“If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were loved by wife, then thee. If ever wife was happy in a man, Compare with me, ye women, if you can. Thy love is such I can no way repay; The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. Then while we live, in love let’s so persevere, That when we live no more, we may live ever.” Anne Bradstreet

 We rejoice and thank God for the 10 years of marriage He has given us. To celebrate we took several days over a couple weeks to enjoy some outings together. I’d been pretty sick but God was good to allow me to feel so much better on each of the days we were out.

For Our Spirits:

It’s good to try to have fun together as a family too right? It’s good, but in our case it is not easy. This is still a difficult phase of family life, with mostly littles. But we try. I would love to have game time be a regular part of our life together eventually. I imagine how fun it could be someday to sit around and play board games or cards together….without someone crying or having to get a spank. We’ve made some attempts. It is getting better. But “better” doesn’t mean much yet.

Today we celebrate NINE years!

“This household happiness did not come all at once, but John and Meg had found the key to it, and each year of married life taught them how to use it, unlocking the treasuries of real home love and mutual helpfulness, which the poorest may possess, and the richest cannot buy.

This is the sort of shelf on which young wives and mothers may consent to be laid, safe from the restless fret and fever of the world, finding loyal lovers in the little sons and daughters who cling to them, undaunted by sorrow, poverty, or age, walking side by side, through fair and stormy weather, with a faithful friend, who is, in the true sense of the good old Saxon word, the ‘house-band,’ and learning, as Meg learned, that a woman’s happiest kingdom is home, her highest honor the art of ruling it not as a queen, but as a wise wife and mother.” Little Women
