It was a warm, sunny day in May of 2019. The birds were singing happily. The trees rustled in the summer breeze. It was a good day. No. It was a glorious day. It was the day Alexis had waited for for so long. It was her wedding day and she couldn’t believe it!
She stood on one side of an open barn door. Her very soon to be husband, Adam, stood on the other side. The wooden barn door between them obscured their view of one another. He wouldn’t get to see her in her wedding dress until she walked down the aisle during the wedding ceremony.
The butterflies fluttered in her tummy as she reached her hand around the edge of the door to meet his. And as she held his hand she read to him a letter she had written.
“Adam, I can’t believe today is finally here. The day I’ve been waiting for since I was a little girl. I would have never believed my Price Charming would be this perfect because you never fail to amaze me. Since the moment you stepped into my life you have been nothing short of a blessing.”
She let out a sigh when she had fished reading and smiled. Now it was his turn to read to her.
“Dear Alexis, today is the day we say ‘I do’. Father God has blessed me with the most beautiful woman in the world and I thank him every day for you. Alexis, you are my soul mate. When I look at you I get a calm feeling and a peace of mind. When I look into your beautiful blue eyes I see a caring, loving, kind hearted, amazing woman and a beautiful mother to our future kids. In a few minutes we are going to become one flesh under God. I promise to be your best friend. I promise to be a great husband to you and to be a great father to our future kids. I promise to be the best a man can be in the name and strength of our Lord Jesus Christ. Baby, I’m so excited to be your husband and to call you my beautiful wife. Alexis, I love you with all my heart. I can’t wait until I say ‘I do’. I’ll see you soon my beautiful bride to be.”
He knew exactly how to make her feel special and today he would become hers forever!
