Three Years Ago Today...

Today Jonathan and I are celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary! These three years have flown on by. I can't believe it! When I was looking back through our pictures to have some touched up (since it's been yes, 3 years that I've had empty picture frames on my walls - yikes!) I couldn't believe how young we look!! I don't think we even look like this picture anymore:)
Jonathan, we have had many ups and downs this past year with losing a job and with that money struggles and then gaining a wonderful job. We had to have a lot of trust in God this year, which I can tell has made you a stronger Christian and an even better husband than you were (if that was possible!) I would go through this last year over again because it has strengthened our relationship so much and taught us so much. Through the next many years we need to remember this difficult year and how God guided us through it and had a plan for an even better life for us. I know that some people are not as fortunate during trials and it tears them apart. That's why I thank God for you and for us every day. I love you so much and am so blessed to be able to spend the rest of my life with you as my husband! 143

Dear Abby,

You are the most wonderful wife a man could ask for. We may look younger in the wedding picture, but you are more beautiful every day! I am so blessed by my Father to have as beautiful and loving bride as you. I love you my dove. 143.

Happy Anniversary Abby (and Jonathan)! What a beautiful wedding picture and you both still look very young to me ;-)

Abby, I was so drawn to you & your blog this year as I watched your faith through what you & Jonathan were going through with the job situation. You were such an inspiration to me and I am so excited for you two as you venture into another year of wedded bliss. I think it's very telling in how God brought the two of you together in how you have endured the hard times this past year. You will be amazed on your 10th anniversary to see all that God has done in drawing you still even closer and you'll be amazed at how much MORE you'll love one another with each & every passing year.

Continue to walk together hand in hand with God and each other and never forget these days of closeness and all that God's done! He is SO pleased with you both I'm sure. :-D

God's blessings to you both!
