Although it’s been over a month since we would have gotten married, I still feel the hurt and loneliness creep up on me when I see couples getting married or are physically together. Not only is the transition from fiance to girlfriend difficult enough, but I still continue to struggle with the miles that separate us. Most of all, my heart is heavy with the thought that you might not ever see the truth. I pray ever so earnestly that God will lead you to it, but know that His will may be different than ours. I have never felt so much pain before now, but I also have never loved you in this capacity. Somehow this trial we’ve gone through has refined our love for each other as we desire more of Christ each and every day. I wouldn’t trade anything for our relationship, even when we’re facing the biggest obstacle ever. When this season is over and if we’re still in tact, we’ll be able to confidently tackle any issue, knowing that we’ve already overcome the hardest one.
Why can’t the government just get its fat nose out of marriage? First of all, marriage is a religious covenant between a man and a woman. Just because the government decides to change the meaning of it all of a sudden people think that it’s different. No, things don’t work that way. I thought there was supposed to be a separation of church and state? If so, why has the government ever been involved in the first place? There should just be civil unions endorsed by the government and marriage should ultimately be defined by churches, since marriage is religious. Ugh ugh ughhhh.
I want to love my husband the way the church loves God <3
My Mommom and Poppop’s wedding. I hope my marriage can be as beautiful as theirs was. They were married for 56 years when my Poppop passed away in 2011. <3
Being opposed to gay “marriage” is not being a bigot. Something already put into place by God cannot be redefined. If people wanting these “equal rights” were Christians and knowledgeable of the scripture in the New Testament, they would realize that a marriage is a union between a man and a woman. One cannot be non-religious and expect to have a union that God doesn’t even condone. Marriage is a sacred and very spiritual partnership to Christians. Society’s word is ever-changing, but God’s word is everlasting.
I’m getting married in practically 3 months….ohhhh I’m in a glass case of emotion!
Every day I can’t help but thank God for blessing me with such a respectful, kind, patient, and compassionate man. We complement each other perfectly. I can’t believe I get to spend the rest of my life with him in just a few months. Wow, I just feel so blessed. Thank you so much Jesus.
So my fiance and I have decided that we are going to use Natural Family Planning when we get married. I told my mom about our decision and she said something along the lines of “well…what happens if you get pregnant right off the bat? You want to be able to enjoy some alone time together before you have kids.” I told her that we just couldn’t justify using contraception and that we would pay close attention to my cycle so that we will know when to abstain. Then my mom had concerns about us depriving ourselves of sex because it is mentioned in the bible that a married couple shouldn’t deprive themselves. However, that scripture says unless a couple agrees upon it for a period. I don’t know, many people I’ve discussed this with seem to be leery of the thought of me using Natural Family Planning. They think I’m going to be the next Michelle Duggar. What they don’t realize is Natural Family Planning is effective if followed closely. Plus, what does it matter anyway if have a ton of kids? If I’m trusting God with this decision, I know he will be doing His will in my life. That is what the purpose of marriage is. To carry out God’s will and glorify Him. It still makes me a bit nervous to think that I could have a child in the beginning of my marriage, but I’m not closing off that option. God ultimately knows what is best for us, even if it might not seem like it to us.
I have a feeling my boyfriend’s going to propose to me next week when I fly out to see him…we don’t have many opportunities to see each other and he’s told me he wants to do it soon. I wish it didn’t seem so obvious cause I’ve always wanted it to be a surprise, but it’s hard to when we’ve talked about marriage for a long while now. It will still be exciting though! Hopefully he won’t spend a lot of money on the ring. That’s not what’s important to me and I don’t want flashy jewelry.
So the other day I was talking about how cool it would be to have a Willy Wonka themed wedding. I know I’d probably never do it, but seriously, that would be amazingggg! Golden tickets and chocolate and candy and the music and pure happiness. It relates to the concept of being in love and the journey of marriage.
