Today Matt and I celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. Wow- what a year! When I think back on our lives one year from today, I get teary-eyed. One year ago today, I was in graduate school, working, planning a wedding, and volunteering my time (insert hardy laugh here) at my internship. Matt and I had just moved in together after purchasing our new home, and were searching desperately for rental tenants.
Many nights leading up the wedding I spent on my knees praying over our current situation, and over our future together. What a difference one year makes! While this year has had its challenges, the highs soar above the lows. The lows have brought us closer, and I hope they always will. I am so excited about our second year of marriage and all that is in store for us. I love my groom!
As I’m reminiscing, I will indulge and share some of our wedding photos.
Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous; love is never
boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take
offense, and is not resentful.
Love take no pleasure in other people’s sins but delights in the truth;
it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.
Love does not come to an end. But if there are gifts of prophecy,
the time will come when they must fail; or the gift of languages, it will not continue for ever;
and knowledge-for this, too, the time will come when it must fail.
For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophesying is imperfect;
but once perfection comes, all imperfect things will disappear.
When I was a child, I used to talk like a child, and think like a child,
and argue like a child, but now I am a man, all childish ways are put behind me.
Now we are seeing a dim reflection in a mirror;
but then we shall be seeing face to face.
The knowledge that I have now is imperfect;
but then I shall know as fully as I am known.
In short, there are three things that last; faith, hope and love and the greatest of these is love.
