celebrating six years

Today Josh and I celebrate six years of marriage.  I can't tell you how grateful I am for this man.  He is grounded, kind, honest, loyal, loves the Lord, committed to me and Micah (and Evie!), and so determined to be a great provider for our home.  

We were talking the other day and I mentioned how our anniversary was coming up.  It got me thinking about wedding vows and such, especially the "for better or for worse" part.  

Me: I kind of wish God had a less 'worse' for us to go through.
Josh: I know baby.  But worse always means worse.  

So that's where we are.  God has put this part of our marriage vows to the test.  But we said we'd stay committed for better or for worse and by His grace, we will.  

We wish it were different, but are so grateful to go through it with each other. 


  1. Love that pic. Your wedding was wonderful, and you two are such a great young couple. Maybe not so young anymore, haha! Love you both. So glad you have each other to cling to through these hard times. It's always a bit easier with a loyal friend by your side.

  2. Congratulations,kids!
    When your mother and father-in-law, Sarah, got married, we had this song as special music. It speaks about the supernatural aspects of a Christian marriage. I like the line at the end, "never going to die."

    "I could never promise you on just my strength alone
    That all my life I'd care for you, and love you as my own
    I've never known the future, I only see today
    Words that last a lifetime would be more than I could say.

    But the love inside my heart today is more than mine alone
    It never changes, it never fails, never seeks it's own
    And by the God who gives it, and who lives in me and you
    I know the words I speak today are words I'm going to do

    And so I stand before you now for all to hear and see
    I promise you in Jesus' name the love He's given me
    And through the years on earth and as eternity goes by
    The life and love He's given us are never going to die"
