The Sunrise This Morning

...was very similar to the sunrise on September 20th, 2002. Nine years ago today, on a day of sunshine and blue skies...
this dapper young fellow...
wed this young lady.
In a ceremony at the Chapel on Echo Bay.
Thank you Honey for nine years of putting up with forgotten wallets, cell phone mix ups, dinner mess ups, laundry fiascoes, pregnancy woes, delivery room rantings, middle of the night tears (from the babies and me), floods, moving and so much more. Thanks for enjoying all the good times too : )
Would I go back to that day given the chance? Let's see...go back and do over the last nine years? Three labors again? No thanks--glad those are in the past. Four moves again? No thanks--happy to have that all over with. But just to go back to that day--yes, please! Everyone we love all in one room eating and smiling and laughing and celebrating our love. What could be better? Although, I would probably miss my sweet little munchkins.
Nine years and 3 kids later.
We've changed a bit, and so has our love--for the better, of course. And the God of all Creation still holds us safe in His palm. All the way He has led us, and I know He won't let us go now!

Congrats on 9 years! God is so good to us all. It's great to be able to say you'd do it all again... and also really great that you don't ever actually have to. :-)
