I Love My Wife!

I love my wife!

It seems that everyday I’m reminded of how much she means to me.  I’d like to think there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to make her feel special.  I hope I never forget our wedding day and how I felt watching her walk down the aisle toward me.  This was one of the most exciting moments of my life.  My bride, the one who I had pursued for years, was finally about to enter into covenant with me.  We were about to join together for a life-long relationship, which I now know, is the greatest thing.

What is most amazing about the wedding picture is that God has chosen it to illustrate His love for His people.  The prophet Isaiah prophesied “as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.”  What a great picture of God’s love!  He is at the alter waiting for each of us to make the decision to enter into an everlasting relationship with Him.  Although no man or woman can be the perfect spouse, God is good and promises to be our perfect loving Lord.  When we enter into a relationship with Him, we can be sure that He will never let us down.

This is the video Michelle and I made and played during our wedding to illustrate this picture:




Feeling the pressure, I’ve decided to write my first blog.

This last month has been very exciting for me as I’ve been planning to propose to my girlfriend, Michelle.  All my planning came to a close this past weekend when I asked Michelle the question, “Will you spend the rest of your life with me?”  After being shocked initially, Michelle declared “Yes!” and jumped into my arms.  This is a moment I wish to cherish for a very long time.


What a joy it has been these last couple of days to sit with Michelle and discuss plans for our wedding.  I can’t even imagine my feelings on the wedding day when I watch her walk toward me, knowing that we are about to connect for a lifetime adventure.  It’s so amazing to think that this is the image God wants us to keep of our relationship with Him.  He is anxiously waiting for His church to join Him in everlasting joy.  Oh, what an awesome God we serve!  One who cherishes each and every one of us as though we were His chosen bride!
