1000 Days

I adore my husband. I absolutely do.  I happily cheer him on in everything he does and support his bravest endeavor to undertake 4 long and challenging years of Optometry school.

In all honesty, however, it does get taxing at times - this whole grad school thing. And (more often than I'd like to admit) I find myself wishing to fast-forward past this time to his graduation and the start of our 'real-life'.  BIG MISTAKE.  By wishing away this time, I'm missing out on the Gift. The relationships to be built, the memories to be made... you get the point.

Well, today marks 1000 days until my beloved Mr. graduates from Optometry school. (but who's counting?) Inspired by this project - and instead of wishing away this precious time - I will spend the next 1000 days identifying specific ways that we see God's gifts, faithfulness, and blessing in our lives.  1000 gifts in 1000 days.

Here we go!


  1. Did you read this book? It's definitely one of my favorites!! It has helped me look for the good in all situations. I know "waiting" for the end must be hard, but you're right. There is SO much for you to love now!!!


Just Us

We will also remind you that this is just a BLOG…just the highlights. We don’t sit around happily smiling for pictures all day long. Our life is far from perfect: we are imperfect people serving a perfect God. We do strive to glorify God, but we fail miserably and find comfort in knowing that our debts have been paid and we have been set free.
