Beginning our life together

God has a sense of humor. God has a perfect plan. God's timing is perfect timing. God's ways are not our ways. God will make a way.

These statements have been very prominent truths in our lives here lately. The story of how God brought both of us together at the perfect time, how he used both of us to lead each other to different types of spiritual freedom, how he molded us and shaped us both in just the right ways, at just the right time, how he cut out a path for us that seemed to be impossible at first... it's all actually pretty amazing. We have such a unique relationship, such a unique story. It's definitely not typical. It's definitely not fairy-tell. But it's real. And I love it. Maybe one day we'll share some of those details.

As of March 6, 2010 it became "official" that we have made a lifelong commitment to each other. The truth is, we knew well before March 6, but, of course, the ring makes it real. We've decided to create a blog to just keep track of all the blessings and happenings of this new life together. What a blessing it will be to look back from time to time and just remember all the blessings the Lord has poured out on our lives together, and to see all the stuff he has pulled us through. God is so faithful. He has been in both of our lives and we know He will continue to be.

We invite you to join us in this "blog journey" of our new life together. Please join us in prayer as we commit ourselves, both individually and as a couple, to the Lord. Pray for guidance, peace, strength. Pray for wisdom. Pray for Godly counsel to come beside us. Pray for God to use us in whatever ways he sees fit for His kingdom. Most of you reading this probably know a lot better than we do about exactly what needs to be prayed for-- so please, join us in this!

Proposal story coming soon!
