She couldn’t hold back the tears.
A lot of people have doubts going into their wedding day, not huge doubts, but a tiny part of you. It comes with commitment. You may be 99% sure that this is the person for you, but on the other hand, it could be a bad decision. What if it’s all a big mistake? It’s all a part of the big day nerves, and it almost always works out fine.
However, moments before bride-to-be Maggie was due to walk down the aisle, she found out something about her future husband. US Marine Corps Cpl. Caleb Earwood decided there was something he needed to take care of.
Before the wedding had even started, he knew that he needed to pray with his wife. The wedding photographer snapped some great shots of the couple praying together, emotions flowing. Maggie especially started welling up.
As per wedding tradition, the pair faced away from each other so they wouldn’t see each other. But they prayed together and asked for God’s blessing.
“We were about to take our first steps in life together, and we didn’t want to take a step without it being in God’s will,” Caleb Earwood said. “I prayed to God for my beautiful and intelligent wife that he blessed me with, and the amazing family I was marrying into.”
And this moment resounded with Maggie, and she knew she was making the right choice. “When I first grabbed his hand, he was shaking really bad, so I knew he was really nervous,” Maggie recalled. “It relieved me to know the person I was getting ready to marry felt the same way about God.”
The wedding continued without a dry eye in the house! What do you make of Caleb’s pre-marital decision? It certainly reassured the pair. Let us know what you think in the comments, and share this heartwarming story with your family and friends! You can check out similar stories on Happiest.
