Blast from the Past
Okay, I came across this picture on Monday and couldn't resist posting it. It brings back so many memories. This picture was taken in 2005 on our mission trip to Turkey. Stephen and I were not at all interested in each other, but we were just becoming better friends on this trip. (However, I always thought he was such a cutie). The "craziest" thing about this picture is that Stephen and I are now married and the couple on the far left are now married too---and NONE of us were dating at this point. My friend Julie jokes that we should start advertising for a "meet your mate" mission trip, wouldn't that be a hoot?! But we both look SO differently huh?! I love my hubby's hair and ever since we started dating he's kept his curls to humor me :). Honestly, I just think he has the best head of hair out there (and our hairdresser agrees with me;).
Okay, one last thing I'll say is that when I look at this picture I am truly so grateful for the places that God has taken me and the healing that he's brought to my heart. While I loved being single and all of the things that came with that season of my life, I love being married to Stephen so much more. I love this new chapter of my life. God has been so faithful to me (as I not so patiently waited for him to bring me to this place;); And I'm full of gratitude towards Him this morning.
