My husband and I became friends when I was in the 9th grade and he was a senior. I knew right away that he would always have my heart, but I had to learn a very tough lesson in patience as I waited a few years for him to realize that I was THE ONE for him!
Twelve years ago today I married the man of my dreams. We have grown closer than I ever imagined was possible, just like God intended. Our hearts and souls are knit forever, and we’ve been blessed beyond measure.
Today I was reflecting on our wedding day, all the butterflies and attention to last-minute details. I arrived at the church building a couple of hours before the ceremony and sat alone in the quiet auditorium. A sweet peace that I can’t explain came over me, and I could feel God’s arms around me as all the jitters just melted away.
This first picture is of me getting ready in the “bride’s room” at the church building. The second picture is of me and my flower girl, Savannah. She grew up and married our ring bearer (I’m serious!) and gave birth to a baby girl just a few weeks ago.
Such wonderful memories! What a sweet story. I, too, felt the jitters melt away as I entered the church and took one look at my beloved waiting for me at the front of the church.
How neat about the flower girl and ring bearer!

Happy Anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. C! God bless you in the years to come.
I did the same thing the day of my wedding. I just needed that quiet time in that huge sanctuary to gather my wits and catch my breath. Thanks for bringing back the memories. – Alesha
