Well, I thought that I would do a better job at maintaining our blog after the busyness of the wedding had ceased, but as you can tell, that's not the case. I'm not even sure how many people are still reading this!
It's now been a few days over 2 months and I can't say that marriage has been significantly different than I had imagined (in a good way.) We have found ourselves to be really busy, so I'm looking forward to winter, when it gets darker earlier and I feel less guilty about pjs and the couch at 6 p.m.
we're certainly learning a lot about god, even in this quick 2 months. i can't think of anything that will make us more like christ than being married to ian, and that is the purpose of marriage. we had many many reasons that we waited this long to get married, but if anything, i would've done it sooner. i love being married to ian. it just feels natural. he's my best friend. we both wish this were much different, wish for no brain injury, wish that he had his dad back- and there is real grief and real battles and real temptation tied into that- but we are both learning daily to value christ higher than perfect communication, life without a wheelchair and physical ease.
god is good. and i'm glad to be a murphy.
(p.s. pee wee herman and dotty!!)
