Jonni and Kelly -I am so honored to have been asked to participate in your wedding. It was a beautiful and perfect day for the 2 of you. One of the things I wanted to say to you is how “fantastic” your relationship is. I have been praying for that for years for you, Jonni!
One of things that I love about you Jonni is your shared love of fantasy. You have always been good at using your imagination, creating legos, making music and being a LOTR / HP/ Eragon/ Star Wars nerd. Then you found a real live fun partner in Kelly to dream and explore all the days of your life!
There was a dark season where you seemed primarily focused on the war side of all this but real happiness is not a fantasy or only for fairy tales. Your happily ever after is real and as children of the King you stand together hand-in-hand to face the world, 2 faithful souls united, with courage and hope and prayer.
Every day as you journey through life together may you choose to die to self, to live for the Lord and put your spouse first. May you never give up, never lose faith and keep looking together toward home. When you love someone you will be loyal to them no matter what the cost. You will always believe in them, always expect the best of them, and always stand your ground in defending them (I Cor. 13:7,8 TLB). After all time and ALWAYS.
So may the Force, also known as the Holy Spirit, keep your vows unbreakable and your love unconditional to the very end and ALWAYS!
