This picture is a reminder of my wedding day, you see the mother of this bride is one of my dearest and closest friends, we have been through so much together and on my wedding day she stood beside me as my husband and I became one.  We have been friends through many health scares, hard times, good times, birth of our children, various moves, I love doing life with this gal and her sweet , beautiful daughter, like mother ,like daughter.

The above picture is taken on my friends,daughters big day last October, there was nothing that was going to keep me from attending her special day, she would ask often to make sure we(my husband & I) were going to be there. It was a beautiful day and the weather cooperated. One of the things that really stood out to me was the tying of the three strands, this is taken from Ecclesiastes 4:12 “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”NIV together as the pastor read to the couple the scriptures about this and from First Corinthians 13, it was a reminder of the brides Mom reading those very same words during our wedding renewal. With God in the center of our marriage we can and will overcome any obstetrical that come our way, there is nothing we can’t face together.

The above picture is also a reminder of what it says in Isaiah 62:5 ” As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.” NIV There is an even bigger meaning in  Revelations 21:2″I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.” This is a beautiful picture of what has yet to come we all as believers (the bride-church) will be waiting for Gods return. prepared as a wedding day! Oh what a day that will be! Read all of Revelations 21 verses 1 through 8.

As honorary Aunt to this beautiful bride above, my prayers continue to be with them and their lives together as man and wife, it was a beautiful celebration, may we all prepare for our biggest wedding celebration yet the coming of God to take us home!!
