Bride and Groom Thoughts for
I believed that my chance for
getting married had passed me by.
I had immersed myself in my career
after so many relationships had just not worked out.
I went to wedding after wedding,
but not mine.
I had dreams at night of my
husband and our awesome life together.
I'd wake up in the morning though,
and the bliss of that perfect union would fade by mid-day.
I am so glad I waited for the
right one and did not settle.
Many friends of mine thought it
would never happen, they said I was so picky because I always said no to the men that asked me to marry them.
I knew in my heart that they were
not the one and I figured, why say yes and then get a
I kept hope in my heart even when
there was no reason for it to be there.
I guess my faith was the thing
that got me through, always knowing someone who was so perfect for me was out there. God's timetable, not mine though!
I came from a failed marriage
where my wife left me.
I wasn’t the most optimistic man
and I probably only had a mustard seed worth of hope, yet since I was a boy, I’d always believed there was a
perfect soul mate out there somewhere for me.
I really needed that to be true,
that she was really out there waiting…somewhere, somehow.
I had no idea who or where she
was, so I just had to be open and trust that I would find her or she would find me, and she did.
What a blessing that was! The absolute love of my life
walking in to my life, just like a gift.
She is so perfect for me;
beautiful, intelligent, funny, talented…I suppose every moment of the wait was worth it, no matter how much it hurt
at the time. I read in what she wrote, that she said that faith was the thing that got her through. For me, I
encountered so many roadblocks that it seemed more like bulldog tenacity, but when it all comes down to it, it’s
faith that keeps us tenacious.
