- Wedding: June 2013
Hi Bees 🙂
I know that we don’t a full-blown out theme on this but I’m trying to incorporate how God is writing our love story into our wedding and was wondering if anyone had any good ideas?
To make a long story short my FI and I met when we were like 14 and he liked me, I liked him and could actually see “forever” in his eyes — but that scared me and things happened (or didn’t happen I should say) and we sort of drifted apart for six years or so (– or rather he avoided me when he saw me holding another boy’s hand)…
And after a bad breakup with my ex, God gave me my “Philemon” promise – “Maybe we are separated for now, so that both of us can become better people, so that if we do find ourselves together again… it’ll be forever” – Philemon 12-16
I really didn’t understand that promise and just kept thinking I was hearing things. But I just kept hearing God teling me to just “Be still and know He is God” – Psalm 46:10 and all these other verses from the bible just kept on reinforcing me to keep hoping and to not doubt in God’s promises – because God has the power to fulfill all His promises. I even asked for more signs and got “no sign shall be given to you” – because basically He has already been telling me all the signs I needed to know and that I just had to basically BE STILL!
My church group was having a retreat one weekend, and I felt an urge to spam my entire email list of friends to go (even though year after year no one ever responded) but God nudged me to just email because someone was going to respond. I also heard that “the one” was going to be at that retreat. I pushed it aside thinking it was all in my head.
Well my soon-to-be FI actually ended up responding to the email and going to the retreat. And that’s how God brought us back together after being apart for how many years. We’re actually getting married where God brought us back together and it so happens to also fall on the same weekend as the retreat was – three years after the fact – which was not our intention… it kind of just fell into place that way 🙂
LOL after writing this all out I realized the story was already on my wedding blog (http://rklovestory.tumblr.com/lovestory) and I believe it’s actually much shorter!
I really do feel God has been writing and is still writing our love story and I feel so blessed that I want to incorporate somehow into the wedding… but I’m not sure how… I was going to have one of my BM or a VIP include the story in their speech, but was wondering what else I can do…
