to try to put into words my joy and love for this couple would make me sound like a fool.
if shakespeare grappled to capture the grandeur of love into words, who am i to try?
it’s just not possible.
and i think that’s how the best things in life were meant to be: indescribable.
and that’s how i feel about this girl marrying this boy.
she’s so lovely.
and he only makes her loveliness more lovely.
i love her with all my heart. and now i love him, too. and i love them.
their story is filled with God’s intimacy and grace.
from the moment they met to the moment brent proposed to the moment rachael will become his wife to the infinite moments that will make up their forever, God has written such an incredible story for these two.
all because He loves them.
what a beautiful story of Love.
i see your smile and it’s sweeter, after all that i’ve been through.
and when we laugh, i get a glimpse of forever and i praise God that i found you.
and anytime someone asks me how it all unfolded,
i’ll tell them such incredible chances make for a marvelous love.
just like the sun lights up the moon, this love is a reflection of more than just me and you.
our lives were less than ordinary.
and while i couldn’t see past tomorrow, God was making history.
oh my, what a beautiful story of love.
unexpected mercy is the greatest thing to find when you’ve been broken many times.
my soul found joy and for the first time in a while i felt like singing.
oh my, what a beautiful story of Love.
