The Un-Spontaneous get Spontaneous!

Even though it is only 4 days in, March has been one memory making month! Here is a look back over the last few days...

March 1st- Rylan is 7 months old!! 

Sometimes it's still hard to believe that God would trust us with something so precious and sacred. In this blessing, He has also given us a daunting task- raising Rylan to be a Godly man. It is through our actions, not our words, that Rylan will learn right from wrong, and how to love others. Which leads us to another event on March 1st...we left for the Keys! I know, you are thinking what does the Keys have to do with raising Rylan to have strong morals and beliefs? 

March 2nd- Our parents join us in the Keys, we head down to the Key West Courthouse and...
get married!!

While marriage has always been where we were headed, it just wasn't very high on our priority list. I mean, we had been together for almost 3 years, love each other unconditionally, and have Rylan. To us, it felt like we were already married. Yes, we felt convicted that we were living in sin; but we just didn't want to do anything about it. When we first started going to FCC, our conviction kicked into overdrive. After speaking with our pastor last Sunday, we realized that we could never truly raise Rylan in the way we are commanded to do, if we ourselves were living in sin. So...we made the arrangements, and less than a week later, we became Mr. and Mrs. Smith! Even better...

Our parents joined us!

It was perfect! We could not ask for a better family. 
We will post more pictures from our trip soon. For now, have a blessed week!

With Love,
The Smiths
