Brad and I celebrated 7 years of marriage on Monday!! 7 years...in so many ways it seems like time has flown; in others it seems like it has been an eternity!

Brad and I have been through a lot since that blissful 5th day of April in 2003...so many wonderful, delightful things...sooo many learning experiences....so many heartaches...sooo many laughs - lots and lots of laughs. Oh how very thankful I am that we laugh - ALOT.

Out of the 7 years of marriage, this year was only the 2nd time we had to work on our anniversary. Normally, we go out of town but because of Brad's schedule right now that was not possible this time...BUT, we are planning a fabulous trip for later :)

I started thinking about the number seven. 7 - the number of perfection. In the Bible, God uses the number 7 to identify something of importance - He created the earth in 7 days, and blessed the 7th as holy...we are to forgive others 77 times 7...in Revelations, there are 7 churches mentioned...and, there are hundreds of other times God used 7 in His Word. I looked up what 7 actually meant in Hebrew, and it means to be full or satisfied. So, I'm going ahead and claiming this year for Brad and I as our year of perfection of great fullness in our lives!! To God be the glory!

Bradley, I can't wait to spend another 40 or 50 or 60 years with you. I love you so very much!
