Yesterday Tim and I celebrated 27 years of marriage.
27 years. I'm certain I am only 25 years old, so how could we have been married for 27 years?
As I look back to those young people who pledged their lives together, I wish I had been better prepared. I mean what did I really know about caring for a home and children? What did I know about supporting my husband?
We are thankful for Grace and for fresh Mercy daily. The Lord has used those two young people and has taken their lives and remade them. We are so thankful for this too.
I am a better wife now than I was then, and Tim is a better husband.
We had a wonderful day together. We went to a movie, to a store I had heard a lot about called Terrain. We went to Trader Joe's (don't have one near me) and to dinner. Then we came home to our people and welcomed Emma's Bible School roommate and another girl from school who are from Mongolia and Brazil. They'll be here through the weekend then they all head back to school on Monday.
Today we are taking Tim's mom and brother's family to see Moses at Sight and Sound. We are thankful that we can get tickets through our daughter and son in law!
Monday Tim goes back to work and we get back to our school schedule and back to normal life. Whatever normal means. We look forward to another year of Grace and Mercy in relationship with Christ. We don't know where He'll take us this year, but we are holding on tight and letting Him lead.
Happy New Year friends!
