In Sickness and In Health

That particular promise is in Wedding Vows for a reason - loving one another during sickness can be difficult. This year we are celebrating God's grace in the midst of sickness. He has been so gracious to teach us to love one another when we feel more like taking care of ourselves. He has provided abundant grace to meet our needs when we feel like we can't keep going. More than all of that, he is teaching us to be selfless and to model his self-sacrificing love for us.

So, Happy Anniversary, my dear, sick Brian. I love you more than words can say and am so thankful for the opportunity to serve you during these days of sickness. How fitting that we should remember our vows on a day like today and celebrate the fact that we are committed to loving each other under any circumstance. A lot has changed in two years, but my love for you has only increased. I pray that God will continue to bind our hearts together - whether in sickness or in health. I love you!


Summertime Sickness

Brian was so relieved to finish a semester's worth of hard work that he decided to let his immune system go on vacation! Yep, Brian came down with a nasty case of Mononucleosis on May 7th - one day before he was done with the semester! So, needless to say, the past 2 weeks have been filled with doctors visits, soup, sleep, gatorade, etc. With lots of rest, he should improve over the next month and hopefully be back in good health to enjoy a bit of the summer break! In the meantime - your prayers are appreciated and we'll try to keep you updated on his progress!

P.S. By the way, we don't know how he got it but it certainly wasn't from kissing! :-)


Brian Got Some New Toys...

Yesterday, I got half my shipment of new camera equipment. Yes, it's awesome. I'll post some pics soon (though I'm still waiting for the new camera body to arrive). It's like the eschaton...now, and not yet.

I'll post other exciting news in a follow-up post, but for the moment I need to finish editing my final paper for the semester. Next week: Finals!
