Our Marriage Mission

Well, here it is – my first blog post on A Pair of Pomeroys! My bride does an incredible job communicating and keeping everyone informed of the latest happenings. I thought it might be my turn to take a crack at writing. So please bear with me as I cover the woman I love with uplifting words and hope for our future…

As I’m sure you know, we are now coming up on our two-year anniversary and I have had plenty of time to reflect on the past years as well as look forward to the future. I have watched Blair grow into a confident, loving, respectful, woman of God with incredible integrity and desire for God’s will be done. I am blown away whenever I think about how blessed I truly am. She is a constant reminder of God’s great beauty and grace. I have never met a woman before Blair that made me want to be better, every day.  It’s safe to say that after God, she is my inspiration. The reason I do what I do. I used to think I could do it all on my own, but now I know I couldn’t have been more wrong.

We believe every marriage must have a mission. If marriage is about two becoming one, then the mission is to do something far greater than a single individual could ever imagine, let alone accomplish. It has taken some time to figure it out, but we know the mission for our marriage is simple: Leave a legacy.

Think about that… It’s a monumental task that we have been given. The stakes are too high to not take this chance seriously. Today. For me, A Pair of Pomeroys is a physical representation of our marriage and how we have made ourselves available to build into the lives of other couples and families. In many ways this is a great step of courage for our marriage. We have opened up an outlet where the talents that God has given us can flow out and into the lives of others It is an area we have wholly given to God for him to make into whatever he wants. For Blair and I, it was a great step of faith. One that I know will be used for His kingdom. We seek to build into the lives of all around us and later on, our children. But that comes later…

I said all of that to say – I am so thrilled to be entering into our third year of marriage and I know we will be reaching new heights and accomplishing things we never thought we could. The third year will be the year Blair turns from student to teacher (literally) when she graduates. We will be looking for opportunities to move wherever God wants us and we have faith that doors will be opened as we receive a glimpse of His plan. He will put us where we can accomplish our mission, because it’s not about us. It’s about Him!

Thanks for reading!

One thought on “Our Marriage Mission

  1. Well said, Matt. Your thoughts toward Blair mirror what my thoughts toward Belinda were… and still are after celebrating our 25th anniversary earlier this summer! Just keep God in your thoughts all along the way, no matter what obstacles you may run into along the way, and you will be sure to find that the path you choose will ultimately turn out to be the “right” path as you make your way through this crazy life.

    Regards,
