We haven't made any posts to our blog for quite some time now. So I thought it was time for an update. I don't think we will be posting often.. matter of fact, this will likely be our last post.
To close the blog I simply locked the blog. Unfortunately, a few people thought we had locked them out – absolutely not the case. We were going through some big life changes so decided to just shut the blog down.
When we set out on our cruising adventure we knew it was going to be life changing. But honestly, we had no idea HOW life changing it was going to be. It reminds me of the saying “what doesn't kill you makes you stronger”. Well the adventure nearly killed us, but in the end, made us stronger than either of us could have ever imagined.
First I want to shout out to our friend's David and Stephanie. I doubt most readers of this blog know who they are as we met them cruising, but I think their lives followed a similar path as ours. They never gave up us and were always supportive. Stephanie just kept telling me “we went through it too – it will be okay”. Thank you!
When we left the Puget Sound we thought we were a fairly normal average couple. We had our issues, but we loved each other and found ways to work things out. Then we turned our lives upside down. We nearly destroyed our relationship but in the end discovered what true love actually is. We have found an intimacy that we never imagined existed. We know each others most intimate thoughts and feelings. We have a love for each other that will never be broken. Words will never describe it fully.. but you know what it is when you meet certain couples. I always wondered how they did it. Well, I don't know how THEY did it, but I know how we did it. I just smile and say “thank you” every time someone says “wow, you two are quite the love birds”. We don't go around doing inappropriate PDA so I can only guess it is because we glow.
Even greater than our love for each other is our love for our Lord. Our faith has grown immensely. I use to think my faith and love for the Lord was very strong. But now I realize how shallow it was and how much growth there is yet to come. I thank the Lord for loving me when I did not love Him. I thank the Lord for loving me so much that He has filled my life with love.
So as I said – what didn't kill us, made us stronger beyond our wildest imagination!
God bless you all!
