On the 23rd of December (One week from today) Leon and I will be married for two years!
We had no money, Leon barely had a job and a wedding that was put together by Church family and myself with a guest list of fifty people.
The only thing our marriage was founded on was Faith and faith alone... Much like my pregnancy three months later!!
We really didn't see what was coming. We had no idea what to expect. We didn't know how we'd survive but we just knew the time was right! We loved each other and somehow God would provide all of our needs and Leon and I just knew The Lord approved of this.
We've had opinions thrown at us by people we barely knew.
We've had some gossip about us being sure I was having a hidden pregnancy.
And must I even mention the one's who threw a tantrum because they weren't in or invited to the wedding? Even the one's I haven't heard from in years.
Many were positive Leon and I wouldn't make it.. We didn't start out with money, a good job or a nice house. We started off renting a place with His mama, a slow non steady income and our feet planted on The solid rock.
And here we are two years later still saving as much as we can, Leon now has a steady income with a career, a beautiful baby girl to add to the family and we'll be getting our own place next year! And our feet is still planted on the Solid Rock.. God has literally provided for all of mine and Leon's needs.
Leon and I. We are ones who Married young. These days it's not something the world recommends. In fact they make it very clear that they don't approve.
And of course where we were and our circumstance made that thought even worse. Heck if I was my friend I would even tell myself it wasn't a great idea (does that even make sense?) Anyways.
Our wedding wasn't a huge wedding. It wasn't the one I imagined it would be when I was a little girl with 500 guests and a million dollar photographer.
There was so much drama it wasn't even funny.
And there were many times when Leon and I have honestly felt like eloping but man I'm so glad we didn't!
Minus the craziness thanks to the women of the church, my spiritual sister and everyone who helped out and provided things for us we had a very nice wedding! And the Man I said "I do" to is much more handsome than I had ever imagined.. Just everything about him is better.
