Happy Anniversary, Jesse!
For this anniversary, I gave Jesse 4 framed pictures I took of our back yard in each season. Jesse loves living in a place with seasons. He enjoys not only the beauty of the yard, but also working in it.
Below is the passage that I was thinking about as I did this project. There is a season for everything, and I'm thankful to be living each season alongside my best friend. I recognize that it's a gift from God to find satisfaction in our work, and to see the paradox in our work. It's never done! Do you ever feel frustrated that there's always one more weed to pull, more food under the kitchen table, or more laundry to be done? Well, let's praise God because what He does endures FOREVER. Why does He do this? So that people will praise and fear Him. I do praise Him for creating the seasons, making work for us, and bringing a man and woman together in marriage. Even more, I praise Him for preparing a place for those who love Him for all eternity. He's such a good God and so personal.
