The kind of friends who:

when they go to St. Louis, and hit up Trader Joe's, and by chance see your wedding flowers for sale--

buy them for you.

I love that the flowers I chose for our wedding aren't that well known, and aren't that available. They definitely have their season, and so I know when our anniversary comes around, so do ranunculus. It makes it extra special every year. So much so that when I went to St. Louis this weekend and hit up Trader Joe's...

I got some more.

three years

Today is Jeremy's and my anniversary. The last 3 years have been wonderful, and rough, and full of hard life things. We won't be celebrating today; we have group at our house, and a baby who won't take a bottle (which is all my fault, I know), and this darn, life-sucking house to clean and fix, etc., etc.

I'm hoping that in a week or so we'll be able to go out to dinner and just breathe and be together. And (quiet!) I'm ordering a custom poster for him from (she's got some cute, cute things) that will be a surprise and (I'm betting!) something that he'll love. I'll post a picture when I get it.

Isaiah 9:2

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.

I forget the magic and wonder of this life we live with Him so often...

So thankful that at the very base of what we believe as Christians is not rules, or prohibitions, or misery because of sin or hardship-- it is the skin-tingling magic, the all-encompassing joy, the life-altering love that overwhelms the heart and mind and spirit. He still surprises me with how good He is.
