Four days away from one month and one thing is true…I couldn’t get any bigger with anyone else beside of me.
Against All Odds - It really is a love story.
From it’s inception, my relationship with Diana has been nothing short of a miracle. For those of you who know our stories, I know you can attest to that. How I ended up with such an amazing girl is completely beyond me, and I have nothing but the amazing GRACE of God to look at and say, “THANK YOU!!!”
One of the biggest things that’s glued our relationship together is our strong desire to go against the odds, and if you know our stories, you understand why. At this point it’s not even an option. It’s just a part of our daily routines, and it’s not uncommon for us to text each other AAO whenever we run into a tough situation, no matter how big it may be. We know what that means, and along with the faithfulness of God, it gives us the strength to keep moving forward, together.
The reason this theme of Against All Odds is important to us is because it forces us to live our lives by faith, moving forward to the unknown, understanding that whatever happens, we win, and we win together.
The dreams that we have together are so special, and definitely worth fighting for. It’s hard to explain, but there’s this burning desire inside of both of us to forget the past, and be nothing but excited about the future. We have an opportunity to create a new future, and we’re not looking back. The other special thing is that we both know what we’ve been saved from. We’ve shared those stories with each other, we understand where we come from, and its only made us stronger. It’s hard to have a bad day with Diana by my side, but even when that bad day comes, it’s ten times better than what my best day could’ve been a few years ago had the Grace of God not stepped in and intervened, and for that I’m thankful. It’s perspective for me and for her, that no matter what, we have a lot to be thankful for and we’re not going to let the small things get in the way of what we are believing and fighting for.
So here I am, the morning of my wedding day, and I’m completely humbled and thankful. Never in a million years could I have guessed it could be this good. I’m also at peace. I’m at peace knowing that God has already gone before us and made a way. I’m at peace knowing that God has proven himself faithful time and time again, so I know He’ll help me lead this relationship the right way, and I’m at peace knowing that even though I can’t solve the puzzle of the future, I don’t need to.
When I see my bride walk down the aisle later tonight, it will be the most beautiful moment of my life.
It’s a love story, and we’re going against the odds. We don’t know what’s out there, or what’s waiting for us, but whatever it is, we’re going to find it. You can count on that.
