I think we can honestly say that we can begin the wedding countdown, not that I haven’t been doing it already! I cannot believe that in 99 days I will be walking down the aisle and I will be married to the man of my dreams. 99 days seems to be ages away but I know that it will fly by and we will still have a lot to do leading up to it. 99 days today is the 4th April and so now we can say we will be getting married in 99 days and less! I look forward to seeing what our wedding day will hold and seeing family and friends that we have not seen in so long. I look forward to getting everything planned, I look forward to having my best friends as my bridesmaids, I look forward to my father walking me down the aisle. There is so much that I am unsure of but I know that on the day it will be the best and we will have an awesome time. I know that we will look back on it with fond memories and thank all the people that have helped us along the way and in our married life.
In 99 days I will be marrying someone who I have known for 5 years, who I have been dating for almost 2 and have been engaged for just over a year. What an amazing thing and I feel so blessed that this man will be forever my husband. I still remember the day I saw my future husband and knew that he was the one and I wanted to marry him. I knew that I wanted him to be the father to my children, to be the person who is my soul mate, to be the person who will be there, the person who I can have adventure with, the person who I can laugh with, the person I can be goofy with, the person who I can grow old with, the person that I can travel with, the person that will provide ice cream, the person who I can road trip with. I am blessed to be getting married to this guy! I know that when we do get married life will be different and life will change but we will still be the same people but growing and developing together.
I have loved watching us grow together, to seeing us care for each other and start our lives together. I knew that I wanted to be with man and I am so thankful that God has been able to bring us together to now get married, well in 100 days! My whole life is turning around, I am no longer on my ‘own,’ I no longer need to think about just myself, I no longer need to meet my own needs, I no longer need to focus on myself, I no longer need to love myself more than anyone else, I no longer need to just provide for myself, I no longer need to be selfish, I no longer need to think about myself. Most people would hate not being able to do this anymore but I can’t wait.
I can’t wait to love, serve, honour, obey and submit to my husband. We both have to be committed to this wedding and we are with all of our hearts. We know that being married will be hard but we know that it will be worth it and we look forward to this future ahead of us. The wedding day will be amazing and as much as we look forward to marrying each other we know that God will be at the centre of our marriage and He will help us to keep going and to trust each other. We know that in all things Jesus will provide for us and He will help us to serve each other.
In 99 days we will be getting married and we will say ‘I do’ and show our family and friends how committed we are to each other and the new life that we will begin to lead. God will be at the centre of our ceremony as He will be in our marriage. In all things we can trust and lean on Him and show each other His love through us. I am looking forward to planning all the fine detail in the next 99 days. Today it is boxing day but we are looking forward to counting down the next 99 days! Lets go, start the new year and get married!
