full to the brim

sunday was the anniversary of our first year of marriage.
in the past year the lord has shown me so much about myself.
about change.
so much has changed this past year.
two new jobs.
a new puppy.
a new house
(we are finally closing on it and getting the keys tomorrow)
a new church.
a new life together.
and it hasn't all been easy.
too many nights we've been stubborn and selfish and
went to bed angry,
but overall, this past year wasn't a year of paper...
disposable, like one friend told us.
toss it aside and move forward, he said.
it was a year to cherish in our hearts and ponder for years to come.
a year of daily trails and also daily triumphs of love and affection.
pain and sacrafice. and also forgiveness and peaceful contentment.
it was the best year of my life so far.
i couldn't have asked for more.
