Three Years Together

PersonalHaley RichelleComment

This past weekend was Ryan and I's anniversary! We decided to go zip lining in Whistler and on the way we made a quick stop at Brandywine Falls. After zip lining we explored Whistler Village and then went to The Keg for dinner to celebrate. All in all it was a lovely day spent in the Pacific Northwest!

“My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God.

My dear, dear friends, if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other. No one has seen God, ever. But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and his love becomes complete in us —perfect love!"

- 1 John 4:7-12 (MSG)

Thank you Dad for teaching me that there is a "system" for everything and that you've usually already got it figured out. Many times you have come to my rescue, whether I was out of gas on the side of the highway at 11 pm or if I had a school project due the next day. You are my biggest fan.

Thank you Mum for listening to my hopes and fears and for never giving up on me. You are a giver - of your time, energy and love.  You are more powerful than you know. Also you are the best shopping partner a girl could ask for.

Thank you both for showing me what God's love looks like tangibly and for raising me with an eclectic taste in music (excluding country of course!) Your wisdom and encouragement has meant the world to me.

Hannah, you are my opposite and in some ways you have been like a big sister to me. Your passion for justice is inspiring! Your future is so bright and I'm excited to see what you accomplish. In the meantime I'm happy to call you my best friend. (Now catch up to Mum and I on Gilmore Girls so we can all watch it together!)

I love you guys.
