eight years

Once again we celebrate another wonderful year of marriage. Each year we choose a word to sum up the last year of marriage. This year, there was one word we came up with that could encompass both our year of marriage and our life. "Building". In the last year we've had our fourth child, been to six different countries, have learnt that both of our fathers are very sick with cancer, started homeschooling our oldest child, all whilst trying to learn a Banto language, put in roots and develop relationships with the people we live among. 

So, little by little we are building. Building on our marriage. Investing in our children. Creating more important memories with our families so far away. Growing in our language skills. Forming new relationships. Oh, how we need the Lord's help!

Neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.  (I Corinthians 3:7) Lord, grow us and those we love to know you better and to walk in your ways.
