Our Anniversary

Today Tyler & I celebrate four years of doesn't sound like a long time but - it has felt like a long time. It also feels like it has gone by so fast. Tyler worked today & tonight we have stayed in. We were planning a hike tomorrow but it is suppose to rain all day. Go figure...the one day it rains in Arizona! I thought a lot today about our marriage- the struggles, the blessing, the tears and the laughing...and I found myself truly being thankful to God that we have come this far. We are two sinners trying to live together, while also growing closer to our Lord. When one struggles- we both struggle.
 I went to my sister's wedding in May last year. It was a time of joy & celebration. I was so blessed to be a part of the wedding- to see what God joined together. It was a beautiful wedding - Lake Michigan in the background, sun shining, a stunning bride & a groom with delight in his eye's all ending with a reception that will never be forgotten.
The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam[g] there was not found a helper fit for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made[h] into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said,
“This at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man.”[i]
24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
This is beautiful. My sister & the new groom became one flesh... Something that is hard for me to fully grasp.
So today I prayed...I praised God for our marriage...for how we have grown...for God's faithfulness. I then prayed & I will continue to pray...BE GLORIFIED in my life, in my work, in MY MARRIAGE.
To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen
