September 27, 2008 - I Do



1 Corinthians 13:4-8 says:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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.

We have heard these verses over and over many times in the past few years. Not until this day did we truely know what it meant. A little over a year and a half ago I wrote on the prayer wall at church something to the effect "Father please show him we need to be married." Now under it reads. "Lord thank you for an answered prayer, I am now Mrs. Wilkinson." I am a strong believer that prayer works, and if you are patient your prayers will be answered. My prayer was answered yesterday, in the prayer room at church. At 11:30 a.m. Kyle and I became husband and wife. In attendance was his mother Cherryl, Kevin our pastor and his wife Tonni. Tonni, Kevin, and Cherryl have been there for us through so much this past year and a half, and we are truely blessed to have them in our lives and to of been able to have them there to rejoice and ignite with emotions on that day. There have been many phone calls and many emails on why other people were not invited, or why we didn't tell anyone. We wanted to be able to share this moment with eachother in the presence of the people we are closest to and God without having all the pressure of dates and financial responsibilities that we just could not possibly meet right now. In the not so distant future we will have a reaffirmation of our vows were we will have a grand ceremony and a reception to follow and everyone will be included this time around. So we ask you to refrain from sending any congratulatory packages, please save that for the reaffirmation ceremony.
