Remembering and chronicling..
In appropriate timing, I have put together a series of posts detailing my and my husband's love story, from friendship to marriage, which can be found at the Love Story tab at the top of my blog. Or, by clicking here.
Today also marks 8 months since my love and I entered into covenant and, through the ups and downs of our very young marriage, I want to remember the path that we have walked, every detail, every word, every moment that has marked our story. Remembering is such a sacred act and it leads us to chronicle those memories and stories. And chronicling stories helps us to recall the good providence of the Lord in seasons when we cannot see so clearly.
I adore hearing people's stories, how they met their beloved, key life events that transformed them, and so much more. I think it engages and unites us to one another, keeps us humble, makes us thankful, and grants us eyes to see the Lord working, providing, and moving in unique, powerful, and small ways. There is always so much to be revealed to us in this gift of sharing and giving to one another snapshots of our Maker intimately and gloriously filling these temporal lives of our's. Perhaps, this is why I love blogging so much, as opposed to websites like Facebook, because there is a quality of sharing that goes on across blogging that involves being engaged to one another, reading, and focusing in one at a time. I suppose it harmonizes with my way of connecting with people.
For anyone who stumbles across this post, I would love, love, love to hear any stories you have to share, whether through comments or directing me to your own posts in which you have chronicled parts of your life story. :)
