We Were Just KIDS!

Twenty years ago TODAY, this picture was taken.

Twenty years ago.

We were just kids! I look at this picture and I think, How is it that my mother and father allowed me to get married when I was practically still a baby?

It makes me laugh to remember how I thought I knew so much about love and life when Brian and I got married.
Oooooooh, I had so much to learn!
And I? Am so thankful God paired me up with a man who would patiently and graciously learn right along with me.

Smiling at the thought of what the next twenty years will hold for us.

Hey Karen, I feel the same way about looking at my own wedding picture...we were so young too! I look at mine and think, who is she? The person I am now is so different then the person I was then. Happy 20th anniversary!!!! Hope you both have a wonderful anniversary. hugs***chera

Sweet picture! Happy Anniversary! Yes, in those early days, we thought we had a good grasp on all of that stuff... till we started living it! Yikes! :) Life experience is a great teacher... and God's wisdom. :)

Sara - It's amazing how life experience sheds so much light on real life. (So much more than we can imagine in our little minds. ha!) And how it makes me appreciate God's wisdom so much more, too. :)
