The Best Worst

I have had the best worst year of my life.   Hmm...not really sure if that's possible but somehow it worked out that way. A little over a year ago (August 4th to be exact), the man of my dreams gave me a beautiful diamond ring and asked me to be his bride.  By far the best thing that anyone has ever asked me :) 

Then reality hit and I had to step down from my position at Lifechurch, by far one of the hardest things I've had to do.

I also got very sick and ended up having to have my gallbladder taken out.  

Birth control did a number on my body, emotions and hormones.  WOW we won't even go there...

LOTS of job issues.

So basically it's been a rough year.   

Finding the "perfect job" isn't an easy task.  Especially when you are a wedding coordinator! I was recently doing events for a place and decided to leave there so I could pursue weddings fully.  So right now I am unemployed and searching for the right place for me.  It's very difficult to feel like I'm not contributing to our little family (someone has to buy the dog food!).   

But as I look at all these "terrible" things I've gone through, I'm blown away by the blessings.  Each thing has brought Brook and I closer.  I trust him and know I can count on him for everything.  He sees me through it all, and loves me unconditionally through it all. Everyday God shows me how much He loves me and cares for me through my husband.  I never knew love could be like this! We are definitely stronger because of it all, and believe me I know how to deal with a bad day when it comes my way! 

So bring on the hard times, we can handle it and by the grace of God...this too shall pass.
