Marriage

Happy 1,000 Days of Marriage!

July 19, 2014

I thought Friday was just a regular ole day.

We had a friend in town who I saw off in the morning. Then I got cleaning and puppy-proofing the house.

Midday I realized I needed some music in my life to spice up the monotony of cleaning, so I called Jonathan to inquire about where our wireless bluetooth speaker was located. This was the conversation that ensued:

Jonathan: “It’s upstairs on my nightstand.”

Amanda: “OK, great. On my way there now.”

Jonathan: stammering sounds…silence…mumblings…”Wait! It’s actually down stairs in the storage closet…inside that white bookshelf…in the bottom cabinet.”

Amanda: “Oh. Alright. I’ll go there instead.” (Not even thinking that it would actually be WEIRD to place a frequently used speaker in a storage closet cabinet)

I got down to the storage room and pulled the light string. I opened the bottom cabinet and found this:

Some of you may remember Jonathan pulled something just as creative on our 500th Day of Marriage. So this trick was right up his alley and I am so grateful for him.

It’s these little things that make marriage a true, undeserved gift and joy. The intentionality of another person expressing they choose Y.O.U. to love with everything they’ve got.  It’s a reflection of how God does this to each of us every. single. day. in the little things.

Pretty cool to ponder.

To celebrate, we grabbed a bite to eat at Piggin’ Out Bar-B-Que and it was A-MA-ZING!!

Then it was off to the Pet Supply store to grab some essentials for our pup’s arrival TOMORROW!!!! 🙂 Stay tuned for some really cute pics of our little dude.

Last but certainly not least, we watched The Lego Movie to end the evening.

      Jamie – LOL, great reference to the Lego Movie theme song. It’s pretty much all I have been singing since that night! 🙂 It’s too good!
