I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

So, I'm sitting here in my living room, on the couch, in the dark (the girls are having a camp-out in the living room, boys are jealous :-p) thinking about this Saturday. My brother is going to be married on Saturday. He and his daughter have been living with us since we moved back from Canada. It will be four years this summer. We never thought he'd get married, he's 35 and never been married. I'm very happy for him as he enters this new phase of his life.

With that being said, there has been a lot of reminicing going on. We've been going through a lot of old picures, which of course creates an incredible walk through time. Pictures of when we were kids, of when we were teenagers (serious 80's flashback), when I got married, when my sister was married, the birth of our children, etc... My husband and I marvel at how young and thin we looked way back when we were young*er. :p  I never really thought of us being young when we got married (he was 21, I was 18), but now that we are much older and have children that are 18+, we both realize how young we were.  It has been fun taking a trip down memory lane though. When remembering all we thought we knew about life back then, and what we know now (and realize what we still don't know), I could never have spent this time with a better man! I have the greatest husband, and he's the greatest father to our children. Is he perfect, no! but heaven knows I most definitly am not either! I am so thankful I trusted the Lord for my husband and waited in His perfect timing.

Another wonderful thing happening this weekend is Valentines Day. Now it's not the actual holilday that's wonderful, but the fact that the 14th is my parents 40th wedding anniversay. Considering my parents got married when my mom was 15 and my dad was 17, that 's a pretty amazing thing to accomplish, especially this day and age! I am truly blessed with amazing parents, they truly give of themselves for their children and grandchildren.

I love this picture of them! They've had a lot of real hard times, but they have made it through and grown with each other. They are an amazing couple!! I am so blessed to have them as my parents.
