"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." - Romans 12:12 (recited at our wedding)
Five years ago today, Brian and I said "I do." We had no idea what the next 5 years would have in store, but for better or worse, we agreed then and there to face it all together.
Brian was praying for our dinner after a particularly difficult day recently and said these words, "God, I thank you for my wife. I thank you that we get to share everything - the good and the bad."
A simple prayer, yes, but there is just so much truth to it. Obviously we are thankful for the opportunity to share the good parts of life, but in the latter half of our marriage, we have learned to be thankful that even in the darkest times, at least we are in it together.
Anyway, I won't ramble on any further because I know all you really want to see is pictures :) Like Allison and Wade, we also finally got a hold of the digital proofs of our wedding pictures from our photographer just recently. So even though you might have read the posts from our first anniversary, second anniversary, third anniversary, and fourth anniversary, hopefully these will still be new to you!
Happy 5th anniversary, Brian! I love you!
