I’m Pretty Sure We’re Gonna Make It…………

blog 137“This is my beloved and this is my friend.” Song of Solomon


Yesterday was our fifteenth wedding anniversary. Thanks to my sweet nieces, who hung out with the kids for the day, even baby Lucy, we were able to go away for the day. You may have guessed it, we went to the forest!

These pictures were taken in Portland’s Washington Park. The Hoyt Arboretum is so beautiful! It was the perfect way to spend the day.


The Rose Gardens




God is my anchor and I know my anchor holds. Blue eyes is my ship and he’s pretty well built. I think I’m gonna be OK.

The Japanese Gardens




It was mossy and cool and beautiful and green………everything that the prairie is not. But you know what? I’d pretty much go anywhere with Blue eyes so we are going to the prairie and it’s gonna be good.

Even though we are in the middle of moving I feel so settled and at peace. I think I like being in my thirties with fifteen years of holy matrimony behind us. I’m pretty sure that the best is yet to come.

And my heart is full of praise to our God who “is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Who’s “mercies are new every morning and who’s compassions they fail not” and with “whom is no variableness nor shadow of turning. ” Who is the Amen and the faithful and true God only wise forever and ever. Amen!

  1. I am so glad you got to go to the Rose GArdens! Tha picture of Mt. Hood is breath taking! Happy Anniversary! Love you.

  2. awww that is sweet, and beautiful pictures. You are a very inspiring couple. God bless you with 50 more and better years to come. In or out of the prairie.

  3. I love reading your posts, and I hope you know that sharing things like this give a lot of hope to folks who have doubts. One thing that has kept me hanging on in my 10 yr marriage, even through the rocky last five years, has been watching and thinking about couples that are making it work.
