Aaron and I were looking at pictures tonight at his parents' house...remembering days from more than ten years ago. (My husband is the ageless wonder.) Days before children and mortgages when we were old enough to be adults, but young enough to act like kids and be stupid. (Why did I have all those bangs??)
In one picture, we are sitting in a bench swing that looks out at the lake where his Grandpa's cabin is located. The picture is taken from behind us, and I have my arm around the back of the swing, around Aaron.
It's just a boy and a girl, at the very early stages of a life story together. We had no idea what kind of future God had in store for us. All we knew at that point was that we were mad-crazy in love with each other and that God was in control.
I smile to think how little has really changed. We still find ourselves gazing out a lake together, unsure of the future, but sure of our God.
And still mad-crazy in love.
