One of my bosses used to tell me that if you want to learn to be like Jesus you should get married. What he meant was that it would take the patience of God Almighty to withstand everything your spouse might throw at you. Ha. And while Jesus has indeed had to help us thousands of times, we have Him with us. We ask for help when we need it. We push through scary times like we had with Joy before she was born. Like now when we need to sell our house and it hasn't sold. We trust that God is molding us to be more like Him and His grace allows us to keep on trying. We have more understanding of what our marriage is now=It's one half circus, one half very calm nights by the stream. Not that we have a stream by our house but you know what I mean. The kids provide the circus. It's our imperfect life. It works. It is a gift and it is wonderful.
Happy Anniversary babe. I love you more every single day.
