for better or worse

I don't think either one of us anticipated having to face our vows - for better for worse, for richer for poorer - as quickly as we did. Eight months after we got married, Andrew lost his job, and here we are eight months later having dealt with it rather well. This evening, Andrew and I were unpacking from a weekend trip to Concord. I was in one room, he was another, and we were cracking up over something that I honestly can't even remember now. And this was the conversation that traveled down our little hallway:

Andrew: Page, you know what?
Page: What?
Andrew: We're so happy.

It's simple, but I think it catches us off guard sometimes. Given our circumstances, we should be stressed out. And our green marriage should be shaking. But it's not. I have to believe that the Lord has blessed us with grace during this time when we weren't even asking for it. I have to believe that the He has his hand on our marriage. Because despite everything going on around us - we are so, so happy.

  1. That's so wonderful!

    Luke and I were talking about this very thing just a few nights ago. It really is a wonderful thing to be happy with each other.

    I can't imagine the stress of not having a job. Y'all are awesome! :)

  2. Thats awesome.. I dream of having that in a relationship one day.. Thanks for a good reminder a good guy is worth waiting for... Although I didnt think I'd be still waiting at 29.5... (yes. I'm done rounding up)
