Summary: The best man always gives the groom a little speech before he says I Do. It turns out to be a big day for the both of them.

-The Big Day-

“Alright boys, disperse! This shindig goes down in a half hour and the best man needs to have a little chit-chat with the man of the hour…” Dean’s face lit up, watching the other groomsmen look over at him as he came through the door. Matt Anoa'i, Jimmy and Jey Uso as well as Seth Rollins all gave the groom a final hug and a handshake before filing out past Ambrose to help user in guests as they arrived to the resort.

“Should I sit down for this?” Roman laughed, watching Dean walk toward him. Both men were dressed in crisp suits and ties, not a hair out of place. Dean motioned for two chairs next to huge bay windows, dark blue Atlantic Ocean as far as the eye could see in either aerial direction.

“Yeah, you probably should. I’m about to go all emotional best friend–best man on you.” They share a hearty laugh as they both take a seat. Looking down from the window you could see the wedding grounds on the back lawn of the Oceanside resort. White chairs lined in rows on either side of the isle covered in fuchsia colored rose petals. The warm, early morning south Florida sun beamed brightly.

Roman leaned over with his elbows on his knees as he waited for the first of Dean’s many speeches for his big day. Ambrose may not have very many serious bones in his body and was usually the one making everyone laugh but when it came down to it, he could move mountains with his words when they truly came from his heart.

“Dude, when I woke up this morning and realized today was the day, I still couldn’t wrap my head around it. I can’t believe after all that skirt we chased you’re finally settling down with one woman..” Roman smiled, watching the guests start to file out to their seats as the movement caught his light gray eyes.

“So your big opening statement is reminding me how much of manwhore I was? All of a sudden I’m not so sure I want you to make that speech at the reception later…” Dean thumped him in the arm with his fist in response.

“Shut up man, I’d never say shit like that in front of your family. You’ve got half the damn Isle of Samoa down there… But seriously man, I just never saw you as the guy that would take the plunge is all. Hell, I never thought I’d have a girlfriend either but I wouldn’t trade Renee for the world. And I know you wouldn’t trade [Y/N] either. I’ve watched you grow into an even better man than I thought you were these last two and a half years because of her. She brings out the best in you.”

Roman looked Dean square in the eye, seeing the emotion there. It was rare for him to get on this level but today was a special occasion and he wanted to make sure his best friend knew exactly how he felt and that he had his blessing before saying I Do.

“When I went to check on Renee a few minutes ago I saw her…” He paused, putting his hand on Roman’s shoulder giving it a squeeze. “Dude never in a million years could you imagine how stunning she looks today. You’re going to lose your mind when she comes down that isle, I promise you that.” Roman’s smile turned into a giddy grin as he tried to picture seeing his beautiful bride for the first time as she walked down the isle to become his wife.

“I have no doubt she looks gorgeous man, she always does. Not to mention she’s been worrying over everything for the last six months…” Roman licked his lips and shifted in his seat. The anticipation was starting to build as he felt the tightening in his chest increase. He couldn’t believe the day was finally here either. Dean shook his head, knowing Roman didn’t fully understand what he was referring to.

“It isn’t that. It isn’t the dress, the hair, the shoes or the make-up. She’s a knockout man, anyone with eyes could see that from miles away. But today is different. Today is her wedding day. She hasn’t just been planning this for only six months, she’s been dreaming about this day since she was a little kid. Marrying you today will become the greatest day of her life. Every bit of emotion and love that she feels for you, you can see it on her face–in her eyes. That’s what stunned me. I could visible see it all.”

“I hope you can see that in me too..” Roman started, letting Dean’s words sink in. “I know we wrote our own vows and I know how good you and Seth thought they were when I read them last night but I still don’t think I’ve done justice. How are you supposed to put into words what your feel inside for the love of your life? Your soul mate?”

“Rome, don’t worry. Those vows are going to have every female in the joint reaching for the Kleenex. I’ve never seen you as happy as you are today. And I know as you start your lives together that will only continue. You and [Y/N] deserve all the happiness in the world…” Dean paused, running a shaky hand through his dirty blond hair. “As for knowing how to tell the love of your life what you feel inside, I’ll let you know.”

Roman eyed him, his eyebrows coming together at the tone he switched to. “What? You’ve got something up your sleeve Ambrose.. I can sense it.” Dean laughed.

“I’m going to ask Renee to marry me.” At first Roman thought he was kidding, honestly. Since he was getting married today, Ambrose was going to try to…

Roman saw that tell-tell gleam in Dean’s eye and the way he nervously began to shift in his seat now that he’d dropped this bombshell.

He wasn’t kidding.

“You’re serious?” Roman asked as he tightened the slick bun that his hair was tied up in.

“Oh I am, Uce…” Dean paused, smiling so big his dimples hurt. Roman looked at him, eyeing him again as his mouth fell open in shock. He never thought Dean would ever find the one even though Roman told him all the time how Renee was perfect for him.

“Seriously dude? You’re going to ask her? You bought a ring?” Roman questioned, still unable to wrap his mind around the fact that Dean definitely wasn’t kidding and actually planned to settle down just like Roman was doing today.

“Yeah, bro. I bought it last weekend during that sting of shows we did in New York. The more I thought about your wedding and the happier I saw [Y/N] get the closer we came to today I just.. I don’t know. I just feel like Renee is the one. Sometimes I feel like I’ve lost my mind but then I see her and I just know…”

“When are you going to ask her?” Roman asked, thankful that the spotlight was off him if only for a moment. It was helping to calm his own nerves seeing as he was about to give someone else his last name in a matter of minutes.

“Well…” Dean rubbed a hand across the stubble on his chin. “I was thinking about asking her at the end of my Best Man speech during your reception.. If you think that would be okay with [Y/N]. I don’t want her to think I’m trying to steal her thunder or anything…”

“No,” Roman chuckled, grinning at his best friend. “That’s her best friend. I think she’ll be just as excited and happy as Renee is going to be when you get down on one knee…” Roman paused, shaking his head. “Holy shit man, I never thought I’d see this day. We’re hanging up our bachelor boots and will be off the market for good!”

“I know man, can’t believe this old tag-team has finally met their match. Speaking of your match, the main event of your life is about to start,” Dean told him, standing up with Roman. They stared at each other a moment longer before hugging tightly like the brothers that they felt they truly were. Pulling back Dean adjusted Roman’s tie and dusted off the shoulders of his suit. “Let’s go give this little lady a last name she can’t pronounce.” Roman laughed, shaking his head as she followed Dean out the door and down to his wedding ceremony.


anonymous asked:

do you know about the hair stylist named Janet Stephens? she's studied ancient roman hair styles and published some breakthrough scholarly articles (even though she isn't an academic herself) about how they were actually done. she has a youtube channel where she shows how to do very intricate ancient hair styles. the videos are strangely calming, too. I think you'd like it.

Ahh I have heard of her! I read an article about her a while back. I have no idea as to the veracity of her hairstylin’ tricks as I’ve never watched her videos myself (yet) but whatever the accuracy, it’s cool as balls!

Lots of people, young people in their vast majority, use Tumblr and other social sites to talk about their favorite TV shows, cartoons, movies, etc. That’s fine to have one but I’ve been noticing a horrifying trend among Christians that have such kind of blogs.

I’ve been noticing a lot of people what have their blogs dedicated to such things end up posting indecent photos and photos with dirty language in the caption. Pornography is a sin, homosexuality is a sin, getting drunk is a sin, cursing is a sin and so on. I noticed that lots of people are basically spending their time praising the work of the devil and trying to follow God at the same time and that will never work.

We all know that famous passage in Matthew 6:24 that tells us that “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money” right? The word “money” in the English translation comes from mammon, the Aramaic term for wealth or possessions. The point is not that money is inherently evil, but that it is often misused so that it is a means of evil. God must be first, not money or possessions. Same goes for most of everything in life, they might not be inherently evil but people misuse it and make it evil.

How many people watch movies with scenes of violence, sex, gay, adulterous, alcoholic consumption and all sorts of sin in them and end up leaving the theater pleased with the movie even though it had all sorts of things the Bible condemns, only because that movie had a plot which we sympathized with or had lots of action scenes? Gotta give credit to the devil, he’s good at masquerading his deception, but then again as the Bible tells us, “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” He’s the king of deception and people are being desensitized little by little to the wickedness of this world. Little by little people are drifting further away from the God of Israel.

I see so many people with blogs dedicated to things that honestly don’t deserve any kind of praise whatsoever. For instance, Supernatural fandom blogs have no problem portraying angels of heaven as “bad” guys. The show makes it seem as if there’s a hierarchy in Hell, when in fact the Bible tells us every single soul in Hell will be in torture, even the devil and his demons. The show portrays an absent God. Not to mention that show portrays casual sex, violence, killing, and everything that is wicked as normal events. And what’s worst is that it starts to plant the seed on people’s mind that just being a “good person” is enough to go to Heaven if they die without accepting Jesus as their savior. Will Jesus allow entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven for those who say they had “cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?” or will He say, “I never knew you. Get away from Me, you who break God’s laws” as we are told in Matthew 7? Good works without faith mean absolutely nothing at all (Romans)! Just as faith without works means nothing (James)! Works are a byproduct of your faith. Do not be fooled, there’s no such thing as a “good person” in this world and no matter how hard you try, you can never get to Heaven by your own deeds.

We also have fandoms dedicated to Harry Potter, Once Upon a Time, and many other shows like them even though we know the Lord tells us not to have anything to do with witchcraft and sorcery whatsoever. Books/movies which shows things which the Bible strictly prohibit isn’t “fun” but rather it’s an ingenious deceptive way to desensitize us to the truth of the Bible.

One of the biggest fandoms come from the longest running TV show, Doctor Who. A man/god who time travels, changes forms, capable to doing ungodly things, but all very well-masked in a sci-fi setting. A show that showed the Earth being formed and being destroyed not as the Bible tells us of its origins and its future end. For decades this show has captivated the hearts of countless people. Countless people throughout decades just being fascinated by aliens, time travel and all this non-sense. As always, the devil finds “fun” ways for us to spend our time away from the only One who can truly save us, Jesus Christ.

So many other shows such as 2 Broke Girls, New Girl, Modern Family, and all these other shows which show it’s perfectly normal to have sex as often as you’d like with strangers, being drunk, following a homosexual lifestyle and even going as far as showing 2 underage boys kissing each other just to be the one to show the “youngest underage gay kiss ever” as if that’s something to be proud of.

How about cartoons such as The Simpsons, South Park, Family Guy, SpongeBob and so many others that make fun of Christianity and our core values at every chance they get? How can you possibly even want to watch something that mocks Jesus and our faith in Him and not have a problem with it all? And what’s more worrisome, how can you laugh at those jokes and still consider yourself a Christian? Is the Holy Spirit not dwelling within you to convict you of sin and show you God’s righteousness as Jesus talked about in John 16?

There’s also blogs dedicated to certain singers and/or bands. These bands play secular music and their everyday actions and beliefs show little to no regard for Christ whatsoever, so one must wonder why is anyone following/listening to such people to begin with? Why admire someone for their music/works if there’s no faith in them? Why admire anyone who doesn’t thank their Father in Heaven for their lives here on earth, especially if they’ve been blessed so much? Why worship, and that is a form of worship, anyone who won’t bring glory to Yahweh’s name?

Or even something as “innocent” as yoga is a terrible way to mislead people. Yoga’s movements are meant to connect you with the “divine” and even the way people greet and say good bye to each other by putting their hands together and bowing and saying Namaste is a horrible offense, because that action means “I bow to the divine in you.” A Christian should NEVER practice yoga. A healthy alternative to yoga is Pilates, which doesn’t have all the Indian false religious nonsense.

I beg you, read your Bibles and learn about our Lord and praise Him rather than praise the things of this world. As the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, in these last days people “will love fun instead of loving God” and sadly enough we’ve fallen to the trap of thinking it’s okay to have a little fun which isn’t Biblically approved every now and then. The only One that is worthy of your praises and your time is the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t be one of those people who Paul talks about who love to have worldly fun rather than rejoice in loving God.

People end up basically worshiping their TV shows and characters, celebrities, cartoons or whatever their fandom blog is about. It’s fine to have some entertainment as long as we don’t go out of your way to make it into something it’s not, and especially we shouldn’t be praising it instead of praising the Lord. The only One that deserves all our praises is God. We should follow His Word wholeheartedly and stay in the path of righteousness.

We should dedicate our time to God. We can still have fun and enjoy TV and listen to music and everything, but don’t divide your time between God and the world because the world is a sinful place and God is sinless. God demands obedience and devotion and we can’t obey or be devoted to Him if all we do in our spare time is to praise things of this world rather than praise the Lord for His sacrifice so you could be saved. Remember that He died for ALL OF US to be saved, all we have to do is accept Him as our Lord and repent from sin.

We are in this world but let us not be of this world. As Paul wrote in Romans 12:2, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

We should stop with our idolatry of the things of this world which the Bible tells are wicked and please turn to God. Let us not be a Sunday-only type of Christian. We can’t hold hands with the devil 6 days of the week and expect to be saved only because we go to Church on Sundays. As pastor Paul Washer said, if that’s your idea of Christianity, you have no Christianity.
