it’s wedding season, so i’ve heard. & practically all my friends are getting married. so i guess it’s true!
young love. it’s a song, it’s a thing. people say it all the time.
i remember three years ago, while i was in honduras for the first time, where i watched young love grow. bekah & brandon were friends – really good friends. bekah was a spark – a spit fire. she challenged brandon to push up contests and made fun of his hair. she was sporty & he was smitten. i remember, as their leader, starting conversations like:
“brandon, what kinda girl do you wanna marry?”
he went on to describe a person who just so happened to have the same characteristics as bekah . . . #hello#obvious
i asked bekah the same question:
“what kinda guy do you wanna marry?”
without hesitation, she blurted out:
it was a hilarious moment for multiple reasons . . . & she was definitely kidding!
i’ll never forget watching their young love grow. from friendship, to dating, to engagement, & now, marriage.
god’s beautiful in his planning. he knew bekah & brandon were going to be married one day . . . even as we painted the back porch of the mission house in honduras in 2010. he knew. i guess i kinda knew too. 🙂
bekah & brandon married on july 12, 2013, in the church where they met. in the church that supported & walked along side them during their dating relationship.
young love is rare.
or maybe it’s not.
maybe it’s the way god grows some of the most unique hearts together.
