The Greatest Moment of My Life

The Greatest Day of My Life

 April 25, 2015

When I walked down the aisle and into a room

and the Dr. asked, "Do you know who this is?" 

My love smiled and said, "I do, that's Mary and she is my wife."

We have been newlyweds ever since. 

The newness of our relationship is back. The love only newlyweds share but with a deeper intimacy that only time could allow. 

Newlyweds have the joy of each other. 

Newlyweds have nothing in between them. 

Newlyweds don't let kids, schedules, work, laundry, cooking, cleaning, yard, responsibilities or sleep get between them. 

(Hey Captain Morgan, I see you)

The only thing between us right now is Jesus and he is pulling us closer together than we have ever been. 
(only the holy spirit could do that and pull my veil to the furthest limits from my head)

God has done wonderful things this week. I'd do them all again to realize not only my love for my husband but the love and power of God. 

He is Good. 

 He is powerful. 

He wants everyone. 

We all have the opportunity to experience His Love and to obtain His Peace. 

 He has written our story long before we were born and long before we were believers. 

As beautiful as these pictures are they don't compare to what God has prepared and planned. I want the world to experience the Joy that Jesus has brought into our lives. 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. 
Proverbs 3:5-6

God is bigger than this and Jesus Can Fix-It.

So beautiful. So true. We serve an awesome God!


Only God could pour such beautiful thoughts into your pretty head, Mary! God has chosen you and Jonathan for a difficult path because He knew you would be faithful to glorify him in this! My mother's heart is overflowing as God is manifesting himself through your life in a devastating situation. Thank you for trusting and thank you for being obedient!!

My dear Mary, your words have truly touched me this week. As a new Christian, I've spent the past two years learning to walk with my Lord. To see your praise, your peace, and your has made me cry to witness His glory in your families life. And it gives me just one more assurance that He will indeed make my path straight! I love you and your sweet family!! My prayers are still with you...Rena

All of your wedding photos are lovely. There is, however, 1 that stood out from the rest the minute I saw it. It's the 1 where Jonathan is standing on the steps of the church looking lovingly at you holding your bouquet in the walkway. You have such a beautiful smile on your face and the look in Jonathan's eyes as he gazes at you, clearly shows the joy he feels as you two begin your life as one in the eyes of God. Please know your family is in my prayers. And please accept my gratitude for sharing your walk with Christ so I too may be blessed by your faith and trust in our Heavenly Father. His strength shines brightly through your love.
