It's been a while....
Tonight has has a peace over it that I feel like we havnt felt in days. We just finished up dinner (I made chili...yumm) and we are both just sitting on the couch catching up on emails and other odds and ends. The house is relatively clean, laundry is in the process of getting done and we have both had productive days. The last two weeks have felt very chaotic and we have not exactly felt grounded so I think we are both appreciating this night together. I can't believe we have already completed our first two months of marriage. It has been amazing and challenging and I think we have both grown a lot. I'm so thankful for my husband and so thankful for the relationship we share. We are so thankful for our home, for our church and for our friends. Nights like this we can't help but praise God for who he is and all he has given us. Circumstances aren't always the way we would have them, life isn't always easy and we aren't always pain free but God is always good, he always loves us and he always provides for us and that makes life worth living.
Journey Church is going well. We are seeing new faces every week and we have had our first family that has never been to church commit to Journey church. It is exciting to see people taking their next steps in their walk of faith. Our relationships with the people here are growing deeper and every day we feel more and more at home. I personally have become to really connect with Erica the lead pastors wife and I am so thankful for her.
Mark and I are excited to begin saving for our one year anniversary. We decided that we would go somewhere to celebrate and get-away and spend a week together. There is one idea based on a friend here and his marriage but we dont have any plans yet just saving money. I am excited though.
We are super excited about the fall weather. Mark and I have both decided that this is our favorite season. We have pumpkin candles that we light and some fall decorations and we love cuddeling on the couch on cool fall night.
We will continue to enjoy this weather and hold our breath for the snow that Im sure is just around the corner.
