the story of us

I’ve been a walking heartache; I’ve made a mess of me. The person that I’ve been lately ain’t who I wanna be. But you stay here right beside me, watch as the storm goes through, and I need you.

I met my husband during my senior year of college. We were set up on a blind date, and both of us wanted to back out. In fact, I babysat the night of our first date and told the parents not to rush home. They didn't listen, and in fact, they came to our wedding 10 months later. This is our story. Except, really, our story isn't ours at all. It's God's story, and we are just blessed enough to be characters in it. If it weren't for Him, we wouldn't be here. If it weren't for Him, we wouldn't have made it.

College Date Night

"Ultimately there comes a time when a decision must be made. Ultimately two people who love each other must ask themselves how much they hope for as their love grows and deepens, and how much risk they are willing to take. It is indeed a fearful gamble. Because it is the nature of love to create, a marriage itself is something, which has to be created. To marry is the biggest risk in human relations that a person can take. If we commit ourselves to one person for life this is not, as many people think, a rejection of freedom; rather it demands the courage to move into all the risks of freedom, and the risk of love which is permanent; into that love which is not possession, but participation. It takes a lifetime to learn another person. When love is not possession, but participation, then it is part of that co-creation which is our human calling." The Irrational Season by Madeline L'Engle

Our Wedding Day

 On my own I’m only half of what I could be. I can’t do without you. We are stitched together, and what love has tethered, I pray we never undo. God gave me you for the ups and downs. God gave me you for the days of doubt. (dave barnes - god gave me you)
