What Candace has learned...

Meet Candace...
I've known Candace for only a few months but it's been one of those friendships that feels like it's been forever.  Matt and I met Candace and Dustin at church and we all joined a small group bible study together.  They are the most laid back, coolest and kindest people in the world and would probably live on a boat somewhere in the ocean if possible.  I have been inspired, challenged and encouraged by both of them and I am honored to share her with you all.  Here ya go...

so cute i know.
 
Almost two years ago today, I walked down the aisle and said “I do” to my best friend and love of my life.  After almost seven years of dating, we were on top of the world and ready to begin “life” together. These past two years have been such an amazing journey. When Denise asked me to share what I have learned since I got married, it was pretty easy to name a few on the top of the list.
First of all, I’ve learned that God must be the center of a marriage. Since joining a small group at our church, we have both felt our relationship grow in unimaginable ways. Our marriage went from a great marriage to an amazing GODLY marriage. We walk by faith and trust that God has awesome plans for our life together. I have also learned that men and women are very different creatures. We think differently, we express ourselves differently, we prioritize differently, and the list goes on and on.  With these differences, Dustin and I have learned to work as a team and balance out our strengths and be understanding of each other and our little stressors in life. On a final note, I have learned the importance of spending time together and doing things that we both enjoy. Nothing is better than spending a day out on the boat fishing or diving with my hubby or even a night of shooting basketball. Time together is the best time of all. I never knew that marriage would be so easy. I feel so blessed to wake up every morning beside of the most handsome, caring, compassionate, and understanding man.  Life is good.
