I just re-watched the final episode of The Office U.S. while waiting to be called on set and OMG I forgot how sweet it was!? Also I will always aspire to be as extra in my romantic gestures as Jim was. And yes, this pic is totally unrelated, I just really like it ok? #ramblepost#theoffice#nostalgia#jimandpam#unrelatedpic
This photo sums it all up. We’ve been asked by many of our younger friends how we knew this was it, that Albert or I was “the one.” Sacrificial love. That’s how.
This past week Albert chose to stay home from a mission trip with students we dearly love. He was the only staff person not to go, and I knew he missed our people. I missed our people, our church family. But after 4 long hour weeks with no weekends and one away, I was frazzled without my teammate at home, and he chose to put our family first.
Marriage isn’t a fairytale. It sure has sweet moments which we savor and take what we call a “memory photo”... and sometimes a real one too. We love jokes, laughs, rest, and a good prank. But we also get our feelings hurt, fight, cry, and struggle to find words. Sometimes there are no words. We just hold hands.
It’s messy. It’s fun. It’s beautiful. It’s sacred. Its saying, “I’m sorry.” It’s sacrificial love. It’s dying to self daily for Jesus first, and then loving each other out of that. That’s how I knew, how we KNOW, this is forever.
Thank you, Albert, for being the Jim Halpert to my Pam Beesly (even though we don’t work together anymore). I see you + the sacrifices you made this week, the sacrifices you make everyday. Thank you for leading me back to Jesus in it all. Much respect.
