And it’s Been 4 Years Today
Today we were blessed to celebrate four years of marriage…It’s strange because part of me feels like we just got married but at the same time I feel like we’ve been married forever..but in the best sense of forever. Forever not with a sigh but forever with a very thankful heart. And I do pray it’s forever in terms of days on this earth…
One year later we were blessed to celebrate one whole year of marriage. Maybe not the easiest year but a very sanctifying year…working through differences, getting to really “know” each other…trying to be a little less selfish. Lesson after lesson…the beginning of really dying to self.
Our 2 year anniversary…pregnant. So pregnant. 9 days from meeting our baby girl. Excited and nervous…little did we know how different this new phase of life would be. How God would be refining us and sanctifying us. Sleepless nights, a screaming infant…clueless. What do we do with this tiny thing?
Year 3. Better than the year before. In the routine of being a family of 3 and loving (almost) every day… A baby who is old enough to spend the night with grandparents. Enjoying the luxury of being just us.
And year 4. Big and pregnant but not as big and pregnant as year 2. Loving my husband more every day. Realizing how much I depend on him…because he is the man I love but also my best friend and my teammate. The man who continues to amaze me with his growth and maturity. Blessed to have spent these past 4 years learning to love, to sacrifice, to parent, to budget, to paint walls, to weed gardens, to grow vegetables, to change diapers, to stay up through the night, to run with, to drive with, to take vacations with, to eat with, to laugh with, to sing with, and even to fight with. I thank God for our marriage. For the blessing it has been to me. May he grant us many more years together on this earth.
