Fix My Eyes

Blessed & encouraged by these lyrics sung at Apex this morning.

"When my heart is weary, when my soul is weak
When it seems I can't traverse the trail before me
I survey the glory of your agony
And I find the will to fight for what's before me
Cause you ran the race enduring for your glory

I fix my eyes on you, the founder and the finisher of our faith
I fix my eyes on you, the solace in your suffering is my strength 

As I fight to follow, you're my righteous guide
And you train me to delight in all that's holy
Heal my broken body, cure my crooked stride
Throw off every weight and sin that clings so closely
I will run the race enduring for your glory

You help me breathe, you're the only life I need
You died for me, you're the only life I need"

Five Years

Five years ago today, I married the guy who was at first, my hunky neighbor, who quickly became my close friend, who then became my crush, which eventually lead to our facebook status "in a relationship", and then one day I realized...I can't go one day of my life without him...

These past five years have been full of blessings & challenges and "the truth is, love is a decision and not a just a feeling.  It is selfless, sacrificial, and transformational." -The Love Dare

Marriage is not always easy, but it's a gift, and A has been the most wonderful gift of my life.  Looking back at this snap shot video of our wedding day, it's a reminder to me of God's faithfulness because I prayed so hard that he would fall in love with me..and it worked! :)  Happy Anniversary A! Looking forward to every day of the rest of my life with you.
