tony and i were just reminiscing about how he proposed, the conversation triggered by a news segment about over the top proposals.
his proposal was perfect and simple.
and it led to us joining our lives together, building something new and organic, forming a family, growing and continuously joining
love is a choice
and every day we choose to love each other
to extend grace
to seek the best
to give and serve
in our involvement with young adults in our church we often talk about relationships and are often a go-to person at every stage
as they fall in like
as they make decisions about how to move forward or move backwards
as they take the next step
as they join their lives together
its one of our greatest joys, and greatest consternations
we see the heart living and the heart breaking
because what is joined must be built for a lifetime, united, strong, grace-filled, forever lasting, life giving
my life and my future is joined with his
our children are a blend of us both
(and oh how they are so like us in so many ways and so alike just one of us in so many ways)
day by day, the choice is to join with each other in this adventure of life
joined by God
for His purpose and glory
