A few weeks back I found myself unable to fall asleep.
I figured I would take a trip down memory lane and look at Jonathan and I’d friendship history on Facebook.
Sappy, I know.
Here we are on one of our very first dates – when Jonathan still had beautiful flowing locks of hair. 🙂
While the posts were a lot of fun to look over, an overwhelmingly evident truth hit me:
Our lives are not our own.
For whatever reason, God has placed Jonathan and I in positions where we have to depend and rely on others in very concrete ways. We’ve been fundraising our income for almost 9 years so we were used to not only giving to others but receiving the gifts of others’ time, talent, and treasure. Because of that, I don’t think I truly noticed at how God have repeatedly asked us to bring our relationship into the public eye and ask for the assistance and generosity of others.
