Eight Years Later…

April 15, 2014

On this day (April 15) in 2006 over 350 people gathered at Faith Presbyterian Church in Tacoma, Washington to witness two lives joined together.  I’m pretty sure many saw two crazy kids getting themselves in way over their heads with plans to spend life in Alaska.  All this, after a lengthy (insert sarcasm here) six-week engagement (or a two-year friendship, you can look at it either way).

Eight years later I still picture us as two crazy kids in way over our heads…but in the last eight years I’ve seen God work and provide in more ways than I could’ve imagined on that sunny/rainy/hail-y/cloudy day in 2006 (yes, we had all weather fronts…should’ve been a sign).

In eight years we can count…

  • life lived on two continents
  • life lived in three states
  • owned two houses
  • called six structures home
  • owned five vehicles (including a moving truck and a motorcycle) – correction two weeks later, it has been SIX vehicles
  • owned cats, a hamster, fish, chickens, quail, guinea fowl, and rabbits
  • and, of course, four children (three here, one in Heaven)

What in the world will the next few years, or the rest of our lives, bring???  I can’t wait!

So much love times eight years equals lots more love.

So much love times eight years equals lots more love.
