Our "Fountain" Vision

Brianna and I are getting married in 45 days. Over our engagement we have been thinking and talking about and praying about the vision we want to live with as a married couple.

Our desire is to share the love of Christ with others. We want to first start in our marriage - our first priority is to love each other with all of our hearts. I want to fill Brianna's heart with so much love that her heart overflows with so much love.

Our second dream is to love whatever children God chooses to bless us with. We want to pour love into the hearts of our children, until their hearts overflow with love.

Finally, we want to pour love and grace into the lives of everyone else that Father brings into our lives. We want to draw people to Christ by offering them His love, a love that treasures every single person, wherever they are at in life.

We call this vision our "fountain" vision. We want to love each other first, and pour so much love into each other that love overflows into the lives of our children, and love our children so much it overflows into the lives of all other relationships in our lives.
