[Love & Marriage] Celebrating Five Years!

This is the week where Mr. C and I celebrate our 5th Wedding Anniversary so brace yourselves for a lot of "mushy" reads from us.

It's just the two of us ever since.  No babies.  No pets.  

The photo that you see was taken during our pre-wedding pictorial.  Oh, that was a fun day spent with our wedding coordinator and the camera crew.  Lots of laughs and memories.  Oh yes, it's been five years and -- lbs ago.

I am amazed at how we have changed as a couple, all by God's grace.  One of the books given to me by my sister was "Sacred Marriage" by Gary Thomas where he posed the question:  

"What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy?"

Let me start with the premise that there is no "Perfect Marriage."  You've got to put your mind and your heart in it. It's like going on a road trip that takes a lot of preparation, strength, and patience.  We've had our share of tantrums just as toddlers do but in the end we just laughed at ourselves when we realized that more than our commitment to love each other is our commitment to love God above all else, including each other.  We can never love each other more than the way God loves us.  

I am truly grateful for my dear one who never fails to brighten my day.  

I will always love you!
