The Gift

So I received my pictures from my lovely photographer, Lesa Jefferies, the sweetest christian woman and photographer you'll ever know or work with. I've known the wonderful Mrs. Jefferies since middle school, but she only recently started into photography and she has been gifted in photography! She doesn't have a web site but if anyone is in SC and would be interested in working with her you can contact through her facebook page here.

I have so many wonderful memories of my wedding day and I'm so blessed that my photographer was able to capture my memories so beautifully. One memory in particular was the gift and special note I received from Shane while getting dressed. While Anna, my younger sister, was doing my make-up in front of a window I saw my fiance at the time drive up and hand my maid of honor a gift. It was so fun looking down and seeing him all dressed out in his crisp white shirt, tie, and vest. When Bess, my maid of honor, handed me the gift all my bridesmaids gave a really big "AWWW" and big smiles. I opened the note first and read it out loud. It said:

My Bride,
I can't describe how excited I am for this day to finally be here. You have
me me the happiest man alive! I thank God that he prepared such a wonderful
woman for me to spend my life with, and I'm looking forward to our life
ahead. My prayer today is that you are as excited as I am, that your nerves
are calm, that our evening will be perfect, and that we will always trust
God to lead and provide for us. My promise to you is that I will always
be there; when the road gets wild and scary count on me to be right there!
I love you! Lets Get Married!

When I opened my gift it was a new Bible with my new name engraved on the front. It was the best gift a groom could give his new bride. I will treasure it dearly as we start our new journey together.

Thank you for my gift.
