a joyful marriage
Mr. & Mrs. Jata
Jacob and I married one another on the sunny beach of Honeymoon Island here in Florida on November 20, 2010.
It was a beautiful day full of laughter, sandy toes, salty kisses and lots of dancing. I was 24 when we were married and I have to say, it’s absolutely the best party we’ve ever thrown.
It was a hella good time.
I still remember the moments leading up to seeing Jacob for the first time at the altar. I was a nervous wreck. Now, looking back, I praise God for HIS GRACE. My heart was in such turmoil back then. In my own blindness, I didn’t realize just how lost I was…
Now that we’ve matured, had a couple of kids… we’ve grown up a lot, both naturally and spiritually… we see now more then ever how precious marriage is.
We try really hard to love each other well.
Honestly, it’s been more challenging than anything else- but by far the most rewarding relationship here on earth. We strive to be better for one another and to honor Christ with our marriage. We are in the thick of it with two little toddlers, work demands and ministry calling. So we are firmly grasping on to one another as we fight for joy in our marriage. Beyond all relationships, marriage is the one that stands out as being the most powerful and capable of showing the world who Christ is. We want to do that well.
I had my eye on Jacob a week before I met him. . .
