Our Daughter. Our Son-in-Law.

Two years ago this evening, our daughter walked down the very long aisle of our church. A smile on her face. Her groom waiting at the front of the church. A side glance here and there to see all of their friends, all of their relatives, all of their parents’ friends…gathered together from near and far.

Gathered together in the sight of God to celebrate love and commitment…

“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

 Matthew 18:20

King James Version

Surrounded by close friends and our daughter’s much loved “little cousins”, the photos to capture the memories were carefully taken. As her parents, we were filled with joy over this moment in time.

“To everything there is a season, a time to every purpose under heaven.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1

King James Version

Music and friends filled the reception with the fullness of happiness and laughter. The band played on and on.  My husband welcomed our guests. There were a few tears from both of us. The groom danced with his mother. The bride danced with her father. Our close friend had known the bride since she was born. He gave a truly heartfelt prayer. The dinner and the party began. Fun and friends!

 

“These things I have spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.”

John 15:11

King James Version

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
