Rebecca and Miles’ joy radiates in every one of their wedding photographs. But Rebecca’s favorite moment wasn’t one captured by the photographer. The morning of their wedding Rebecca and Miles had breakfast alone, just the two of them. They cuddled, giggled, and soaked in each other’s presence. They slowed down and appreciated the little things - like the barista writing “love” in Becca’s latte. Small moments of love seem to be the ones that make the biggest impacts on our hearts.
From Rebecca: “The older I get, the more I see God's love in every person, place, situation... It is so far beyond 'inclusive'- it is everywhere.”
Rebecca is obviously smitten with everything about Miles. She sees the absolute best in him and would tell anyone who will listen that he’s her hero. What’s the thing Miles does that makes Rebecca swoon? When he hand washes her blender and her nice knives. Proving that love is everywhere, even in the dishes.
With weddings that are becoming more like events, we seem to think that every act of love must be this grand. When in reality, it’s the little things that matter the most to us. It’s the walk around your neighborhood holding hands and talking about your dreams, it’s the random note of encouragement, it’s the prayer journal you’ve kept for your spouse, it’s these simple things that matter the most.
We live in a world that says bigger is better. We’re expected to want more of everything instead of being content with what we have. Love wins over the ways of the world, and proves time and time again that we don’t need big romantic gestures to feel its goodness.
