5 Years & 5 Facts

Today is just not any other day for us. It's September the first.  It's the day that 5 years ago, we became one. It marked the beginning of our life together. The greatest change that altered our lives. It would be the beginning of many different kind of days.  Days of laughter, of tears, of peace, of frustration, of happiness and of struggle.  Each day bringing us closer together and cultivating our love.  We are 5 years today, and we love more than we did in the beginning, and we owe it all to God.  He is the only one who pairs to different souls into one perfect soul, completed for His honor and glory.  Happy 5 Babe! You are the best husband anyone could ever ask for! 


In honor of our anniversary here are 5 randoms facts about Us.  
  1. Ruben and I both lived in the states for a while.  He lived in Lousiana for 5 years and I lived in North Carolina for 10 years.  Similarly these are both in the South. We both returned to Canada before meeting each other. Even more similar, we have discovered that we attended the same church conferences and never ran into each other.
  2. When we finally started dating we were 100% we were in God's will and after 7 month's (yes 7 months) we got married.  It's actually a nice testimony, but we will leave that for another time.
  3. We are both middle children.  I have an older brother & sister and two younger sisters, and Ruben has an older brother and younger sisters.  Basically... we relate! lol.
  4. Ruben and I made a deal when we started "talking", and it was that I would ask him out. So basically I asked him out.  The best thing, though, was when he said to me "When are you going to ask me out?.... well whenever you do, the answer is yes".  The second part of the deal though was that he would ask me to marry him, which he obviously did.
  5. I am older than my husband. Basically two months older. I am from November and He is from January, so we were born in different years.  Still only two months older, NOT A YEAR, as Ruben would like to claim, when it is convenient.

Let's Pretend, or not.


This week, I turned 30 weeks pregnant.  30!! where has the time gone?  How do I feel? Well...
Let's pretend I feel as put together as I look in these photographs.
Let's pretend I'm totally ready for Jason to arrive.
Let's not pretend that I was freaking out this week, and my sister in law had to give me a pep talk.
Let's not pretend I completely forgot what I need to pack in my hospital bag. 
Let's  pretend I am mentally prepared to go through the process of giving birth again.

Or... let's not, I mean, can you ever REALLY be prepared for a new baby?

Moments and Reminders

Last year one of our favourite summer outings was having rented a small motor boat in one of resident lakes.  On that small boat we journeyed to the center of the lake. That day we discovered the peace and serenity of the waters, and it was the greatest thing ever.  Even Benjamin was quietly sitting there gazing out into the graceful waters, so serenely.  It was one of those times in our lives when we were so overwhelmed by all the things occurring around us, that we needed to be reminded that God was still with us.  Even pastors have moments where sometimes they need to be reminded that God will get them through the trial.  God led us to this little tranquil place and we were, indeed, reminded of this.  I remember that exact feeling as if it were yesterday. That in a spur-of-the-moment decision we found ourselves in a little boat surrounded by water, and it was the little escape we needed to be encouraged.  (1 Peter 5:10)
On the boat

This year, the experience was quite different. We are definitely not at the place we were the previous year.  This time it was about a family of almost 4.   It was about gentle movements inside of my womb. It was about relaxation. 
It was about a bond between father and son.  It was about fishing, and first time catching of small fish. It was about proud-dad moments.
Fish catching
 It was about a luminous warm afternoon off full of laughter, stories and even singing. It was about the strong bond of a small family.  It was a happy time, and even so, we were reminded once again that everything belongs to God.  That our lives are not our own, and to Him we belong! (John 1:3)

Beach Day

Here are some photos of our day at the beach on Monday. I'm not sure if I have ever mentioned how much I love the beach, but it is one of my greatest loves. Benjamin does share this same love for the beach, and it makes me happy... because he will forever be my beach buddy. Yay!!
