7 years ago...

..... Jason and I got hitched!
It was the happiest day of my life and one I'll never forget.


This weekend we are celebrating 7 years of marriage.
And, this is the 17th year since we met each other!
God plans things out so much better than we would.

Thank you, Lord Jesus for carrying us this far. 
Thank you for walking with us through the deep valleys -
For rejoicing over us when we experience the joyful, exciting times. 
You are the reason our marriage is what people would call a "success". 
You're the reason we have a happy, peaceful home. 
Your Word and Your love and Your faithfulness is what binds our marriage together. 
You're the best thing Jason and I have in common :-) 

We love You and we know we owe the past 7 years to You; committing the rest to You as well. 

Thank You for the man You gave to me 7 years ago. 
we are happy.
we are thankful.
we are blessed.
because of You.


And for some more BIG news... 
We're also celebrating the joy of expecting another baby!!!
Our family is thrilled and SO thankful to God!
More to come {of course} on this topic :-)

Great is Your faithfulness, oh God!

Happy Happy Anniversary! I hope your weekend is fantastic. And...Happy Happy Baby News! Hope you are feeling well...if I were closer I would make you a meal or hang out with your kiddos to give you a break...since I can't do that, I will be praying for a healthy, smooth pregnancy for you!

Congrats!! That is awesome and encouraging. You guys are rock solid people and the world needs more kids raised by rock solid Christians.

Oh and WELCOME to the 4 or more club. Having 4 kids or more is the BEST!!!

Of course, you know I am super thrilled that you all are expecting again. :-) I agree that you all are raising wonderfully God fearing kids--it's great! And Happy Anniversary to you both! I love wedding anniversaries. In a world where being married is becoming a so-what, I think it's super important that we celebrate those who take their vows seriously. May you both enjoy many more years together!

I read this post yesterday as I was going out of cell service on the way to our campground. I was desperately trying to type a comment on my phone and post it before it was too late, but lost cell service!! SO, now I can wish you all a HUGE congratulations, I "awwwed" out loud when I read your news, so very very exciting!

Charlotte said...

I know I already congratulated you on Facebook, but I just want you to know how happy I am for you about your new blessing. And I loved seeing the photos from your wedding!

Stef said...
