Nicole Peacock  🌿blog coming soon! 🌿Isaiah 26:8

5 years ago today we were gearing up for our rehearsal dinner. Looking back on the last 5 years, while they bear joy and precious memories, they also bear scars of difficulty...scars that our God loves turning into gifts...scars that have allowed me to experience my husband's love in a very special and a very real way. On that beautiful Saturday evening in July, witnessed by our sweet family and friends, Jonathan promised before God to love me in sickness and in health, for better or for worse and I of course believed him with as much as I knew how! But over the last 5 years, I have seen with my own eyes that promise personified. I have seen him sleep cramped in hospital chairs, stay by my side while I puked my guts out in pain because my body wasn't working right, I have seen him be patient with my emotions and rawness infertility has brought, I have seen him love me at my best and love me at my worst. Because of these things, Jonathan's words, the promises, that he spoke that midsummers night have gone from my head to my heart in the last 5 years and THAT is the greatest 5 year anniversary gift I could ever ask for! I can't help but think that this is what happens with the Word of God when we encounter trials...His Word goes from our head to our heart! We listen to His words...His promises to us.. and we believe them with the best we know how, but it's when He WALKS with us through a desert...STAYS by our side and LOVES us in our sickness...gives us grace despite our rawness... loves us at our best and loves us at our worst. It's when He reveals His love and presence in the most extravagant way and in the most UNLIKELY circumstances...those moments leave us changed. We believe and treasure His Word and His promises in a whole new way when we have the (sometimes painful) privilege of seeing them in action! My husband is human and he isn't perfect, our marriage isn't perfect, our life isn't perfect, but I am forever grateful for what my Lord has taught me about Himself and HIS love through the love of this man❤

"His love has no limits, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known unto men; For out of His infinite riches in Jesus He giveth and giveth and giveth again." Annie J. Downs

was looking through pics on my camera today and found this. this is a little cedar planter box jonathan and I made for our apartment porch during our first year of marriage ❤😭 that little apartment was full of some sweet, sweet memories! walks around the lake, newlywed best friends who lived in a building on the other side of the complex, just a small simple space where we began learning how to love each other big and give big grace. there is sweetness to be soaked up in every single little season!

meet my brothers!! I knew I wanted to take some fun pics with them while they were in town to practice my "people shots" a bit. these turned out so fun!! miss these faces so much already❤

we have had so much good time with family this weekend! my mom and brothers are in town AND Jonathan's brother, our sister in love and cutie pants nephew came in for a few days!! it's been a great weekend celebrating this special holiday! 🇺🇸 📷: our bro @thebenpeacock !

happy 3rd of july, yall! 🇺🇸🍓

I sure do love my guy❤


" to You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, in You I trust." Psalm 25:1-2
Lift up my soul = long, desire, set the heart on, idiom for " I direct my desire" (ESV study Bible commentary)

Longing for Jesus to be Who my heart is SET ON and Who my main desire is directed towards. Not a baby, not status, not a following, not a perfect house, not material things, (the list goes on and on of things that distract me on a DAILY basis) but #JesusonlyJesus. "True worship is a VALUING or TREASURING of God above ALL things." -john piper

happy saturday morning, y'all!🌿❤

taking advantage of this rainy friday to do some learning, planning, and thinking about 2 things. 1) I'm trying to think through a blog (thank you to those who commented and gave me some feedback in my last post!). 2) I am wanting to learn and spend time practicing photography more and even play with videography a little. I am going through an everyday videography class right now on @studio_calico by @nicolevcole and y'all it is SO good! If you have any interest in learning simple videography I highly recommend this class! It is only $10 through the end of this month! Really excited to put it to use!!
