Today marks eight years since we said “I do!” in the church where Jessica grew up in Roanoke, VA. The next five years were spent in Virginia, with education and work at Daleville Baptist Church (Work? Maybe. But such a blessing!), as well as working various jobs to make ends meet and introducing Daniel to the family while we kept working towards the big move across the pond in 2009, while we were expecting David. After three years in Ireland, I think we can safely say that we are starting to get the hang of things, but perhaps the emphasis should still be on ‘starting’! In all that we’ve been through, we have certainly grown in our relationship with God and with each other, and I think it would also be safe to say that our love is stronger now than it was on our wedding day, even though we thought our hearts would burst with it then!
