5 years

"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him." 1 Cor. 2:9

Five years ago today, I married Jordan. My best friend. My soul mate. Jordan is such a great husband and daddy. He is a Godly husband, he makes me laugh, and he works hard to support our family. I couldn't have asked for more!

It's hard to even believe that five years have come and gone. We've been on quite the journey, considering 4 months after we got married, we started trying to have a baby. I never could have imagined what a test of patience and love that it would truly be. Jordan was my rock through it all, and, though he was hurting, he stayed so strong. When he lost his job and was bouncing around from job to job and in and out of the unemployment office, he kept his head high. He guided our family as he has been instructed to by our Lord. Because we have kept our eyes on Him, walked together toward Him, and kept Him as our number one, even before each other, God has blessed our marriage immensely, and has kept his promises to us. Such a blessed family we are!

We went out to dinner last night to celebrate at Olive Garden, as is our tradition (except last year, when I had.to.have. Outback's Bloomin' Onion. ha!). He surprised me with a trip to the beach this weekend-we leave Sunday and will be back Tuesday evening!! With NO baby. I'm a little nervous about this since we've never left him before, but I know he'll be in good hands-my parents & his Aunt Ashley Sunday and Monday and with Jordan's parents Monday night until we get back. I'll be back next week to let you know if we all (read: if I) make it!

Have a great weekend!
