to each and every year with my dear husband. I look forward to raising our darling daughter together! I look forward to having more children and the years we will spend trying to learn how to parent to the best of our ability. I even look forward to the hard times because those times will bring us even closer to each other and closer to God.

My husband Gage is a man of God. He always puts God first, he has a heart for the lost, he yearns to spread the Gospel like no one else I've ever known, he is extremely trustworthy, he treats me like a queen, he is polite, intelligent, and he never ever yells, which is way more than I can say for myself. He is the sweetest, kindest, most amazing man I have ever known. I thank God for him. I thank God for blessing me with such a wonderful husband!

Eph 5:31 As the Scriptures say, "A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one."[fn2]
Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one.
Eph 5:33 So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Finding Joy in the Winter Months

For our family, this time of year is full of two things: celebrations and a slightly overwhelming sense of cabin fever. Both Gage and I cel...
