A Prayer For My Best Friend On Her Wedding Day

Thank You for this sweet friend and this special day.

A Prayer For My Best Friend On Her Wedding Day
Kayla Dean

Dear God,

Wow. I first want to say thank you for blessing me with one of the kindest, sweetest, gentlest souls as my best friend. I am so thankful for the moment she came into my life and all of the moments, big and small, that have lead up to this. You knew exactly what you were doing when you combined these two Jesus-loving, sweet-tea-drinking strangers and for that, I am forever grateful.

In the seventh grade, while all of us were worrying about Abercrombie and side bangs, my best friend already knew who her prince charming was going to be. It wasn't always easy, but you knew exactly what you were doing. You gave my best friend a person who loved her more than anything, and boy, I am so glad she has that. I could not think of a person more deserving.

Today is the day we have all been waiting for. From the Pinterest boards, the long nights of making centerpieces, the many bridesmaid dress fittings, four cake flavors and other countless details, we finally get to celebrate my best friend and her future husband in a ceremony honoring you. Together, they will join into a covenant with you as they become one. I pray that everything runs smoothly, and that there isn't a dry eye in the house. I just know you will be with this couple from the first time they say "I Do."

I pray that the bridesmaids support the bride, and the groomsmen don't give the groom too much of a hard time. I pray that the reception is full of laughs and joy. I pray that all of the guests arrive to and from the wedding safely, and that they will always remember the love that will be present between the bride and groom. Overall, I pray that this, the day my best friend has planned and dreamed about since she was 12, is everything she and her fiancé have wanted and more. And once the vows have been said and the rice has been thrown, I pray that they continue loving each other all while loving you and keeping you in the center of the relationship.

With all of this wedding talk and my accumulation of bridesmaid dresses, God, I pray that I can one day be able to have a love like my best friend and her future husband. I pray that she will want to stand by my side one day just as I stood by hers. I pray that my future husband will look at me the way my best friend's fiancé looks at her. I pray that they continue to show myself, and others, what a true couple of God looks like.

God, I thank you for this day. I thank you for the love and excitement that the day will bring. God, bless this marriage, bless the bride and groom and bless the two families that will become one. Thank you again for the opportunity to witness such a precious moment first hand.

In Jesus' name I pray... Amen

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
