"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,"
declares the Lord.
As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. -Isaiah 55:8-9
Last Saturday morning, Holden, his parents, and I went to see the venue where we're getting married. It's beautiful, romantic, everything I had hoped it would be! There was a lot of anticipation before the trip and I was so excited when we got there, met the owners, talked with them, then left. It felt so perfect.
But Sunday night, I got some hard news from my dad: my mom isn't doing well. He asked if there was any way we would be able to get married in TN because they wouldn't be able to travel to SC.
I cried because of my mom.
I cried because of the shock of being excited and then being devastated.
I was confused and upset.
I imagined getting married in Charleston in the fall.
But the Lord has different plans for us.
Holden and I made the decision to get married in Tennessee in the spring so that my parents can be there.

We are still going to have a reception in South Carolina, though.
The time for us to plan and save money was cut in half, but we know this is absolutely the right thing for us. But at the end of the day, I am marrying my best friend and I couldn't be happier!
Everything is happening quickly, but I know that the Lord will provide. He always does.
