Still the One

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!

  1. Isn’t that so true? As Brandon and I come upon 7 years married this week, I’ve been thinking about it, too. I love how God has grown our relationship over the years and look forward to what he’ll do next…

  2. AHHHHH! I love to see the look of true love on the faces of couples. It seems to me that you see it on the faces of newly weds and couples that have been married for many years the most. My guess is that for newly weds, well they are newly weds with all their emotions, hopes, and dreams written on their faces. For more mature couples it is a love that has grown and deepened with years of respect, compromise, and dreams of future years together. For those in the middle life is sometimes just too busy to remember to look at the other person and feel. Its nice after 30 year to still sing and feel *You’re the One* Good job Lori for helping me remember that love I have.
