"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

13th Anniversary

June was a very busy month this summer. From VBS to Ainsley's birthday and all the swim meets and practices in between, we stayed very active. Somehow we found time to go out to lunch to celebrate 13 years together as a married couple.

I look at this beautiful picture of us 13 summers ago and think how young and well rested we look, and how madly in love we were with each other so excited to begin our journey together.

In 13 years, we have moved into 10 different houses (or apartments), we have lived in 5 different cities and served at 6 different churches, I finished college (the first 2 years of our marriage) and Andrew has completed Seminary and written his first book, we have had 3 beautiful babies and several unborn babies lost, and many more blessings than disappointments along this road of life together. The Lord has been so good to us and we might not look as young (or beautiful) as we were 13 years ago, but we are stronger as a couple now more than ever. I am so proud of my man. He is an incredible father, spiritual leader of our family, my best friend and pastor. I love him and know I am so blessed! Happy 13 years, sweetie!

"Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him. Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth." Hosea 6:1-3
