Although portions of it feel like a blur, it really was a dream come true!
example to me as a couple, in showing and receiving love. It’s amazing, because their situation and
circumstances have never been ‘normal’.
They met, dated, fell in love, got engaged… all without the familiar
surroundings of their closest family and friends. Sure there were emails, and Skype
conversations, but Justin and Catherine had to learn many things on their own,
and early on: how to rely, trust and support each other, how to laugh and cry
together, how to share everything and forgive quickly. Who here has not turned to someone outside of
their relationship to vent or clarify some problem?!? God gave them only each other, and we are
told He is good at giving us exactly what we need.”
“I am grateful for many things in my life. I am
grateful for my loving family. Not only did they encourage me to always do my
best, but they also accepted my best. I am grateful to be able to travel the
world. I am grateful to be blessed with a healthy mind and body. I am grateful
to have such a rewarding profession. But what I am most grateful for is
Catherine. When I met Catherine I was a shell of the man I am today. She has
motivated and encouraged me like no one else in my life ever has. Anything I
will ever achieve or will have will be because of her effort and encouragement.
The thing that I will never be able to thank her enough for is that she was the
one that helped me find the Lord. My whole life, I have always been missing
something. I have never felt whole or complete at any stage. Catherine helped
me to find that. She put in the last piece of the puzzle. I am extremely lucky
that GOD chose her to help save me. She saw something in me that no one else ever
has. POTENTIAL. And I will spend the rest of my life proving her right. Please
raise your glass to Catherine and anyone else that has ever changed your life
or has helped you become the person you never thought you could have been on
This was a truly amazing night, and Justin and I were over the moon to be celebrating with our family and friends. The evening did not, however, end here. There was plenty dancing, laughing, and entertainment from certain guests. All of that coming in our next wedding post.
