Time seems to be a phenomenon to me.
It feels like it was just yesterday when Jared and I became no longer individuals--but a united couple...the "A-Team" as we like to refer to ourselves as. Wasn't it just a few weeks ago that all our wonderful friends and family were surrounding us and showering us with the blessing of joining us in our celebration? It seems like Jared was just promising to be with me as long as our earthly lives endure...
And yet--it was almost 4 years ago...wow.
In those 4 years, I have understood even more fully what a blessing Jared has been to my life. Not that I couldn't live without Jared, but without a doubt-I would never want to go through this adventure without him. It seems almost impossible to try to express what a joy this journey is. But it really all goes back to our loving Savior. Without Him-there would be no journey to have. No family. No friends. No purpose or joy.
Praise be to the God of all things good.
I remember journaling before Jared and I got married: I decided I did not want to be with anyone unless we were bettering the kingdom of God together more so than we were apart from each other. Then when I experienced the ministry Jared and I were able to do together, I knew it was an answer to prayer.
Thanks God for this gift.
