today's the day...

I celebrate  29  30 years

with my best friend.

It has been fun~ it has been hard~ 

~it has been full of adventure~

~it has been full of grief~it has been full of joy~ 

~it has been a learning experience~ it has been humbling~ 

~it has exasperated me to tears~it has been a revelation in the

 character of God~it has revealed the character of me~

~it has been rewarding~

It has been perfect!

He is my other half~he completes me~ he balances me~ he

 bails me out and He loves me.~He thinks I'm funny.~He

 makes me breakfast on Sunday's.~

 He serves me with all of 

his heart.

How thankful I am

for this wonderful, mysterious plan of God...

when two become one.
I posted this last year and it is still so true...

it has been a year of me walking beside him 

in his time of grief...God is so faithful.

I'll be back to show you some of our get-away trip


let me tell ya

these  Portland gals rock!



Happy Anniversary!!

Happy Anniversary and I hope you guys had a fun weekend. I'm so glad you took the time to stop by and chat with me. I truly enjoyed meeting you.

Take care,


Julie said...

Oh Happy Anniversary and congratulations! Yes, marriage is a journey...never totally finished..or at any one point completed...because our becoming one just keeps changing and growing stronger as each day, and week and month brings new joys, tears ( I read about his grief, oh how hard...) and new challenges to conquer together. It is like being forged together in the hot fire by the Master Smithy...our Lord. He truly makes us One. Stronger together than we ever would have been apart. I think of when Paulie asked Rocky in the movie series what he saw in his sister Adrian...he said ..." we feel gaps"...yes. well said. we complete each other as no other person could have. Well said in your blog. I agree wholeheartedly.
Beautiful post. Enjoyed my post.
HUGS! I will be back!
