31 days

31 days – fall 2013 – praying together

Yesterday, we hit another milestone as newlyweds… the big 3!

Three MONTHS that is – we have officially been married for a total of 93 days according to our wedding website.

We celebrated our three month-a-versary by making having breakfast for dinner! Can you really ever go wrong with that?  I shared a picture on instagram of our candlelight affair… pancakes, eggs, baked apple crisp {which we didn’t even touch}, fruit, syrup, sugar, coffee, and homemade whipped cream. Buddy the Elf would have been proud. {Pssst- did you know that you can make your own whip cream? Goodbye cool whip and all your crazy ingredients that taste so good. You’ve been replaced.}

three month-a-versary

It was a sweet time together talking about the usual day to day things, the past few months, and also all of the unknown that lies ahead.

It seems like there is quite a bit of uncertainty right now in our life. Where will we be next? Should G start seminary right away? Should I go back to work?

With all of these questions that tend to flood my mind, I find alot of comfort in my own daily prayer time with God.

But something new I’ve been able to share with G these last few months is praying together as a couple.

When we pray together, it not only draws us closer to Him, but it also draws us closer together because we are reminded of our purpose together: to know Him more and to make Him known to others.

When we approach our Father together, asking for His will, guidance, and plan to prevail over anything we want for our selves, it reminds me that He knows the path before us and we just need to continue to seek Him.
