blessings beyond measure
A pastor at church challenged us all to write down the blessings the Lord has given us. I think this is a good time to do that. I'm sorry for the Debbie Downer post last weekend...
we have had 4 amazing years in Louisville... time that has completely changed the way our relationship works and made some amazing memories with pretty cool people that have influenced our lives exponentially.
we found a church that has challenged everything we ever knew about being Christians; for the first time ever, we have really experienced living in community with other believers.
we have had 4 years of close relationship with my brother; who half the time drove us insane but I am extremely grateful for the time we have had to finally become friends before our lives take us in completely different places.
we have had a pretty nice place to live this whole time with only a few minor quirks to deal with. A home that allowed us to host small group for almost 2 years (no matter how crowded it may have gotten... no joke... at one point there were 40 people meeting in our little living room.)
our fridge (that we constantly complain about...its tiny and no ice maker like the fridge that was in the apartment they staged for us) has never been close to empty.
we are going to be parents, and according to the doctor this morning I am gaining weight well and have perfect blood pressure...and don't forget the major blessing of no morning sickness!
it took a while for me to get pregnant, all of which time was filled with many life lessons that we needed to learn before it finally happened.
we both have family that love us more than we can understand.
he was Matched into our number one choice for residency.
it only took one trip for us to find the house we are still hoping to move into.
we found a house before the housing market in Greenville exploded...which probably would have made it a lot harder to find a house without competition/in our price.
tomorrow I will have been married to a pretty cool guy for 5 years.
there are so many more but this seems like a pretty good list for now.
Linking up with Julia over at Black Tag Diaries today.
