Bridals to Share......

WOW, what an amazing past few weeks it has been..!!! My wedding was truly the best day of my life, everything went perfectly. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you to all our family and friends that made this special day so memorable for us, we will never forget it. I promise I will give you all the details but for now I thought I would post some of my bridal pictures.

Friends, Not The Show, Real Friends

Real friendships are so few and far between that when you have that relationship with somebody, you need to hold on to it and appreciate it. For a while now Kristen and I have been blessed with so many awesome people in our lives. We have built strong friendships and have no one but God to thank for them. Both of us struggled through some friendships for a while and we are just so happy to have people around us that show compassion, understanding, and that will be there for us no matter what.

We are so thankful that we will be able to share our wedding day with all of them and we are so happy that they are a part of our lives. We could not have asked for more awesome friends that have been there for us and that have given us words of encouragement and have lend a helping hand through the past year and a half of the wedding planning. Thank you so much for being there for us, we both really appreciate what you all have done for us!

When two become ‘one’ it is both a miracle and a mystery, and the resulting oneness between a husband and wife and their relationship with God is the essence of marriage.

I can not wait until Saturday evening when Kristen and I profess under God that we take one another to be husband and wife. I love you babe!

Almost here......! I can't wait!!!!

I haven't posted pictures in awhile so I thought I would share some from last Friday night at our couples shower. We had such a great time! The weather couldn't have been more perfect and we were so blessed with all the wonderful gifts we received.

Here's a pic of my Babe, he looks kind of scared. Should I be worried....?? HaHa!

Here we are just being silly, a normal occurance.

Here we are opening some of our awesome gifts. I had no idea how happy I would get over a pie crust shield. I guess that's what growing up is all about!

Yay! Now I can make our famous chocolate granola pie without the crust getting all burnt.

We are so happy and can't wait to be husband and wife in 9 short days!!!

Nervous? Not Really. Excited? You Bet!!

So our wedding is just 10, count them, 10 days away. Friends keep asking me if I am getting nervous. To tell you the truth, I am not nervous at all. Is that bad though? Should I be nervous for the next 10 days? I know once the day gets here, as soon as I see Kristen coming down the aisle, my emotions WILL get the best of me. I mean, she is going to be so beautiful in her wedding dress, walking towards me about to declare to God, our friends and our family that she wants to be my wife. How awesome is that?

What did I do right to deserve her as my wife? I really can't think of anything that pops out that says, "Yeah remember this time or that time." I have truly been blessed to have had Kristen in my life for the past 10 years and am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with her! I wonder what we'll look like when we are all old and grey? I wonder what God has in store for us. I wonder what our kids will be like. What about grandkids......?

Only God knows what's in store for us on our new journey together. May he bless us daily and allow us to be more like him everyday! Let Him reign in our lives each and everyday and allow us to pour our love out to the world!

"Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name;make known among the nations what he has done." (1 Chronicles 16:8)

Welcome Back Sebastian, Where Have You Been?

So after a long hiatus I am back and posting a blog. A lot has been going on since the last time I blogged it up. The countdown for the wedding has hit 16 days! Kristen and I are both excited and nervous, but more excited than anything!! We are both ready to see all the hard work that Kristen has put into this wedding come to life!! She is going to be such a beautiful bride!!

A lot has been going through my mind lately due to several things that have come up the last few weeks as we are approaching the wedding. I was thinking back on my life looking at how I have dealt with different situations. Disappointment mainly. I thought about what I would do, or how I would act when something let me down, or disappointed me. I used to just shut down and tune the world out. That, obviously didn't work too well. For the past two or so years, I have dealt with things in a whole new light. The main reason being that I have something concrete and true to turn to; God.

I came up on John 16:33 while just trying to get over certain things and come to terms with others and it opened my eyes. It says: this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world! This verse alone just lets me know that if Jesus overcame the sins of the world, then I myself can certainly overcome any adversity or disappointment in my life.

Although being let down hurts, I have to realize that as a Christian, God will put trouble in my life whenever He feels like my faith needs to be tested. I thank Him for that. Without trials in my life, I will never grow spiritually to be a great husband to Kristen or a great father to our unborn children. Father give us the wisdom and guidance to intentionally seek you each and every day to grow closer to you.
