one decade ago...

On this day ten years ago...
we celebrated the marriage of our only daughter. 

Heidi and Tim committed their lives to each other before God...

...with friends and family as their witnesses.  

Grandpa's car was their getaway vehicle...
and they made a hasty retreat once the wedding celebrations were over.

With ten years of  wedded bliss behind them...
they are off on another retreat this weekend.
Maggie is coming for a sleepover at Grammy's.

As I was looking through their wedding pictures...
I didn't think all  that much had changed until I arrived on this family photo taken on April 28, 2010.

That was it...there were seven of us!

Today we are fourteen...
and counting the weeks until the next one arrives.

Tim and Heidi...

...may He who brought you together continue to bring you good things.
Things like hope, joy and love!

Being confident of this, 
that he who began a good work in you 
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. 
Phil. 1:6 NIV

Happy Anniversary!
