Five



Today we celebrate five years of marriage! Just as it was planned around Spring break five years ago, the same break is here again. Part of us says, "Where did the time go?!" while the other part is very aware of how rich and wonderful and challenging and full the last five years have been. God has been so good! He's kept us by his grace and given wonderful purpose to our lives. We feel very much the way David must have felt when he wrote Psalm 8, "What is man, oh God, that you are mindful of him?"

He has kept us and been so close through all the seasons of life so far: our first year and a half of Jason finishing school and living in the Bowyer's one room cabin ...our year living overseas and the confusion and challenge that resulted...to our almost two and a half years at Southern Wesleyan as part of the incredible Resident Life team. One thing has been clear: God's grace is truly made perfect in our weaknesses.

Now, five years after we committed our lives to each other, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our son (within the next 5 weeks)! We're also going back to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee next week to celebrate each other and what God has done, just as we did five years ago after our wedding. All the while knowing we could never have deserved this. We are just beyond grateful for it and aware of the treasure that we guard. Thank you Jesus for five sweet years.

In this day and time, 5 years is a great achievement. God's best for 50 more, if He wills it.
