Eight Years and the List that Never Ends # 461-470

Eight years ago today, this is what Josh and I were doing.....

I'd do it again today.

Thanking God for....

# 461. ... eight years with my best friend.

# 462. ... for a husband who is faithful, a hard worker, a servant, and a leader.

# 463. ... for a lot of good times that made us laugh....

# 464. ... and some difficult times that made us grow.

# 465. ... for encouraging and supportive families who have emphasized the value of a healthy marriage.

# 466. ... for our little fuzzball Harvey who provides us with endless entertainment and fodder for stories that we make up about him to amuse ourselves... :o)

# 467. ... for opened doors and God's provision over the last few years as we've faced unemployment, the illness/caretaking/death of a close friend, changing careers, going back to school, Josh being away from home a lot, and even more changes looming on the horizon...

# 468. ... that my Mamaw's health issue cleared up on its own, she didn't need surgery, and she's home recovering now... thank you for praying!

# 469. ... for the institution of marriage itself - for the comfort, security, and joy it is to have someone committed to you for life and who loves you in spite of yourself...

# 470. ... for the deeper meaning behind the symbol - Jesus' love and sacrifice for the Church, and her
submission to and love for Him.

Happy Anniversary to us, Josh!
I love you....

  2. Congratulations, i hope that your next year is blessed...so glad your mom did not need surgery...

  3. We are neighbors on Ann's community link-up this week. Happy anniversary! May there be many more as you keep growing in loving God and each other. Your list is a beautiful testimony and encouragement. I'm glad I stopped by. Grace and peace to you in Jesus.
