We’ve spent the last year investing in our new community and enjoying adventures together. Dave-Man and I operate from such a foundation of trust that things that used to cause issues don’t anymore because we both understand and forgive much easier when we’re confident of the other’s love. And while it’s painful to remember the bad parts, the love we have for each other is so much sweeter now. Sometimes it’s difficult not to be married after going through so much with each other, we feel such a strong and deep bond. But we trust the God’s plan is perfect and good and in his timing things will work out and he will continue leading us.

Our story is one of many mistakes getting in the way of love. But like everything else in life, Christ redeemed our story and in the same way he saved us individually and made our lives new, he saved our relationship and made it new.

We’ve been together 2 and a half years. Those kids on the beach in the UP feel like a lifetime away. We know life has many more joys and struggles in store for us and I pray that we may remember our one true and secure hope in this life through every step of the way.

As we prepare for our wedding in 3 months, it’s amazing to look back and see the path we’ve been on and realize that the shut doors and twisting paths actually led somewhere much better than we could have planned for ourselves. With this testimony of God’s faithfulness, I am excited to see what other unexpected adventures lay ahead.

I sought the Lord and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears – Psalm 34:4
