Today my husband Charles (or Chaut as most of you know him) celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. Anniversaries are a beautiful combination of memories, dreams, and changes.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 (ESV)

Every season of life that we go through is beautiful in its own way. From childhood and innocence to youth and abundant awkwardness; singleness to marriage and having a family; joining (and surviving) the workforce; becoming a grandparent and enjoying retirement. Sometimes we are able to soak up and savor the beauty as we experience the season other times we cannot see the beauty until the season has passed. Our comfort comes from knowing that no matter what season we are in, God has prepared it for us.
