We Were Just Kids

We were just kids... the older I get, the more I seem to realize the truth of that statement! Twenty one years ago I said "I do". "I do" to what? Oh, there have been lots of things "I do'd"! First and foremost, I did to love ... awww - I know, take a moment. I can remember a vivid conversation with my mother when she told me, "you never really know a man till you live with him." That woman continues to be wise beyond her years. But, I digress....

Some of the things I said "I do" to: Love, a best friend, laughter, confidant, strength, dreams, Mallory, Clay, Nolan, growing up, growing older, wisdom, comfort, forever, truth, joys, sorrows, wishes, hopes, completion.

I wouldn't trade any of these things for the entire world. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't have done anything differently. We wouldn't be who we are today without this road we have traveled together. We would have missed that champagne cork rolling off the balcony of our hotel room (instead of it bursting into the air all romantic-like...). The year we lived in Oklahoma City. Using milk crates for end tables. A car battery cable on fire. Making spaghetti from a box. A small dog that ate furniture. The birth of a beautiful daughter. Three long months in Wichita, Kansas. After reconciling the fact that we were probably not having any more children having a huge garage sale ridding ourselves of all things baby... Ten months later, the birth of a baby boy. Buying our first home. An ice storm that rendered us in a nine day power outage. Our growing together years spent in a small town. The crazy lady at the end of the alley. The surprising birth of another boy and knowing he was definitely the last baby we would have. The big decision and following God's lead to move "back home". God growing us and using us in ways we would never have imagined twenty one years ago. Have there been hard times? Yep. Will there be more? Most likely. But knowing that the good times far outweigh the bad times is complete joy to me. And knowing the wonderful man God gave me will be right there by my side makes all the difference. It's been quite an adventure - I'm looking forward to the next fifty anniversaries!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
