The day I married my best friend. A day I will never forget. The day I vowed my life to one man forever in front of God, family, and friends. One of the best days of my life.
It was an absolute dream. A dream that I will replay for the rest of my life.
I get to spend the rest of my life with the person that makes me so incredibly happy. It is a crazy feeling, a good crazy. Since getting married I call him “husband” any chance I get, which causes us to get weird looks when we are in public (oops). I just feel like I am on cloud 9 and it is a feeling I cannot describe. I am married to my best friend. I am a wife. It has brought a totally new level of euphoria into my life. I love being a wife, I love being his wife. I hope and pray that everyone gets to feel this kind of love in their life. Marriage is beautiful. Vowing to spend the rest of your life with one person is beautiful. I want everyone to experience this kind of beautiful reality.
Our wedding was just the beginning of our journey together as a married couple. It was such a beautiful beginning. I wouldn’t change a thing about the entire day. It was so perfect, care-free, and full of God’s presence. I’ll never forget the moment I saw Joe as I walked through the church doors. Every single jitter and nerve completely disappeared; and so did the guests. I can honestly say that I do not remember seeing anyone except Joe, it was like instant tunnel vision. I saw my future right in front of me and nothing else mattered in that moment. It was like time stood still. God’s plan for my life was unfolding before my eyes and it was an incredibly comforting feeling. I knew that everything that I have been through in life was leading up to that moment. Marriage is a start of new a chapter in life and I am so excited to start this adventure with Joe.
The pastor that officiated our ceremony used a great analogy that included a clothes hanger. He said that Joe and I are the bottom two corners of the hanger and God is the hook at the top. As we work on strengthening our own relationships with God it will also bring us closer together. Our marriage will survive anything if we keep God at the center. God is within our marriage and will use life’s trials and triumphs to keep us close. God will protect us and our marriage.
2018 has just started and I am excited to see what this year has in store for Joe, me, and our life together.
