Like the story of how we met, looks can be deceiving. No matter how many pretty pictures we take or really cool experiences we have together, our relationship is between two imperfect people who will spend a lifetime learning how to love and serve each other better than the day before, sometimes successfully and sometimes not. We hold firmly to the central truth that no part of our story would have been or will be possible without the love and great sacrifice of Christ. He is the First and Ultimate love, and the one whose example we seek to emulate to each other and those around us. We look forward to marriage knowing we will be completely dependent on his grace, and not our own power, to love one another every day we will be given together.
