HeartBreaking: Minutes Before Wedding, Bride Grabs Groom’s Shaky Hand, Realizes Truth About Man She’s Marrying

After months of preparation, your wedding day dawns. You excitedly prepare for the marriage ceremony, confident you know everything about the heart and character of the person you’re about to commit to for life.

Any engaged couple with a healthy view of reality (take off those rose-colored lenses, folks), will admit that on some level, at some point, hints of doubt about the decision to marry begin to creep in. We find ourselves maybe 98% sure we should marry this person, but what if we are wrong — what if we are making a huge mistake?

Moments before a North Carolina bride named Maggie Earwood walked down the aisle, she found out exactly what type of man she was marrying. Her soon-to-be-husband, U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Caleb Earwood, decided that before any ceremony could take place, there was one thing he needed to take care of.

He needed to pray with his soon-to-be wife. And he needed to do it now.

The heartfelt moment was captured by wedding photographer Dwayne Schmidt, who admitted he could barely keep his composure amid the weepy eyes and overwhelming love that poured out into the room. “As soon as their hands touched he started getting emotional,” Schmidt recalled of the scene.

Per wedding tradition, the couple refrained from looking at one another before the marriage ceremony. They grasped hands, facing away from each other with eyes closed, while Caleb Earwood asked for God’s blessing over their marriage.

“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 in an interview with TODAY. “I prayed to God for my beautiful and intelligent wife that he blessed me with, and the amazing family I was marrying into.”

The moment Maggie grabbed her groom’s hand, she knew exactly what type of marriage she was in for. And her heart was absolutely bursting with joy.

“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.”

Maggie couldn’t hold back the tears that welled in her eyes, and neither could the wedding party. “There were no dry eyes in the room,” she expressed.

The photographer and the newlyweds never expected the stunning photo to become an internet sensation, but they certainly don’t mind that it did. “We’re thankful that our picture is able to bless so many people and touch that many hearts,” Caleb smiled.

Neither he nor his mother could believe it.

Unbelievable: Teen Cashier Buys Cop’s Dessert. When Couple Behind Cop Throws Fit, Teen Never Expects What’s Next

Have you ever done something that you thought was nice, but then got in trouble for it? Unfortunately when that happens it can have a negative impact, making people hesitant to do nice things in the future.

One Texas teen will definitely think twice about doing an act of kindness in the future. What started out as a thoughtful gesture ended in the teen running into some trouble.

UPDATE: For the first time since my post on July 5, the Company reached out to Zack on Wed July 12 to offer a verbal apology, offered to pay for the hours he was scheduled during the suspension, and hoped he would return to work. Zack returned the call and left a message asking if he could receive a written apology (for reference, if needed for future employment). He has not heard back from them or received a written statement at this time.
My Son works at Katy Mills Mall and on Sunday evening an on duty Police Officer walked up to the counter and placed his order. My son offered to pay for his cookie with his own money. The officer was grateful said thank you and walked away…..

The next family walked up and said “are you going to buy mine too?” My son replied with “I’m sorry I bought his because he is wearing a badge”…… then this customer started verbally attacking him, calling my son a racist, & threatened to beat him up. His wife threatened to go back there and slap him.. The middle aged man sat down his little daughter and tried to come behind the counter to attack him. Thankfully his coworker defused the situation. The man then said “I will get you fired”.

As soon as this man started the attack my son, he stepped back and walked away… he said very little to this man.
on Monday he received a text stating that he was to bring all of his “stuff” the next day for a meeting with his manager and upper manager.
Tuesday he walks in with all his stuff. He was told the upper managers want him fired. Thankfully his manager refused and said you are an excellent worker and and everyone agreed that you did nothing wrong (The day before this situation he was offered a $2 an hour raise and management) He then started his normal scheduled shift. He worked 2-3 hours , when he was called into the back room where she had written him up. It says “he bought a cookie for a police officer and a customer wanted to physically fight him” it does state “if this happens again he will be terminated.” Then she stated after todays shift you will be on a 1 week suspension……. REALLY (he did finish off his shift)

Since when does buying a police officer a cookie give anyone else a reason to attack someone. And when did a Corporation want to FIRE someone for being KIND, taking what a customer said or did, regardless of how hateful they are.

Zack Randolph is an 18-year-old employee at Great American Cookies. When a police officer came by to pick up some dessert, Randolph had an idea.

He told the officer that he wanted to pay for his treat, as a way of saying thanks for everything that he does. Randolph pulled out his wallet and paid the $2.75, not even taking advantage of the employee discount.

“He’s just a really nice guy and on top of that he has a badge,” he said. “That’s enough for me to buy him something. That’s the least I can do.”

Randolph was feeling good about what he had done until the next customers came up to the counter. The man and woman asked for free desserts and gave him a hard time because he’d extended his act of goodwill to the cop and not to them, too.

Randolph’s mother said that the couple was very confrontational. According to her, the man told her son, “You know you’re probably going to get fired.”

“He put his daughter down and came around to the side and was about to come back and come at me and thankfully my assistant manager and my co-worker stopped him,” said Randolph. The trouble didn’t end there, though.

The teen was written up and received a week-long suspension from work. Neither he nor his mother could believe it.

Randolph’s mom, Tami, posted about the incident on Facebook. People were outraged at the story, and demanded justice.

It wasn’t long before the company issued an apology for their uncalled-for actions. The suspension was revoked, and they admitted that Randolph had been in the right.

It is unfortunate that this incident occurred when a teen was just trying to show his respect for law enforcement. “A lot of people I know my age don’t support police officers. I don’t think it’s fair,” said Randolph.

It’s difficult to understand how some people can be so selfish and unkind, but we’re happy this young man was recognized for his graciousness. Keep being a light!
