New Beginnings...

So, I've decided now is the time to start a blog. It's something I've always wanted to do, but never had time, or inspiration. I'm not saying that I now have either one, but you have to start somewhere, right? And when in life will I ever have any more time than now?

Resolved to Worship. It's something I've been thinking about a lot in the last year or so. How do we worship? It is what we were created we could return praise and worship, honour and glory to our Maker.  It's something I want to learn to integrate into my every day life. In the past I would always think that in order to worship, you have to be this perfect someone, who stops what they're doing often to worship. Yes, I think it is important to set time aside just for worship, but it's also something we can do throughout our everyday lives. It's actually a way of life. Living a life of thankfulness and gratitude is a way of worship, seeing the beauty in the small things, in the daily grind, and to actually think about Who sends all these little and big  blessings our way, and thanking Him. I guess I'm still sorting it out, and trying to work it into my heart and head, so it will come more naturally. Worshiping out of awe reverence and awe. I guess you could say that some of these thoughts is where I got my blog title from. This is what I am... Resolved to Worship our Creator God until my dying day.

This is a place I want to be able to publicly share our blessings..put into the archives pictures and thoughts. and remember. To be able to look back and see where He has brought us. Also, I see this as a place where my far-away family and friends to keep up a bit on our lives here in Canada.
So, here we go. Please bear with me as I figure out how it works, and actually get it set up the way I want.

I'd like to start with documenting some of the highlights from the last year. I think it's safe to say that I've experienced some of the biggest changes of  my life in the past year.

On April 28, 2012 I married Graham Lichti, the love of my life.

I very happily  pledged my life to him for "forever". This was the best day of my life. It was beautiful and perfect in so many ways.. the sun was shinning, tree's were that fresh Spring green, hearts were full of joy, and it was so sacred and Holy. It was a day I shall always remember. The past year of my life with him has been my best one yet. He's so incredibly good! 

My dear and precious family. So sad to be living so far away from them...but I'm happy to be where God has called me to. 

I loved this kissing ball. It added a perfect touch to the bridal table. I don't think there was anything I would want to change about that table. It turned out just like I had hoped.

I simply loved the flowers. My cousin did an incredible job!

I am so thankful to our Father for leading us together.. for giving us a perfect day. . Far beyond what I could even ask or think. We were able to go to the coast for pictures after we were done in Corvallis. Loved some of the shots our photographer got! Such a happy day...and such a perfect way for it to end.
