NOT just your typical Sunday....

Yesterday morning was a lot different than most...While we would normally get up and go to church, we did something a little different....
It’s no secret that the last few years, but especially this year has been very hard on both Kaz and I. We’ve both been through a lot with infertility, his mom passing, the stress of 2 jobs, etc. Through the hurt of what we’ve been through, often times we lashed out at each other, put other things as priorities instead of us, etc.
Back in June, we talked about renewing our vows....We talked about it for a couple of reasons..
When we got married, we meant every word but we really didn’t think the first few years of our marriage would be as hard as they have been...we didn’t know what for better or worst meant[we probably still don’t even know what half of that means]. We never really thought life would be hard. When we got married we just saw the good...buying a house....starting a family....We never once thought life wouldn’t be picture-perfect.
So yesterday morning, Kaz and I went downtown to where he proposed and renewed our vows...just me and him. We didn’t tell anyone...it was just us....Neither of us would change one thing that has happened in our marriage, but it was important for us to make the commitment and promise all over again and know that knowing what we know now, wouldn’t have changed our commitment 4 years ago. We had the absolute best morning...
We went for a run downtown[one of our favorite things to do together]....Sat on a bench, looking at over the harbor....and danced on a little dock to the song we danced to at our wedding.... “What a wonderful life...”
So while there wasn’t anything fancy about yesterday...it meant the world to me and Kaz.
Instead of a tux and white dress, we wore our t-shirt, shorts, and running shoes....
Instead of a pastor and room full of people, it was me and kaz...and the beautiful harbor[and a couple random people walking by]...
Instead of giving up or letting the devil have a foothold in our marriage...We WILL continually fight for truth, hope, purity, and love....
The most perfect morning....


and I think to myself....what a wonderful world!

What a beautiful day! (And brought God so much glory!!) It is so sad what infertility can do to marriages, and love when we don't let the enemy have a stronghold through those painful times. Congratulations for making great heart choices during a difficult time...I can tell you that 22 years after the beginning of our struggles through the same - it is so worth hanging in there :)
