Recently I have been intrigued by the Marriage Letters linkup. It's a bit of a tricky thing, talking about your marriage on your blog. I want to keep strong boundaries to keep our marriage appropriately private, to allow us to process and grow and struggle without blasting it all over the Internet. However, I also think it's beautiful allow your real life to be gently and honestly revealed. Transparency about beauty and struggles is helpful for all of us. And so, although Isaac doesn't blog, I'd like to experiment with this Marriage Letters link up. It may or may not feel like my kind of thing, we'll see!
As it turns out, this week the topic was enduring loss together.Well, we are young, and the tally of external losses in our lives is small.
Death of a friend, too many childhood goodbyes, grandparents who passed
away when we were younger.
In any case, because it just felt disingenuous to write about walking through loss together when we haven't done so very much yet, I decided to forgo writing a letter and decided to point you over at Joy in this Journey, where couples are writing blog letters to each other.
We got the call today that we're accepted as candidates to the organization that we applied to to go overseas. It's been months of going through the application process, so knowing we're past that hurdle is a relief. Wahoo!
If any of you would like to be on our newsletter list, just let me know. Obviously there are personal details I don't put on the net, although you may get more emotional details here, actually.
Next step? Orientations and support-raising. I have NO idea how long this will take.At least we know we're moving forward.
