5 Years

Today 5 years ago Joseph and I made a vow! Vows are meant to be kept!
Looking back at that night, we really were so young...even though i felt like i had to wait FOREVER for a husband! I was 25 and he was 27. I remember hearing that there would be moments in our marriage that would not be easy. But, standing at the altar it's hard to even fathom those moments. We have been through a lot...the strong winds really blew last year. I think it's safe to say we have weathered some storms and have made it through and with God on our side not only will we make it 5 more years; but we will make it as long as God gives us life!
When my dad gave me away, this song was sung!

Household of Faith
Here we are at the start committing to each other
By His word and from our hearts
We will be a family in a house that will be a home
And with faith we'll build it strong

We'll build a household of faith
That together we can make
And when the strong winds blow it won't fall down
As one in Him we'll grow and the whole world will know
We are a household of faith

Now to be a family we've got to love each other
At any cost unselfishly
And our home must be a place that fully abounds with grace
A reflection of His face
