A year of marital bliss!!

Yesterday Jeremy and I celebrated 1 year of being married! We talked about how in ways we can't believe its been a year and then at the same time its hard to remember my life before Jeremy. What a year it has been too! I got married, moved to NY, became pregnant and now moved back to TX all within that first year! To say our first year of marriage has been a year of transition and change for us would be an understatement! I would not trade any of it for the world! I have grown so much and learned so much about life in this year.

I have fallen more in love then I was on our wedding day, which I didn't think was possible! My heart skips a beat when he walks into the room and my favorite time of the day is when he comes home! I find myself looking out the window anticipating him coming home at the end of a work day. My favorite thing to do is just be with him! I love being loved by him. He has made this girls wildest dreams come true! And now I am carrying our child, which for me is a dream come true! He is going to be a daddy and I am going to be a mommy! What could be better in life then that!?!

We had an anniversary to remember...we went and saw our apartment and went to breakfast then he put all our stuff in storage and took our moving truck back. Then I got him all to myself all afternoon and evening! We went to just played, at the mall, target, dinner and some yummy smoothies. It was fun! We are going to get away this weekend which will be nice, my parents have so blessed us by letting us stay with them till our apt is ready and are giving us a night away for our anniversary present! That will be nice!
Here is a little walk down memory lane from our wedding day...

I LOVE the church we got married in, it was all I had dreamed of!

The time has arrived, the boxes are packed and the lots of goodbyes have been said. Its a very bittersweet time for Jeremy and I. We are so going to miss our family and friends here but we also have great anticipation for the journey that is ahead for us. My Dad and brother are here and are going to be driving down with us. Its nice to have them here and we are so grateful for the help! I feel there are so many things left to do but at the same time I am quickly loosing my motivation to do it! I guess we are moving either way so I better have my stuff in order!

Lots of tears have been shed in the last week and its been hard, I am so blessed to have family and friends who I dearly love in 2 parts of the country. I just wish they could all be closer together! I am so looking forward to seeing my family and so many friends that I have greatly missed! Change is always hard it seems! And its amazing to think that in one year time I got married, moved to NY, got pregnant and am now moving back to TX. What a year of change, yet the best year of my life all at the same time!

We would so appreciate the prayers as we make our journey south. I will update once we get to the great state of Texas!

Election Thoughts

I have been a little discouraged by the reactions I have seen from Christians to this election. During election times we have the honor and privilege to cast a vote and put in our say to who we would want to hold places in office. But those are over and the choice has been made. America has voted and we have a new president coming into office. Now don’t get me wrong this is NOT who I voted for and no I am not making light of the huge changes this could bring to our nation and many of those go against what I stand for. But, I serve a God who is SO much bigger then a president and has not been stopped by a leader in the past and I know that fact won’t change today. We as Americans and even more so as Christians are commanded in scripture to honor and pray for our leaders, and that does not change when it is someone who we don’t support. Yes there is a time to mourn our loss but then we must move on and support whoever it is that has been chosen to lead our country.

We live in a country that we can worship freely and although we have someone coming into office whose beliefs go against many of my morals it does not change my morals. I can still stand for what I know to be true! No person or law can take away the joy that I have or change the things I value or the morals I have. No human can take away my right to raise a Godly family and fellowship with like minded people. No man can take away the right we have to share truth with the world!

Pray, pray, pray we can always do that! And it saddens me to think that we have to wait till something like this happens to hit our knees for out nation. No matter whom this nation’s leader is they are always in need of prayer and we as Christians are commanded to pray for them. So let’s take this as a wake up call to the church and pray like we never have but don’t let it end once we see “light at the end of the tunnel”.

So let’s move beyond our sadness and buckle in for the adventure ahead. We know our country is going to need God to show His power in a big way and I KNOW he will!
