With the chance of showers, the air is the same.  How we prayed and He answered, parting clouds, soaking up rain, unearthing the light of day. For such a time as this.

Sunshine floods in; eyes wide open with view familiar.  We’re toasting the day, sampling wine from the vineyard.  Thankful for the grower and the seeds He’s sown.

Love awakens with the peal of bells. “Here comes the bride…” It’s a day glorious, not by way of scenery or style, but with words spoken, covenant making words.

Today marks the day.  Words spoken softly; unrehearsed.  These words bind, holy covenant on our lips in unison with our Maker, our cord of three.  Words of love.

Celebrating years we don’t deserve, unmerited favor, and a love not ours, but a gift.  
That day, 5 years past, we never imagined the days set before us; 
heartache, loss, joy, and gladness.  And yet, we’re here. 
Stronger, solid, thankful and so in love. 
Still walking the road...

5 years.  4 cars.  3 homes.  2 babies.  1 God.
Today we're off enjoying the day right where it all started.

"You are our God, and we will give thanks to you; 
you are our God; we will extol you.  
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; 
for his steadfast love endures forever!"
Psalm 118:28-29
