these are a few of my favorite things

#1) God.  I believe this goes without saying, but what I am most thankful for about my God is that I can have a personal relationship with Him.  He is perfect and the one I can trust completely.

#2) Family.  My family structure has changed a bit in the past few months.  I got married and my husband and I became a family.  I am thankful for him more then he, or I, will ever know.  I grew up in a wonderful family as well where my parents loved me, and each other.  I have three siblings who are some of my best friends.  Also through marriage, I gained my husband's family!

birthday, baking, blessing

I love our little family of two.  Just yesterday I was thinking about how much I love coming home from work.  Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but when my husband is at home waiting for me, he trumps my students.  He does so well on keeping a close eye on the time, and an ear to the door, in order to welcome me home and opening the door for me.  I am so blessed to be married to this man.

Name Change

My name has changed, and so has my blog name.  I thoroughly enjoyed carrying my maiden name for the first twenty-one years of my life.  My family has made it a good name, and one with heritage.  Upon marriage though, I was proud to change my name to now hold my husband's last name.  What a joy that is.  Being a teacher, I get to hear my name numerous times each day...and I love it!  A name change offers refreshment and a new light to things.  It marks a something new.

Since marrying my sweetheart, we have become one, that is biblical.  We have enjoyed the beginning of blending our lives together and making new traditions for our new family.  It is fun learning how the other was raised, and then together deciding on how things will be done in our home.  We most certainly have a conglomeration from his home, my home, and from the homes of various families who have impacted our lives.  It is an adventure we are thoroughly enjoying.

With this, the blog will take a slight change.  This is no longer a blog about my life, but about our life.  With that, I am changing the title of this blog from "Rebekah's Blog" to "Our Little Family".  Even though there are only two of us, we are a new family now.  The word family is such a sweet word and I enjoy using it.  I try to refrain from overusing the word "couple", because while we are that, we are a family as well.  In future years, we hope to watch our little family grow, but for now, we are a little family.

We want this blog to be a journal and sharing of the goodness of God!  Our meeting is evidence of God's goodness.  Our relationship throughout the years is proof of God's goodness.  Our engagement is a showing of God's goodness, and finally our marriage screams God's goodness on our lives.  We can't contain our happiness as we bask in His goodness.  Therefore, we must vent and share the fun happenings we are experiencing on our walk with our Savior.  While I will still be the primary blogger, our goal is to draw your attention not only to His goodness in our life, but His workings of goodness in your life as well.  Bask in it!

So without further husband and I share our lives with you as we thank God for His goodness!
