Our Wedding Vows: (written by us, read by Pastor Duane on February 6, 2011)
First and foremost, we intend to put Christ at the center of our relationship. We are sinners, we are selfish, that will not always be easy; but we’ve made a commitment to each other and to God, a commitment we cherish and will honor. If Christ is at the center of our relationship, we will be working each day to glorify God, in all that He has given us and with all that we will do. We realize that part of God’s beautiful system is that, if we are glorifying Him and finding our glory in Him, that brings a joy and a love to our lives and our relationship that is unmatched by any selfish desire.
Fast Forward 365 Days:
We’ve come to realize that marriage is the most beautiful, fun, and difficult gift we’ve ever been given. One truth we’ve both come to realize; there is no one else in the world we’d want to share that gift with! This year has been absolutely crazy in so many different wonderful and challenging ways, but we wouldn’t change a thing.
We celebrated last night with champagne (don’t worry, I just had a tiny bit), wonderful food, a view of our favorite city, and conversation that I’m confident led us both to grow as individuals and a couple.
