“To have found God and still pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of Love.” A W Tozer
When Faf and Ash asked me to shoot their wedding early next year, I knew it was going to be much more than just a job for me.
I’ve been friends with them since almost the start of their relationship, and I’ve watched how Faf has pursued Ash’s heart with such tenderness and patience.
Last week I took them into the woods. All week he and I worked on a surprise Welcome Board for their wedding. The stories behind it
are gold, but they’re much better told face to face by Faf, the king of story telling. He did almost everything himself to put the board together,
knowing how much Ash loves DIY stuff. He also surprised her with a watch by The Horse (her face was priceless). It was awesome to
be part of his grand plan to woo and win heart heart this week.
Afterwards I was thinking about it, and Faf + Ash’s relationship really reminded me that though God doesn’t need us, He includes us in
His mission to woo and win the hearts of those that are already His – people that He Himself made. Faf adores Ash, and has and will continue
to pursue Ash’s heart even after they’re married; and so God pursues us every day of our lives and into eternity. That’s crazy amazing grace.
