It’s been a hectic couple of weeks as a chief bridesmaid for my sister, hence why I’ve been AWOL for a bit!

Talk about wedding exhaustion and it wasn’t even mine! Just a lil peek for you below….

It was a beautiful day! Amazing in fact! Full of love, joy, family and friends. It was the epitome of 2 pure and faithful young adults, coming together and forging their commitment before God and loved ones. I’m so proud of my lil sis ( and yes, she is younger!)

Being the Chief bridesmaid loaded me with lots of jobs and responsibility, tiring me out like no tomorrow! But throughout this whole experience, I found myself pondering about my own desire for marriage and what my expectations are.

You see, we live in a day and age where unfortunately more than 50% of marriages end up in divorce. Now I’m no expert on relationships and life even! And I won’t even try and pretend I know why some marriages stay for the long haul and why others don’t….. But one thing I do know is that if you try and enter into it with the right mindset, putting your very best in, then hopefully each day will get that lii bit easier as you grow together as a couple.

The reality of marriage is that there a 2 imperfect people, coming together under one roof and trying to make it work! My expectation of marriage is not one of fairy tales and fantasy, but of commitment, hard work and grace! It HAS to be more than just the wedding day…. a lifelong commitment cannot be determined by the amount of money and time you spend on the wedding day, but upon the amount of time you invest into one another prior to saying those very powerful vows.  Now don’t get me wrong, if you have the £££ for a big do, go spend it! But I have realized that the power of a couple’s love lies in their testimony, faith and compromise in and for one another.

I am looking forward to the day that I meet God’s best for me 🙂 I don’t believe in ‘the one’ but I do believe that there is someone with whom we are most compatible with. Someone with whom you bring out the best in and they in you. There is beauty in commitment and there’s beauty in marriage. And as I wait for my time, I continue to allow God to work on my flaws so that I can be a blessing to the man I will say those powerful vows to one day.
