Year Four

By Alexis Clement

Year Four

Me and Cars have been married for FOUR years this year. Isn’t that insane?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I love looking back at old photos and seeing how in love we were without even knowing all of the happiness, life, trials, joy, adventures, and LOVE that was ahead for us.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We’ve known each other for 10 years this year. We met when I was 17 and he was 15. I had seen him at school & thought he was a hottie but it ended there since he was two years younger 😂 Carson reached out to me on Facebook and we basically never stopped talking after that day. Including Skyping until 2 or 3 in the morning for years. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I remember trying to not take it serious, or consider us dating because it would never work out anyways with our ages. By the time I graduated, he graduated, and then served a mission it would be five years & I thought for SURE I would be married 😂 But as always, God has a way of making things work out for the best. I went to college, dated other people, he lived up high school, then the mission age changed and both of us served missions. The 5 year gap turned into a 4 year gap & more than half of it was while both serving missions. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We didn’t date or even write too much as missionaries but I still consider those years some of the most influential in our relationship. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
God’s timing truly is perfect and meant to bless each of us. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“How great reason have we to rejoice; for could we have supposed when we started . . . that God would have granted unto us such great blessings?”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I could have never of supposed when me and Cars first met 10 years ago, the great blessings that God had in store for us. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I feel completely indebted to Heavenly Father for the gift he has given me being married to Carson. My life is so full because of him ❤️ ⁣

With Love,

Lex
