Lord, Hear our Prayer

It has been almost a year since I stood at the altar in front of friends and family and said I do to my best friend. Naturally, I have spent a good amount of time these past few days, re-living those beautiful moments. I have watched video's, flipped through photos, and read little notes I made in my journal. Of course nothing will compare to the actual day, but it is sweet to have numerous mementos to bring our wedding back to life. I think most of our loved ones would agree when I say, Lloyd and I were more focused on our future together than our wedding day itself. We were excited to become husband and wife and we tried not to let the small things overwhelm the true importance, of the sacrament. With that said the details we did plan were done so intentionally, everything had a reason a purpose.

While looking through my mementos I found the prayers we wrote together and had read during our ceremony. As I looked over them again I realized how much these prayers, and petitions had become the foundations for our first year of marriage. Even in the tough times, when we could not find the words, our hearts held these prayers. In moments of uncharted waters we could call to mind what we asked the Lord the day he joined us together. In good times we could rejoice in the fulfillment of what we sought. We were never alone.

In the coming days I know that I will continue to relieve the moments of wedding, honeymoon and first year of marriage. We will eat cake, dance to our song and talk through our favorite memories from the past year. I also know that I can not even begin to imagine where Lloyd and I will be years from now. What I do know is that these petitions that we made to the Lord, in front of our loved ones, these petitions that we wrote together have guided us through our first year of matrimony and I have no doubt that they will continue to be our guide as we move forward.

"For Katlyn and Lloyd as they begin their married life together. May their home be full of joy and

laughter, may God give them good health and may they always find happiness in each other. We

pray to the Lord.

love, support and guidance through Katlyn and Lloyd’s life. We pray to the Lord.
