Five years married today I look back and see a lot of tears.
Tears of pain, hurt, weariness, fear, confusion, anger, and relief. Yet, in the midst of my memories I also see growth. One thing I’ve been learning is we will be OK. Marriage is hard. Sharing life together in selflessness with iron sharpen iron. It’s grieving together, laughing together, encouraging one another, learning more about one another and Christ, and growing together.
I see beauty in the growing pains.
As I look ahead and I am eager for the next to come. The new emotions that we will work through as we face new growing pains.
