Happy Half a year! :)

Hey Matthew,
Happy Half-Year of our marriage :) I'm loving every minute of it and I'm so blessed that God put you in my life. What a great gift you are to me. I look forward to many, many great years to come with you. I Love you Eternally and I believe that Eternal Love is truly possible because with God all things are possible.

Matthew and I were married exactly 6 months ago to this day (May 28th, 2005) and it is now November 28th. Time goes by fast! I believe in celebrating everything in life and what a great thing to celebrate :) The icon here is of the Wedding at Cana. I thought it was cool, because it shows more people sitting around the table than there are in other depictions of this particular icon. As well, the water into wine jugs (sorry for the untechnical term :) are not present. Rather, it is the part when Mary is first telling Jesus that they have ran out of wine. I really liked this image when I was looking here on the internet, because it made me think about the image of the Last Supper and as well of Communion. We are called to be in communion with Christ and with one another. Fellowship around a table is one of the best ways to show this Love.

Have a great week everyone!!! :)

PS Am I the only one who has trouble with these word-verification things? They stress me out!

You make me want to be in love.

Then again, I think a pencil sharpener could make me want to be in love. I mean, what's not to like about being in love?!

Thanks, friends, for all the good cheer!

The way I see it, MatJenny, the word verification is a test of mettle... it often takes me too or three tries. But then it becomes a 'language game,' and I curiously imagine what language it is. Icelandic? Pashto?

Oh yeah, I think pencil sharpeners are pretty cool too. I always remember the kind with the handle as being a sort of cool break in primary school... like "oh, now I have to go sharpen my pencil."

Yep, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Well, congratulations you two. Today at work the guy who books the bands was trying to tease me and called me a "dink". I said "Did you just call me a dink"... and then he said "Yes. You're a dink.". So, instead of thinking of a witty comeback, I'm just a-gonna pay it forward. Happy six months... you dinks.

Ah, Hadley, you old s@#$*#@&#n ... "le mot juste." You always know just what to say to make someone feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And that's why we love you, you dink.

congratulations Matthew and Krista.

I rarely get the word verification right on the first try! It is the p's and q's and g's that cause me grief.
