It Fits

There are times when you pull an item from the closet or an old pair of jeans... and much to your surprise - they fit. That is a sweet moment. That is a gratitude moment. 

There are other times, we have to wait, work, try, fail, learn and try again. Some things are an easy fit. Others take some time, patience, adjustments and effort. When we choose love... I think it is both.

New love and romance are exciting and fun. Most say they know pretty quick when it really is the one. Other times, it is a surprise. In the case of our children, it is the one who was there all along... but the season had to be right. An easy fit... but some learning, patience and adjustments as life long friendship grows into something even sweeter. A love that says, "I choose you, every day." 

This is another favorite image from the wedding. It is after the moment she puts on his wedding band. It was a tight fit... but it fit. Both of their expressions are priceless. 

I love how the photographer captured so many elements of the ceremony. Real moments. Tangible joy. 

I pray that in 25 years they look at this image and remember the feelings... and the fit.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.-1 John 4:18

Today, I am grateful for the moment when everything fits.
