My wedding speech

We couldn’t have been any more different, not if the sun and moon traded places or the stars that ornament the sky were the grains of sand that muddled our feet. We couldn’t have written this, not in our wildest dreams could we have contemplated the moment our worlds would align and our chapters would read as one, but

Our lives were divinely orchestrated

to bring us to the day our eyes first played charades as we willed them to say all we couldn’t verbalize all the while tiptoeing into this heavenly scripted love drama.

You got into character & with an eloquent sincerity your words played on the harp of my heart, gently stroking each string creating a love symphony, conversations became the bedtime stories that put the stars to sleep & bid the night good morning.

As your words laid bare the substance of your heart i fell for your beautiful mind. I saw in you facets of a love I didn’t know I needed as you gave life to a love I didn’t think possible.

Even when both waves & winds threatened to dismantle our union. Peace be still was your command of love to the pride in my heart. Amidst our word wars your patience was the master that tamed this unruly tongue. Yes the strength of your character fought for us.

I can unashamedly say you are the man I wasn’t perceptive enough to pray for or creative enough to dream of. Yet God graced me with that which was exceedingly & abundantly above all I could ask or think!

It’s with a gleeful wholeheartedness that I step into the genesis of our forever. As we exodus the life of singleness and enter our Canaan, this covenant.

Our promised land that goes beyond contractual constrictions, A land flowing with consistency and compromise so when this commitment hits complicated I promise to consult His user manual.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails…

This way I will love you, till my life gives its last benediction and my heart has said Amen.
