Best Friends Wedding
|Me and Becky|
Proverbs 18:22 “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, And obtaineth favour of the LORD.”
On Saturday November 21, 2015 I was blessed to be a part of my best friends wedding. I have known her since third grade.
As we grew up, I moved on before high school was over and got married myself. I had my family and lived away from my home town for many years, twelve to be exact. A few years after moving back to my hometown I reconnected with Becky. We have been inseparable since. I have been with her through the ups and the downs as she has for me. I have watched her survive through her divorce, and grow stronger.
When she met Will, it was all of the sudden, but one I felt would be good for her. I knew it would be just a matter of time. When she called me that Sunday and said are you sitting down, I knew there was something up. She told me how he had purposed to her and she had accepted it and the wedding was in a month. Yep we threw this wedding together in a month. Hard to believe but we did it. We went dress shopping, flower shopping and brides maid shopping. The month flew by. Will seemed to make her happy, so I never questioned the fast pace for this marriage. They are such a cute couple and I know that he will be a positive influence in her life as well as her children's life. The main thing is that he has shown her that he will be there for her and he will go to church with her. That was one of the main things that was important to my friend. She needs that reaction with church, she need that man that would be there with her in church. I pray blessings over this union that I witnessed. I pray the Lord will continue to let them grow as man and wife and let him grow as a father to her girls.
