three years ago

Today, June 7th, 2011, marks the anniversary of three years of blessing.

On our wedding day, everything happened so quickly...

Hair fixed, face beautified, the dress squeezed slipped on and tied.
Walked down the aisle, said our vows, exchanged our first kiss.
Pictures, food, dancing, greeting, and thanking.
Said our farewells and drove away from the church to our hotel...  ... ...

Three years later I find myself in a place far from what was on my mind...

Chasing my terrible terrific two year old, moping up the spilled milk.
Lugging around a belly, attempting to find anything in the closet that fits.
Cleaning my house, getting ready for the sitters to arrive.
Throwing up the hair, whisking on [the beloved] mascara, just in time...

I can't stop the smile from spreading across my face.

Though some days I find myself caught up in thoughts such as Motherhood doesn't suit me... or Ya know, marriage doesn't suit me either.... I am thankful to God that I find myself here.

Because above all things I am where He wants me to be. And despite my wishing upon times that never got to happen for just Jason and myself; we have one - and a second coming - more adored member with which to share and make precious moments. The joys are increased.

My heart is grateful.

My life is overwhelmed with love.

My husband and I are the best of friends; true confidantes, patient in love, and evermore becoming entwined as one.

All thanks be to God, our Creator, greatest Lover, and healing Saviour.

Jason, without you I cannot truly be me.

  1. You are an amazing writer. I check for new posts way too much and am always encouraged by how you bring it back to Christ. I know how you feel from the wedding dress straight into motherhood, cleaning and a light coat of mascara. Really makes me realize my husband loves me for who I am in God and not everything else the world says he loves you for... it's somehow comforting to be down this road a few years later and see love GROW even though everything else is a little bit more dishelveled than we would like. Praying for you always sister!
