Ruth’s Memoir Monday: Footprints in the Sand.

A week ago, I participated in a scrapbook challenge to document a part of my wedding that has yet to be recorded.  I lifted a line from a song sung during the ceremony and then reflected on it in the journaling below the photo.

The journaling (06/09):  Remember these words from “Where Our Road Leads” sung during our wedding?  Ten years ago I would have never guessed the footprints we would be leaving.  Footprints in our family and our community and our professional worlds.  I would have never guessed this would be the path our lives would forge.  And yet, it is so much better than I ever could have imagined.  This thing about traveling together, allowing the Lord to lead us, has ended up being an absolutely amazing adventure.  I’m so glad to be on it with you.
