12 Years Ago

12 years ago as a wide-eyed, naive, optimistic kid, I stood next to Allison Otey and said, “I do”

12 years ago, I had no idea of the gravity of what we were committing to…

…the pain we would walk through together and the incredible experiences we would share

…the children we hadn’t even began imagining yet and the way they would forever alter our lives

…the adventures that we would share

…the hard decisions we would make

…the times we would laugh, and even cry

…the way we would come to know the other so well

…what was going to change about each of us and what would be the same

…how pursing Jesus together would look in each of the seasons of our lives

I had no idea

I was just this kid, who pursued this girl, and had no idea what was in store for us, but knew it was supposed to be with her. Marriage is the biggest risk that you will take, but it has the potential for the greatest rewards. 12 years ago, I had no idea what all I was stepping into, but I knew who I wanted to step into it with.
