We had a whirlwind of a trip to Charleston, SC. Filled with laughter, good times, and good food. Loved every minute of spending time in this special city with my beautiful bride to be. From the cake taste test to meeting with the photographers it was a blast.

Got to Charleston, SC with this beautiful girl early this morning. We met with our wedding planner at the ceremony venue to finalize the details first thing. Then went by the courthouse downtown to apply for the marriage license! We hit the beach afterwards and are ending the night with dinner at Poe’s Tavern on Sullivan Island. 

Tomorrow comes a full day of wedding planning, it is a bit surreal but exciting all at the same time. God is so good.

No One Else

Tomorrow night Danielle’s plane will land from Houston, Texas and I will pick her up from the airport. Over the last year I have been blessed to write a lot of posts about the fact that Danielle is coming to Asheville or that I am going to Houston.

This time though it feels different. It feels different because I won’t be going to pick up my girlfriend from the airport but my fiancee. This trip has so much purpose behind it that would not be happening if she and I were not about to spend the rest of our lives together. We are getting married, God willing and that is such a thrilling thing to think about.

This trip is for the sole reason to go down to Charleston, SC and finalize everything for our wedding. I may be weird being a guy but I really cannot wait to do all the little things we have planned out for the wedding this weekend. Not really because I love all that stuff but because I will be doing them with Danielle and it will be for our future.

I can’t wait for her plane to land and I can’t wait till the distance between is gone forever.

The Osteen Predicament — Mere Happiness Cannot Bear the Weight of the Gospel

"America deserves the Osteens. The consumer culture, the cult of the therapeutic, the marketing impulse, and the sheer superficiality of American cultural Christianity probably made the Osteens inevitable. "
