Life Lately

It's been a little over 8 months since we've been married and I love our life together. It's so freeing to know that someone is there no matter what may come, and loves me just the way I am. I'm more crazy about my man than ever.

Lately, I've been seeing how God is using us together. One of the things that attracted us to each other when we first met was our shared love of leading worship and music in general. The first time I saw Jonathan he was leading worship at a Bible study...playing the guitar and singing. *Swoon* Before he even met me a friend of his started telling him about "this girl that he just had to meet." On the list of attributes that caught his attention were "she sings soprano" and "plays the piano." Not long after we started "talking" we found out that we both attempt to write music as well. Ok, I attempt...he is actually pretty good. It makes me laugh to think about it. We will forever be music nerds. I am very ok with that. It's been so amazing that we've had the privilege to lead worship together lately. We just come alive when we do that like nothing else in the world.

I'm excited so see where God is leading us. We are running on this path rather blindly, not really knowing where the Lord is leading. It can be frustrating sometimes because I want to "plan." I wish I knew if we were going to Seminary soon, where we are going, how long we are going to stay here, if we'll ever leave, when we should have kids, if we'll ever be settled, and the list goes on. Even still, it's a thrilling journey we're on. I know God has a plan for us and I'm just so happy that were on it together. I wouldn't want any other life. I'm so amazed at how much better I become with my husband. God knew what He was doing when He brought us together! I am so grateful that He did!

Well, that's all for now folks. 

Side note: I dyed my hair brown. I kind of feel like a rock star now. Don't ask me why. I just do.

I can completely relate with this post (minus the marriage because, yeah, I'm only 18.) My family consists of a bunch of music "nerds" and I was so excited when I found "my" music nerd! I love having something so special to share with him!

P.s Rock on rockstar. The brown hair is killer. :)

Jennifer said...

Thanks guys! I've been blond for a while now...so change is good. And it's only semi-permanent. It will fade back to natural if I don't want to keep it.

What a sweet post. And I so remember being much younger and asking all those questions....well, maybe not so young and still asking, too. God is so faithful and what a journey He has us all on.
You two are doing a great job with worship at RBC....we are so thankful for you and excited to see where God will take you.
You are precious!
