Here Begins a Journey...


Church Posted by Hello

On an early Saturday evening of March 12, 2005 at St. Phillips Methodist Church in Houston, begins a new journey of matrimony between two very special people who re-define love, committment and courage. Jhon and Kim in the midst of hardship and physcial challenge found eachother a few years back. Today, before the eyes of God and honored guests they exchanged wedding vows and promised not to just love, honor and obey but to help eachother overcome their physical limitations and find strength and courage in one another. To see and witness their courage and love is an inspiration to me and everyone they meet--as both Jhon and Kim are visually impaired. Jhon is completely blind and Kim has limited vision but yet, they do not seek pity only dignity and do it with such grace and humility and most of laughter. They redefine the old joke, "the blind leading the blind". Yes, the blind is leading the blind here and if you should cross their path, stand back, watch and be amazed and wonder--not in their disability but in their a-b-i-l-i-t-y. Today, was such a joy to witness and the following pics are only a small glimpse of this joyous occasion. Congratulations Jhon & Kim.

Thanks for sharing their story! It looks (and sounds) like it was a great event! I must say, her dress is lovely--very unique.

For the love obstacles do not exist.
They seem to be a lovely couple.

That must have been a wonderful day. They look great together and were clearly enjoying themselves. I wish them all the best.
