Emily and Matt will be married on April 11th.
We've been looking forward to this day, since Emily started talking to Matt over three years ago. There's a sweet story to be told.
Matt's father was our pastor in the late 90's. Emily and Matt were young teenagers and involved in our church youth group. So they spent a lot of time together as friends. Matt was the kind of boy every mother wants their daughter to marry. I was no exception and when Emily was about 15 years old, I told her so. I said, "Emily, Matt is the boy I want you to marry." But, before she could wrap her head around that, Matt had to move. His daddy was called to a different church. The move pretty much ended my hopes that Emily and Matt would one day marry. She went her way and he went his. They both married someone else.
However, life and years later, Emily and Matt found themselves, once again, single. Were they looking for each other? No. But, if ever anything good came from social media, it is this. Emily and Matt found each other on Facebook, after all those years. They began talking. One thing led to another and Matt was back in our lives. They've been seeing each other ever since and now it's time. It's time to bring him into the family. Cliff and I couldn't be happier. Matt is a wonderful man! He loves Emily and the children with all his heart. And we know they will live happily ever after.
Knee deep in wedding plans,
