This past week Jonah and I visited Salish Lodge at Snoqualmie Falls in Washington. We are celebrating 13 years of marriage, a milestone for our generation. When Jonah asked me to marry him, we talked about how we were (mostly me at 19) were on the young side to be getting married. Jonah assured me that we would grow up together. And we have.
Together we have worked, served, laughed, cried, prayed, changed. We have done college, surgeries, moved, traveled, built houses, had babies. We've each taken turns to stand on the side and cheer the other toward goals. We have been partners in every sense of the word.
It hasn't always been easy or perfect.
One of my favorite thing about visiting the falls is that everyday that there is sun, there is a rainbow on the cliff by the falls. It blessed my soul to see it, to remember God's promise. It reminded me that though there will be rainy days, the sun will come. We have hope! We have joy!
I may just be the luckiest woman alive.
