7 Years

7 years, 6 jobs, 5 losses, 4 moves, 3 kids, 2 MBAs, 1 covenant…

On December 4, 2004 I married my friend, my prayer partner, my cheerleader, my husband, my love. Collectively, we’ve worked at six companies throughout our marriage. We’ve experienced three miscarriages and attended two funerals, Uncle Jim’s and Grandpa Early. We’ve lived in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Texas. We’ve been blessed as the parents of three wonderful babies, graduated with two MBAs, and through all this we have been able to remain married.

The most important factor in our seven years of marriage has been our love for God. We pray together, out loud and with the boys. Of course, we could be doing more of this, but we have always turned to God in the good times. I say ‘in the good,’ because of course we lean on Him during the bad, but our relationship with God has not been an as-needed type of relationship. At the Caterpillar’s baptism class yesterday, we learned that married couples that pray together as a family have a one in eleven hundred chance of getting divorced. 1 out of 1100! Whoa, I like those statistics. So, in honor of our covenant relationship, we celebrate seven years of blessings.
