An Open Letter To My Future Maid Of Honor

Because I couldn't imagine anyone else by my side.

An Open Letter To My Future Maid Of Honor

To My Future Maid Of Honor...

First and foremost, I don't think you actually know how much you mean to me. No matter how many stupid things I've done, how many times you've purposely pushed me down the stairs or what goals I have me eyes on you are one of the people who will always be standing by my side until the end of the day. No matter how many days or weeks we go without having an actual conversation( I don't think snapchat and tagging you in things on Facebook actually counts here), I know you will always be there for me until the end. Thanks for being my forever friend since the beginning, 17 years to be exact.

Who would have thought out of all the people who have passed in and out of my life, you would be the one standing next to me today? When I thought about my dream wedding, I will honestly say I didn't think you'd be the one right next to me today and fast forward to today, many years later and things sure did change. It seems like just yesterday we were meeting back in preschool and now here we are, on my wedding day. We not only grew a part over the years, but we grew so much closer too. They say, friends are the family you choose for yourself and that couldn't be any more true. You are the little sister I never had, and if you want to get technical you are younger than me.

Let's face the truth for a second though, you're going to know the exact moment he asks way before I do, and hopefully if it is done right, you will be involved and be there when it happens. Okay, so I may not have gotten any ring yet, but let's face it, you and I both know eventually one day it will come. You may not have expected me to ask you to be the one to stand next to me as I get married, but I couldn't picture anyone else. Just as a warning now before you agree to the job, picking out the dress is going to be an experience of a lifetime for you and I'm sorry way in advance for what you'll have to deal with. I know you will accept the job as my Maid of Honor when I do officially ask you one day, and I promise I will be as creative as I can get since I'm kind of telling you now. And we will take an adventure through the planning process without killing each other to much. I think everyone would appreciate it if we made it to the wedding.

Life sure has taken us on a different kind of friendship, but I'm grateful for it. I don't know anyone else who has a friendship like ours in the way it happen, but it's something I will always treasure about us. Thanks for loving me as much as you did at four years when we first met, at fourteen when we found each other again to today in our twenties. I know we don't talk about our futures at all ( because we know they will be amazing), but I'm proud to call you one of my best friend and the one who will be standing next to me on my wedding day! There is no doubt in my mind that you are going to be one awesome elementary school teacher that little children will look up to you as much as we look up to Mrs.Zanni! Going from doing every theatre show in high school together to once we know it I'll be hours and miles away is kind of scary, but I know and am confident that we will become even closer than we are now because of it. And hey, I will accept visitors! Thank you for supporting me and cheering me on in this big change in my life as its just starting(and as of today, January 12, 2017 I'm 1.2 pounds away to my max weight).

Looking toward the future, I only hope and know you find everything you want out of life and more! You deserve bigger than the world Gina and I'm happy I'll be able to see all the amazing things happen in your life. I can't wait for the day you make it to Broadway, because I know it will happen one day (I'm allowed to have super high hopes for you). Do whatever makes you happy, no matter how big or small it is and never lose sight of your dreams. You've got dreams and you've got the right to protect them with all you got! Things may not land right into place along the way, but never settle for anything less than amazing. But always remember when life gets weird and crazy, I will always be right there next to you!

Thank you one last time for being my best friend, right hand man, partner in crime and now that you know future maid of honor. Thank you for making me look decently normal in high school, even though we both know that is no where near true for the two of us. Thank you for openly allowing me to annoy you all those times in high school. And lastly and most important, thank you for being the one by my side from age four till death. I know we don't hangout as much as we should because life is happening, but we will see each other soon and hangout plenty before we know when I'm leaving, and that's a promise.

Thanks for being our amazing best friend! I would say mine, but you've already accepted Sean with only meeting him once thus far. That one day he got a theatre reference of mine I knew you would approve of him, so I guess you can say he passed the most important test of yours. You've brought in another crazy into your life and I kind of hope you are ready. Here's to a lifetime of being annoyed by the two of us! Love you always! Also, I extremely love this picture, so it was just another reason to use it again.

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
