Our Wedding Day

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. My life will never be the same. I have left my home with my family and have gone on to a home with my husband. Today is my dream come true. Like most little girls, I dreamed of my wedding day. I had a handsome prince charming and we were wed by the sea with our bare feet in the sand. Today that dream is a reality. I can't believe it. I am trying desperately to drink up every second of this day. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is the man that God created me to spend my life with. Brandon is everything and more than I could have ever dreamed of having in a husband. I feel tremendously blessed that I have been placed with my soul mate so early in life. Today is perfection. I am completely overjoyed. This entire experience has been amazing and I will cherish this day for the rest of my life.
Dear God, I thank you for this day, your beautiful creation and the perfect weather. Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. You have provided me with a loving family to care for me and mold me into the person I am today. Thank you for that. Thank you for choosing such a magnificent man for me to spend the rest of my life with. He is more than I could have ever dreamed of having in a partner. I pray that you would always watch over us and guide us in the life we will make together. Help us to lean on You in all our ways. Give us the strength to overcome spiritual warfare and temptation and to turn to You when we don't know the way. Teach us to love like You love and to always be patient, kind, and encouraging to one another. Help us to keep no record of wrongs and to lose our pride. Give us the tools that we need to become parents someday who can provide a sound spiritual example for our children. Help us to build you into the foundation and walls of our home and recognize that everything we have is through You. Give us a solid church family and friends with whom we can grow in Your name. Help our marriage to be strong and endure the test of time and protect us. Never let us forget how sacred the bond between a husband and a wife is, for there is none like it. Help me to be a submissive wife to the spiritual leader of our house. Give Brandon the tools he needs to be a spiritual leader in our home and for our family. Guide us in all of Your ways. Thank you for being a perfect Father to me. You have never let me down and You were always there for me. I love you so much and I am so grateful for all of the blessings you have bestowed upon me. Love, Your Daughter~Cherish
Dear Brandon, I love you. All of you. Your strengths and your weaknesses. Thank you for loving me. All of me. My strengths and my weaknesses. You make me a better person and I am indebted to you for that. You have shown me that not only can I be loved, but that I deserve to be loved. You have shown me how a man is truly supposed to treat a lady in every aspect. Thank you for being my Prince. You make me so happy and I am so excited that we have the rest of our lives to spend together. I promise that I will never leave your side no matter what may come. I promise to learn to be more submissive and to always make a warm environment for you to come home to. I promise to love you more each day. Let's make each other better and let's always live to the fullest. Let's always trust in the Lord to show us the life He wants us to lead and build the walls of our home serving the Lord. You are such an inspiration to me. I love your enthusiasm, zeal, and passion for life. You always see the positive sides of every situation and you choose to have a good attitude no matter what the day presents. Your childlike spirit is refreshing and the way you love with every ounce of your being is inspiring. Your laugh and your friendliness are contagious. I love you just the way you are. I am so content to think of how and where we may spend our lives together and I look forward to all that that entails. This day is the best day of my life. You have been a gift from God-the best I have ever received other than my salvation. Here's to Happily Ever After. I love you. Love, Cherish Here's to Happily Ever After!
