I'll never forget this day:



I'll never forget this day:

I'l never forget this Thursday (Feels like we've come a long way eh?):

I'm so glad Jesus gave me Janet, she's an incredible woman. I don't deserve her, I never have, I see that so much more after walking through this with her.

And we both see so clearly that Audrey is gift that neither of us deserve.

We see through Audrey, in a fresh way, in a deep way, how much God loves us.

Ephesians 2:4-9 puts it just right:

"4 But [2] God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them."

Not only did Jesus save us from our sins, and we have so many sins, but he gives us good gifts that we could never be good enough to deserve like marriage and now Audrey Elizabeth Remsnyder. We're amazed at how He loves us. Just had to tell you.
