Warning: It could get sappy....sorry (kind of)
This past weekend we were in Cincinnati celebrating the marriage of two friends. And what a beautiful weekend it was. There is truly something beautiful about marriage and love. It is really wonderful to spend time in the presence of it and celebrating what God has created it to be.
This weekend marks not only a significant event in the lives of our friends, but also in my own life. It is a weekend that changed my life in a way I never could imagine.
|The most beautiful blue eyes I've ever seen|
One year ago, this week, I went on my "official" first date with Jake. I had no idea at that time that that date would be so life changing. Now, before I say much more, let me say that I realize the future is in the hands of God and that is where it all stands. But I trust His faithfulness.
My relationship is truly a gift from God, because it if was up to me I wouldn't have taken the chance. But, I am so incredibly grateful that God is faithful in His promise that He has a plan for our lives and that He will provide in His timing. However, I am just in awe of how good He is and how He brings people into our lives.
One year ago today, my life changed in such a way that I could have never prepared for and its been the most incredibly beautiful ride. Its been a challenging year with a lot of changes; finishing grad school, moving, starting a new job, moving again, becoming a "big kid", immense life changes have all happened and those were just my life...not to mention Jake moving three times, two major certification tests, working in three different locations. It's been a lot of change.
Love is a beautiful thing and it is to be celebrated. I'm just so glad that we were created to share in this life because it makes the journey so much more enjoyable.
