So I've told you all about our story and how the Lord led us to where we are today. But here a few reasons why I just love and cannot get enough of my husband-to-be.
He trusts in the Lord above all else. His strength is not his own and he is confident in the Lord, always choosing to see and hope for the best.
He is always honest with me. He never plays games with me or leaves me guessing; he tells me what he thinks directly, but he does so with a tender gentleness and patience.
He makes me want to be the best I can be. He points out my flaws in a kind and loving way and encourages me to trust the Lord to continue to shape and mold me.
He makes me laugh. I cannot tell you how hard Ror makes me laugh. He comes out of nowhere and just says the silliest things, and I am done.
He loves to help others. He is selfless and humble, never expecting recognition but constantly doing things behind the scenes to take care of the ones he loves and the people whom he serves at work each day.
He listens to me. I talk so. very. much. And Ror never asks me to be quiet or stop talking. He just listens and then offers his advice or tells me what he thinks in his quiet and sweet way.
His family is important to him. Rory is an introverted man with a handful of friends who are his lifelong buddies, and then he has his family. He loves spending time with them and helping them, and he invests in them well.
He loves me well. Rory takes care of me, and he tells me I'm pretty or beautiful at least once a day. He prays for me and with me. He fights for me and he respects me.
For all of these reasons and more, I can say with great joy that I am honored to become Mrs. Rory Mathisen tomorrow before God and all of our closest friends and family.
