6 Years Together

Aug 7, 2016 | Marriage | 0 comments

This Sunday my husband and I will celebrate our six year anniversary. Whenever I look back at old pictures of our time of engagement or even our wedding, I am so taken aback by how things haven’t changed, and how they have changed so much at the same time.

One of the sweetest gifts of marriage I have found (or any close relationship even!) is being able to first hand see God working and changing both of us to be more like Him. It’s amazing to think of the people we were, the people we are now, and marvel at the (sometimes difficult) road that God used to grow both of us. We are far from perfect, but I thank God for the growth in my own life I have seen thanks to the Lord and the encouragement of my husband.

This song was sung at our wedding- I loved the words then, and they have so much more meaning to me now. Six years in- and I know in the years to come that will only become more true as I marvel at our Lord’s loving leading.

Happy Anniversary David! So thankful for you and our wonderful, sometimes crazy life 😉 And here is a video of our silliness 🙂

“Lead of Love” by Caedmon’s Call

Looking back at the road so far
The journey’s left its share of scars
Mostly from leaving the narrow and straight

Looking back, it is clear to me that
A man is more than the sum of his deeds
And how you make good of this mess I’ve made
Is a profound mystery

Looking back, you know you had to bring me through
All that I was so afraid of
Though I questioned the sky, now I see why

Had to walk the rocks to see the mountain view
Looking back, I see the lead of love

Looking back, I can finally see
How failures bring humility
It brings me to my knees
Helps me see my need for thee

Looking back you know you had to bring me through
All that I was so afraid of
And though I questioned the sky, now I see why

Had to walk the rocks to see the mountain view
Looking back, I see the lead of love

I had to walk the rocks to see the mountain view
Looking back, I see the lead of love
I see the lead of love
