4 Years!

Jonathan & I celebrated four years of marriage on Thursday, May 26th! WOW - how the time has flown by...as a child I hated that saying...but, it's true!
In four years, we have - 
Both completed our Masters of Divinity
Moved 3 times within Georgia
Traveled to the Bahamas, Ghana, Gatlinburg, TN, Charleston, SC, CO, MS, KY...
Changed Jobs
Had our precious Peyton
Experienced both highs & lows as a married couple
The advice I have given my friends who have gotten married after me - 
Be gracious to one another because you both will make mistakes
Learn each others love language - show them!
Listen to one another & learn how to clearly communicate
Find a hobby to do together
It's OK to be upset near your spouse, but not at your spouse
Marriage is work...good work!
Our Challenge for this next year of marriage - 
We enjoy reading books together as a couple, but need to work on our quiet time &/or devotions together.  We discussed our "love languages" & want to continue to put forth 110% toward the other spouse.  While running this morning, I thanked Jonathan for having the desire to continue to want to work on our marriage & make it the possible it can be! I look forward to many more anniversaries!
JB's first trip to KY & Keenland
Our 1st Anniversary Dating - I thought JB was proposing!
Summer 2010: Peyton on the way!

Peyton's Arrival!
"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy & dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness & patience.  Bear with each other & forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.  Forgive as the Lord forgave you.  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." Colossians 3:12-14 (read at our wedding)
