I am participating in the Completing him challenge from the Women Living Well blog. Each week we are given something to do on our blog to grow our marriage. I am a week behind, but better late than never. I have had VBS and Weeblos camp (that's a whole other blog...soon) the last two weeks...but I'm back and ready to go...
I am on the week where we are to post pictures and describe our wedding story. So here it goes...
So after Jayson asks me to marry him and of course I said yes, we decide on a fall wedding. We were married October 16, 1999. Yea...right before Y2K! It was such a great date.
We got married at Little Hope Baptist Church in Canton...I know the name is crazy "Little Hope", but I can tell you that we both had great hope...and have now been married for 10 years.
My bridesmaids were Jayson's twin sisters, Malissa and Leslie,my friend Shanna, and my 8 month pregnant cousin, Jennifer! Jayson's groomsmen were some of his high school friends...including one that is like his brother who we call Swanny! (Swanny is in the Air Force and was secretly flown in to be in the wedding party) Jayson had no idea...that was fun!
The most stressful part of our wedding was when one of his groomsmen was like 30 minutes late and the wedding was about to begin and he was still not there...my wedding coordinator lady wanted to go without him, Jayson did not and all I was saying was do whatever Jayson wants to do.
But, the messages from me to him were getting all confused...kind of like when you were a kid and played the game telephone and by the time the message got around the circle it was a total different message...like that...but he finally got there and the wedding was perfect...to me anyway!
Here we are lighting the unity candle:
I truly feel it is God's plan for us to be united here on earth. We are currently going through major God changes and are growing everyday together in Christ. I feel like God has been in our marriage from the beginning but had to prepare our hearts for what is about to happen in our lives. We are ready to give it all for Him and we are excited to see what the next 10 years hold for us, our children, and our journey with God!
I am married to my best friend, Jayson. We have been married for almost 12 years. We have two beautiful children, Cameron (11), and Kennedy (9). We are a typical family of four loving God and enjoying this life together. We pray God uses us here to do His works in a radical way.
