“I can’t remember if it was John Lennon or me who said it, but theres this quote… all you need is love.” -Ben Nemtin <3
I didn’t notice You were standing here
I didn’t know that
That was You holding me
I didn’t notice You were cry’n too
I didn’t know that
That was You washing my feet

Today, well now yesterday I suppose, I had the honor of being included in the most beautiful wedding I could have ever imagined. Their story truly is a fairy tail written and directed by the Lord. They have been blessed to have the kind of relationship that all girls dream of one day having. I always hoped that I would have one of those “high school sweetheart” kind of stories. Clearly that was not the plan that God had for me though. Alexia and Andrew have provided a clear example of what a godly relationship should look like. Through the celebration of their marriage God was truly honored. In our society when divorce is so prevalent it is extremely refreshing to see a relationship where Christ is the center. Marriage, when done correctly, is supposed to be a picture of Christ and his bride, the Church. I can’t wait for the day when I get to marry the man God has for me.
I am so thankful for the girls that I have stayed close with from high school. If I were able to do those four years over again there is so much that I would do differently. But… you shouldn’t really think like that I guess. Yeah, I spent way too much time trying to gain the approval of people I will never talk to again. Also, I did not spend enough time hanging out with the people who have really come to matter in my life.
Alexia and Andrews wedding was also so special because I have been able to watch it progress over the past five or so years. I was able to watch their love grow from the very beginning until today, their wedding day. They have gone through excruciatingly difficult trials but by God’s grace they have made it through. When my other friends get married I have no doubt that their weddings will also be beautiful. However, it will be near impossible for anyone’s to come near the specialness of Alexia and Andrew’s day.
<3 to the happy couple! I plan go model my future relationship after yours…
