How do I begin to formulate the words to describe the day I married my best friend, my biggest fan, my confidant, my miracle, my representation of God’s restoration of the goodness of His love?
The truth is, I can’t. It’s impossible. Only heaven holds the worlds that my heart carries for this day. I dreamed of it, waited for it, longed for it, and often begged God for it. But it was in the waiting I gain the appreciation of the magnitude it held. I could tell you a million stories about keys and “coincidences” that lead us together. I could tell you that 3 years before I met him God told me September 27th would be the date. I could tell you about the reflections of his goodness we saw in each other and how we asked God for confirmations and during the process and He gave them to us long before we knew each others names. We found what He had left for us all along the way to tell us… this is it…and we felt His eager anticipation of the Good HE had set aside for us in each other.
He pre-planned this day, and we meet Him there at the alter when His timeline met ours. We stood together in purity and love and exchanged the vows that still make me weep.
That day was filled with imperfections. It was filled with less than idealistic moments, less than traditional fairy tale details. It was filled with the exhale of two royals exhaling from the hectic planning, gardening, rushing, and to do lists. But even in those details He was there because in them we found each other in a new way. We learned how to be open. We learned how to work together, and though this video and these photos don’t show the journey to this day, you get to see the fruit of the process.
What a gift this man is. I love him more now then I did then. May our story impact yours….
