August 10! Today is a special day! The day we got married SIX years ago in Carrollton, Texas. It was hot, but I was so pumped to FINALLY marry this man God had so purposely set in my path. I planned the wedding myself, with my mom, PRE-Pinterest. Yep, I had to Google any ideas I wanted for my wedding.
It’s crazy to think how many memories we’ve created already as a married couple! Moved into a house together (first time living with one another). I got my first teaching job. We joined Fellowship Church. We’ve been on tons of vacations since then. Paid off our house. Ryan achieved college level officiating. We were blessed with a little boy who has really showed us what love is all about! My life long dream became reality as a stay at home mom. I started my own business. And many more memories…
You always hear people ask, “How do you know when they’re the one?” This was easy for me. He made me a better woman…a woman of God. I knew no matter what happened in our marriage, his foundation was ROCK solid in Christ. This gave me such a peace of mind because so many problems can be tackled when God is the center of your marriage. Marriage is tough…it’s a commitment. But I’m blessed to have a husband who will treat me well and father our children the most important way! I’m so undeserving of him! Thank you Lord for crossing our paths.
Three things I look back on and love about OUR marriage:
1. We waited to move in with one another…among other things
2. We paid off our house BEFORE children.
3. We gave ourselves time to be married before children.
Now our # 1 priority as a married couple is to show Beckham what a great marriage is! I believe that is the best thing we can do as parents. God’s relationship with the church is portrayed in a Godly marriage on Earth, so we have to show this to our children. I know we WILL mess up and regret things, but that’s life! I just pray God can give me strength and wisdom to be the best wife I can be. Lord knows I need help! Lol (is that ok to use in a blog post?). A little trip down memory lane…
