Once a month I talk about what’s going on in my life at that moment with Currently posts, and then the kids get a monthly post where they get to shine; this post is where Ry gets to take over for a day each month. Hosted by Betsy and Laura, TGBTB linkup is on the last Thursday of each month if you’d like to join up too! (They have since ended the linkup..) Plus it means I get to spotlight this amazing man I have been blessed to share my life with for the past 15 years 😉
In case you are new around here: Ry and I were high school sweethearts, married after I graduated high school, he enlisted in the USAF, and our first kiddos arrived 4 years after that. Our oldest is 6.5, our daughter is 3.5, and our youngest a little more than a year and a half.
Sixteen years ago, when I was sweet 16; I started one of the most important relationships of my life. This shy blue eyed boy was sweet, funny, and adorable. Plus he drove a pretty cool car. (1983 Nissan 280zx 2+2)
I have loved this guy for almost half my life now, and all I can say is how blessed I am to have met him and had him in my life.
Genesis 2:24 records the moment that God, immediately after creating woman from the rib of man, establishes marriage – the union of a male and a female – as the foundation of the family, the child rearing unit. The meaning of this is as clear as mountain air: God intends for children to be reared by a man and a woman who are committed to one another for life. Period.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
I won’t lie, Ry and I had a rough start to our marriage. We were young (only 18 and 19 when we married) and had a lot of growing up to do. I really wish that we had made it a point to study the bible together as newlyweds; but hindsight is 20-20 and the future is cloudy.
