mY, My I bELieVe tHaT I hAvE FoUnD true LOVE

Today in World Christianity Garrett stole my page of notes while I was writing, and I started to feel a little spark of annoyance, when he gave it back to me... He had written a little note on it that said, "I love you." I just looked at him and smiled. It was so sweet. While pondering on this memory of today, I can't help but think of how wonderful Garrett's and my relationship is. Ever since we have moved to Portland it seems as if we have grown closer. Not only that, but it feels like our relationship is new again.
It was such a struggle for me to move here to Portland. But now that we are here, I am happier than ever. I know this is where God wants us to be right now, and because of that we are both blooming.
I am so glad that Garrett and I waited a year to go to college so that we could get used to the married life a little more and try and save some money. But we both knew that we wanted to go to college and it made that year of working full time in a dead end job very difficult. That also put a little bit of a strain on our relationship. But, like I said we both know that this is where God wants us and where we want to be. Because of this, our relationship is also growing and thriving.
There are so many struggles and sacrifices that we are having to make right now, being a young married couple who both go to college full time. But despite all the hardships, we are the happiest that we have been and are more in love than ever.
I just wanted to share a little bit and let you all know that God is blessing Garrett and me. He is definitely showing us His love through each other, and He is providing for us through all the struggles.
Things are so great and life is good, but we could still definitely use your prayers, especially for our financial situation. Thanks in advance. :)
I will end with saying, I am a very blessed girl. God has given me a loving and amazing husband, a supportive family, a godly school, wonderful friends, and an awesome home church in Boise. I really couldn't ask for anything more. Praise God!
