Being newly engaged has really changed how I see love. While we already knew we wanted to be together forever, this is the next step before we do the whole we-love-each-other-so-much-lets-get-the-government-involved thing (aka get married). There’s no running; it’s just the two of us taking on the world together. To me, it’s knowing that I’ve found my forever person, my partner in life, and my best friend. We are committed to being a team and nurturing our relationship in this world where giving up can be common.
Growing up in private school, I learned the common verse “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…”
Before getting engaged, I read the most profound statement that forever changed how I see love. The statement said “Read the verse but place your partners name before each Love attribute.” This spoke volumes to me! It really made me think about the type of person that I would marry. I wanted to someone to show me love in a new and beautiful way. I revisit this phrase often. It’s a constant reminder of what love is to me.
Check out Amanda & Timothy’s wedding at Wedgewood at the Retreat which featured this beautiful reminder as the walked down the aisle.
