Relationships that last the test of time are forged not in extended good times, but in hardship and struggle; in seeing one another’s sin and choosing to love them anyways. Love like that is scandalous. Grace like that is a gift, not something that can be earned but something that must be fought for and fueled by a higher love, but an understanding that we can’t offer grace and love like that without first knowing what that looks like. That’s why I love these two. The consuming infatuations of a young relationship have faded away and given birth to something deeper, something truer, something so much more beautiful. Little did I know when I met with these two over 2 years ago, that we would all embark on the journey we have to telling their legacy. I have been able to watch and hear how their view of Jesus has transformed their relationship and drawn them so much deeper into a love they never knew possible.
Stay tuned, in just a few weeks these two will tie the knot. I can’t wait to share more!
