The third, and most important topic for our newsletter, comes to me in the form of a mathematical equation: 10 years divided by 2 individuals yields what? March 10th, 2011 marks the date that Tyler and I will celebrate our 10th anniversary. Ten long years ago two young adults working their way through College were called by God to become one flesh and join together in the greatest earthly journey known to man.
In the years that we have been together, we have grown from those two young adults, to becoming a mother and father and raising a family together. What an incredible expedition the Lord has brought us through. Graduating from College, building a house, having a family, selling a house, to raising a family, and building a new home in Christ. In hindsight, events always seem to come together perfectly as though they are from the pages of a book. But that is not how God has directed our life; it is not to be perfect to the point of prediction. Rather, the perfection is only seen when one looks back, the present always seems muddled and confusing: Walking on the line of overwhelming activity and responsibilities; only by turning to the Lord daily can our past come together as beautifully as a fairy tale.
With that said, I want to address my mathematical equation. 10 years for 2 Godly people results in what? Would it be a surprise to learn that it is in fact, 5? Does it not fit perfectly that in the same year we celebrate our tenth anniversary we also welcome our fifth beautiful child from the Lord?
Please join us in our year of adventure as we continue to serve the Lord, raise our Family, and rejoice with our friends.
