Over the past few years, I've been blessed to meet some of the most amazing people. Some have been teammates while playing softball, some have been friends I've known since I was two years old, some are clients who turn into friends, but one particular person came into my life as my office mate during my career as an Operations Coordinator.
She and I never expected to be each other's office mate, and truly grow into one of the most genuine relationships with such similar life goals and situations. We are so real with each other, and always guiding one another in the direction our faith longs for.
Danielle reached out to me a few months ago in preparation for her husband's 40th birthday celebration. She wanted to do it BIG! I had the honor of meeting her husband Pierre, about a year prior to this event.
Marriage is a beautiful gift God gave us to cherish, love and respect each other. Watching this couple grow together and placing God in the center of their marriage, signifies their strength and that they can together concur anything with this foundation.
A video was presented to Pierre during this celebration from his wife, Danielle, with warm wishes from close family and friends, good stories from the past, and old time photos. Pierre was speechless and completely moved. Watching him look back at all of the wonderful memories he's created with those he loves, was truly a moment to live for.
But its what happened after the video that touched so many hearts in the room.
He thanked his family, friends and beautiful wife for putting this event together, but the one he kept thanking over and over, was the gift of being introduced to The Lord. Hearing him speak about The Lord in front of everyone present, was a witness that he will always keep him as his number one priority, truly having a marriage that will last eternity.
Danielle and Pierre, I love you both so much, I'm always here for you, and I can't wait to see how your faith grows your relationship even more than it already has!
