12 years ago today Randy and I committed to each other for a lifetime.
At 17 and 18 years old, we were pretty nervous and had no idea of what lay ahead.
I was a baby Christian and very immature. He was strong and (somewhat) stubborn.
Neither of us knew the first thing about being married and raising a baby.
Honestly I wonder how many people thought to themselves, this won't last more than a year.
There were certainly reasons and statistics to back that up.
It was hard those first years.
And yet it was the beginning of the story that God is still writing.
What an amazing 12 years God has brought us through- by His grace alone.
I can't wait to see what He has in store for the next 12 (and 50 more!)
Someday I'll write it all down...
At my friend's wedding last year (who was my maid of honor!)
Serving the Lord together in Mexico last summer.
The closest I could find to a picture from 1997. This was about 7 months or so after we were married.
