Tomorrow.. I marry my best friend..

This truly is a day that I never thought I’d get to experience..

I had been a part of all my close girlfriends and family weddings.. I have seen their anxiety.. I have seen their joy.. I had seen the excitement.. I have shared in their tears.. I had always wanted that for myself.. but the years went by and I felt that I never came close..

Joe came into my life around the time that I began to accept that the married life was most likely not for me.. he had come into myself when I finally resigned to finding my “one true love.”

Meeting him showed me that there was still a chance for me to find my life long partner.. he showed me how to be taken care of.. as opposed to the one always being the care taker.. he showed me how to be loved.. and not just be the one to love..

He has become my best friend.. my number one confidant.. and my biggest supporter.. in turn..  I have become his, as well..

I’m so blessed that the Lord has brought us together.. to nurture each others lives.. to erase the hurts in our pasts.. to enrich our presents.. and to embrace our future..

I can’t wait to become his wife.. I can’t wait to share a lifetime with him.. God has truly blessed us..

At this point.. every little detail has been taken care of.. all we have to do is ship everything off to the hotel.. hand off the reception items to the hotel coordinator.. do our wedding rehearsal.. then sleep away the final night of “single-ness..”

I pray that everything will go smoothly.. I pray that our lives together will continue to be filled with joy and happiness.. I pray that all the hard work of these past 10 months will bring a beautiful celebration of the sacrament of marriage to fruition.. I pray that everyone has a great time.. I pray that all arrive safe to and from our wedding..

I pray I can make it through the ceremony without my fake lashes falling out from crying so much!!!

There are times in our lives that prayer and our faith in God are the only things that can keep us going..

I believe that all that I have achieved would not be possible if I didn’t trust in the Lord and pray for the success and guidance I have gotten from Him. 

There have been many times in my life that I have wondered why I was put here and what my purpose is.. and why I have been brought in the directions that I have been brought to..

There are many instances where I’ve questioned why I had to go through a certain ordeal.. or why I don’t have what others have.. or why other people seem to have the life that I’ve always wanted..

Why do they get to live the way I’ve wanted to live.. and they don’t go to Church ever week.. they don’t practice a religion.. they don’t have a strong faith in God.. why do they get the life that I want?

How is that even fair?

I’ve found myself questioning God over and over again about that..

But what I WANT.. may not necessarily be what I NEED.. what I want may be detrimental to my life.. or may steer me in the wrong direction in the long run.. in any case.. He knows what’s best.. even if it’s something I didn’t want.. He knows what I need..

I’m being looked out for.. and that’s the consolation I need to know that I am being taken care of.. that I am loved and that I am never going to be given something that I can’t handle..

So.. take some time out of your day.. thank God for all that He has given you.. a simple prayer of thanks.. because He really is just a prayer away..
