If you follow my blog, you know that I love writing about each couple’s love story.
But when Jenna shared her love story with me, it made me sit in silence for awhile, just savoring the beauty of love lost, and then found; how forgiveness can change everything. We all can get a little lost in the world, but true love is always there, waiting patiently for us. She shared her story so perfectly that I didn’t want to touch the perfectly authentic words that came from a genuine and humbled heart; a heart that found it’s way home.
“They say that sometimes, with just one look, you know, and we did. We first fell in love a long time ago–the kind of crazy, innocent, head-over-heels love we know in movies, only I thought it was too good to be true. But John disagrees; he says he knew we were meant to be together. Because of my hesitations, we missed our chance, and in the blink of an eye we were headed for college. We traveled to new places, we broke each other’s hearts, we made new friends, and even found new love…but it never measured up to our love. For both of us, we could never forget ‘the one that got away.’ After a time, we found each other, forgave each other, and now we are so deeply in a beautiful love that began a decade ago. It is said that ‘life will take you on many adventures, but love will always lead you home.’ We are so thankful we had the chance to realize that the love we were meant for was the love we had all along–neither of us feel like we deserve it, but we couldn’t be happier to be married to the one true love of our lives.”
Congratulations Jenna and John. You remind us how beautiful second chances can be.
