Finally, I am writing on the blog. We are finally married and Bryan has allowed this to be a joint blog. So hopefully our voices will be obvious enough that people will usually know which of us is writing.
Married life has been wonderful. It has been an extremely easy adjustment for both of us. I'm not as bad of a cook as I thought I was. My mom making me help her a little in the kitchen really paid off. It's fun looking through the cookbook and finding things I can cook. Our kitchen is really small, but it forces me to clean up as I go - another habit Mom tried to teach me.
We are really excited about what God has been doing in our lives. We have been seeking for God to change us. I guess that is one thing that marriage does more than dating. It makes it very apparent how self-seeking I am. So that is something I have been challenged with. We MUST fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. There is nothing I can do without keeping my eyes on him. As far as practicalities go, God has provided so perfectly for us. Before we got married, we thought we would just live in Texas for a couple weeks and then go straight down to Mexico. But God provided jobs and a three month lease at an apartment complex for us. We really don't have any clue what will happen a year from now, but what is there to worry about? If we look at how God has taken care of us, we have no reason to fear what will happen to us. I guess that just goes straight back to keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus. That's a little of what's going on with us. I'm hoping I get more used to this whole blog thing in the future. I haven't done this since high school and my blogs back then were pretty lame.
If you'd like to get our newsletter by email, leave your email address as a comment. We send those out about once a month.
I'm also trying to convince Bryan that our layout is super boring, but he seems to like this one. Hopefully we can get it a little more exciting soon =)
