As I have been planning my wedding, I've realized that I have become my
worst nightmare: a Bridezilla. I swore I would never be the controlling,
ungrateful, inflexible fiance and here I find myself. Getting upset over too
much money, not the right shade of purple, or uncooperative family members.
My fiance and I were fighting. Getting annoyed at almost everything we said to
each other. We were way too sensitive. That is when it hit me: I'M GETTING MARRIED.
Why am I freaking out?
I'd rather have a loving family and a happy home then the perfect assembly
of arrangements. I'm happy to be loved by a man who would lay down his life
for me. I want to start a family based on the characteristics of Jesus Christ. If
I don't start NOW, there will never be a "right" time to start.
Such love nurtures and sustains faith in God. Such love is a source of strength and casts out
fear (see 1 John 4:18). Such love is the desire of every human soul.”
