Happy Anniversary to us. In case you were not at the wedding, (we missed you! Even if we did not know at the time we got married, our future selves would have invited you!) here is some of the Scripture that was read:
(did you read it? Go back and read it - it is Truth) and here is a picture:
and here is another little graphic I made to sum up the whole three years of marriage thus far (because I can clearly do that in one little graphic, especially a graphic I made in under an hour)
One of the things that I love most about Ian (and there are a lot) is his practical theology. What Ian believes to be true about God and Life, he lives. Part of his practical theology includes calling me out when I say one thing and do another (and that has happened plenty of times in the last three years).
Ian's theology is not some thought that gives him warm and fuzzy feelings and he learned as a child. He thinks deeply about life and the world we live in. Ian makes choices not based on ease of carrying out his actions, but what is best. Ian does not leave people where they are. He pushes them towards Truth. (He usually tries to be gentle at this, but there are times he drags me kicking and screaming to Jesus).
The best part of Ian's theology is unconditional love and grace. I am pretty sure I did not even understand grace when we got married. He has dumped it on me in the bucket loads over the years. And yet, when it is my turn to give grace to Ian, it rarely happens. He does not give up on me. He continues to show me grace. Basically, Ian rocks.
And he rubs my feet at night and buys me ice cream. It does not get better than that.
To God be the Glory! He is the reason that we have made it thus far and He is reason that we will continue onward.
For your continued reading pleasure:
Two Year Anniversary (it is a bunch of pictures)
One Year Anniversary (that time we went to Busan and saw sand castles)
