World Cup soccer star and devout Christian Ella Masar recently married her Houston Dash teammate Erin McLeod. She wrote an article about her experience in which she quoted the bible:

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

But after receiving homophobic comments on a family photo she posted, Masar was forced to defend herself from haters once again. But this time she accompanied her message with a beautiful wedding photo:

“For all the congratulations, love, and support thank you. Erin and I feel overwhelmed and blessed with everyone that has reached out… Also, to the “other” messages, thank you. Thank you for praying for me and reinforcing my own prayers because as you pray, “Lord please help Ella, allow her to see her sin for loving that woman, for respecting her, being faithful, honoring her, etc …” Know I am saying the same thing, “My Heavenly Father, thank you for allowing me find my better half, for finding someone that strengthens my faith and allows me to be the person I always imagined. Thank you for teaching me what truly loving someone and others is all about, amen.”
