As the saying goes, ‘another year bites the dust!’ Another year has flown by, another year has had its ups and downs, another year has gone, another year is coming and another year to see what life holds. I have to say I have really enjoyed this last year as a married couple-our first full year being married. I has been just wonderful, we have had our ups and downs but we have got through them, we have had days we don’t want to repeat but have come through them, we have had time with family, we have had time with friends, we have had time travelling, we have had time to just be married and it has been amazing! This last year I have learned a lot about myself but also about how to be married and to put someone else first. This last year has been a learning curve and not only have I learnt a lot but we have learnt a lot being together too.
This last year has been hard, things have happened that have been hard, things have happened that we have regretted, things have happened that we want to move on from, things have happened that we are proud of, this year has gone so quickly and it is amazing how quickly time goes when we are having fun! 2021 has been a big year, we celebrated our first year of marriage, we have been celebrating other peoples marriage, we have been away, we have been getting to know each other more as well as each others family. It has been an amazing and full on year, we have done so much together and I am so blessed that I have got someone who I can call my husband and I can be a wife, it is a learning experience for sure but I would not have it any other way!
Many people say that the first year of marriage is hard and it was totally true! We had to learn more about each other, we had to put the other person first, we had to learn what it is like to live with another person. It was hard to begin with and to get the space that we needed but I am so glad that we are married and that we are now 18 months through our married life! It is strange to think that we a couple of years ago we were not even married yet, it is strange to see how life has taken us and what has happened. 2021 has been a full on year and I look forward to seeing what the next year will bring and what memories and adventures we will be able to go on. I look forward to seeing what our married life holds and how God uses us over the next year and as our live continues.
We both know that unexpected things have happened and life will not continue to go our way, in the end we are not in control of everything going on and we have to accept that. We both know that this year has been a bit harder that we would have thought but we have been able to get through it with both grace from each other but also from God. He has helped us through this last year and He will continue to look after us, to provide for us and to keep us going. When times are hard God will be there, when times are easy God will be there, when we want to quit God will be there, when we struggle to keep on going God will be there, when we are happy God will be there-I am so thankful that God is there and He will help us through all things. I am so blessed that God is in control no matter what happens.
I know that through the last year God has looked after us and he will look after us no matter what life throws at us. 2021 will be over in a couple of days and we need to think about this last year for a moment, have we done the things that we have wanted to do? Have we reached out to those who we have wanted to see? Have we been able to rely on God? Have we been able to love our spouse as we should? Have we been able to provide for our family? Have we been able to do everything that we want to do? Are you happy with the things that have gone on in this year and are you pleased to move onto the next year with no regrets?
