Washington DC Anniversary Session : Doug & Rhonda

Anniversary Session

March 24, 2020

From the couple, Doug & Rhonda “What we have is a 23 year-long and going strong love story. Despite plentiful and amazing moments of beauty and goodness, hardship has had its’ place in our story too … a child diagnosed with life-threatening cancer, another child with a soulmate lost to a car accident and yet another child tortured with thoughts of suicide … all during job losses and multiple moves and school changes. The good times are great but the bad times actually make the good times that much sweeter. We have learned that love isn’t just about a feeling or something you say, it’s about behavior and it’s a choice. It’s about choosing to love each other, being for one another and a choice to not quit each other. 

Love is not self-seeking …

Love gives the benefit of the doubt

Love does … and keeps doing

Love is being for one another and has each other’s back

Love doesn’t quit

Love is ‘boots on the ground’ in the midst of mighty life battles

Love doesn’t keep score but goes for the ‘win’ together

Love holds on to patience when it feels like there’s none left

Love is kind when it doesn’t feel deserved

Love gives even when you feel drained

Love hopes in seemingly hopeless situations

Love understands that rainy days produce rainbows and growth

Love looks forward with confident expectation

Love is the mundane of everyday

Love is also the occasional over the moon romantic surprises

Love is secure when everything goes wrong

Love is measured when everything goes right

Love celebrates and it comforts

… and we could go on and on …

1 Corinthians 13:13 1And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

One of our favorite songs says it best: 

‘There were times when it looked like nothing could save them’

‘And there were times when it looked like nothing could break them’

‘There’ll be a thousand moments for you to say “I told you”

And a million more for us to say “I love you”

‘Live every day hoping

That when we feel broken

Our scars make us golden

Still choose you and I’”
