Questions Answered - Part 4

Andrew/je/ski

Now say it all together really fast.

See, that wasn't so hard, now was it?!

I know all of you have been wondering how to say my last name. You've spent many sleepless nights considering this.



A few of you have asked about "Our" story. Our romance story. When my husband read that question he laughed and said...."tell 'um"!

But see, what you don't know is that my mom and mother-in-law read my blog. And my husband and I have a history together of about 8 years before we were married. And it started when we were 14.....so I may have to be brief with this one.

Here goes:

We met at 14.
I loved him immediately.
Told my Mom I'd marry him.
8 years later we were married.
The End.


Ahh Ha! You're not getting anything else out of me! Nice try.


But just look and see what beautiful blessings the Lord has given us! Static and all.


God's like that you know. He forgives and blesses despite all our 'static'. And for this, I am truly thankful.

What are you thankful for?

Wonderful love story. Short, sweet and to the point! And such cute staticky blessings! :)

Oh come on Nina, you could give a little more info than that can't you? We do have much to be thankful for dont we. Im thankful for my children, my wonderful husband who I pray for every day to be saved, my precious grand-children, my son-in-law,my family,my job.... oh my goodness it would take me a while to write everything I'm thankful for... I'm thankful the Lord put you in Portugal instead of Africia or India or Nepal.
Love you

Funny! Though some may disappointed with the short, sweet, to the point version, I love it! Some things don't need to be detailed for the whole world to read!

I'm thankful for a Godly husband with a sense of humor.

Tori said...

Very cute!!!
I'm sure that version of the story will be satisfactory for the Moms.

Thanks Mrs. Andrew-jet-ski, I was wondering that too. Love your new background.

The girls are too precious. I am thankful for my peeps and the fact that they are healthy. God is Great.

You kept it short and sweet Mrs Andrewjeski. Thanks for helping us pronounce the name. I suppose its Russian...that 's a question too.

Amrita said...

Mom, India would be good place too.There are many similarities between India and Portugal.

Dani Joy said...

JEJE...that´s so cute! I think it´s great that both moms follow your blog. ;) Someday maybe I will hear the rest of the story. We hope to pass by Portugal in April. Lord willing.

That's worse than a Reader's Digest Condensed version. No details whatsover! You're a tough nut to crack. Maybe we should hear your husband's side of the story.

Do you guys have dryer sheets over there? Just wondering...

I am thankful for Forgiveness too. That when we mess up God gives other´s grace to forgive us.

Maybe I know more than you give me credit for and maybe I am more forgiving than you think. I love you too much to hold any past indiscretions against you.

I am thankful for salvation by grace, my wonderful family and what else could anyone possibly need.

Well,
We know there's more...when your hubby says...Tell 'em! and that's all we get! You are hilarious! Even if that's it...it was fun to read the short story! Love the static cling!!!

Ha, ha ha, I can say that I remember driving around the block of Michael's house when we were kids and you saying, "That's where Michael lives... I love him... " I thought you were so weird :)
I guess I was too young to understand the whole love thing.
You do look good with all that weight loss. I"m jealous... I am curious about the similarities between India and Portugal. I guess I'll end up visiting both of them in my lifetime.
Love you,
Danielle
