It’s been a few years since I’ve been to a wedding. Most of our friends / family are married and starting families, so we attend more baby showers and birthday parties these days. This weekend, something made me reminisce about weddings.
One of my favorite parts of a wedding is the moment when the groom sees his bride as she makes her way down the aisle toward him. In that moment, it’s like there is no one else in the room. The love the bride and groom share is so clear on both their faces. I remember that moment in my own wedding. It was so overwhelming that a single tear trickled down my cheek until Scott wiped it away.
How Beautiful the radiant bride
Who waits for her Groom with His light in her eyes
You may be wondering what made me think of weddings this weekend. We were in Canadian having an early Christmas celebration. Sunday morning, the choir performed their Christmas Cantata. Scott’s mom had a solo. As she sang, I noticed Scott’s dad watching her with a look that I can only describe as being full of love. Orleans put it best:
Still the one — that’s my better half
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one
You’re still the one — that makes me strong
Still the one — I want to take along
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one (yes you are)
I hope Scott still looks at me like when we’ve been married 38 years.
The Cantata and our Christmas celebration was great! I will post some pictures soon!
