Our Niece's Wedding

Weddings always make me think of God, because He ordained this blessed event. And it is a beautiful earthly picture with a heavenly meaning. It is a symbol of how we are the bride and He is the bridegroom, when we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. We never have to worry about divorce, because He will never leave us nor forsake us! Isn't that a great comfort and a wonderful blessing?

The love that we see in the eyes of the couple when we attend a wedding also reminds me of the love our Lord has for us. He says that we are the "apple of His eye"!

When we love someone we want to spend our entire lives with them,...and we say we will love them for all eternity. This is the way our Lord loves us, and when He promises us eternity with Him, we can rest assured that it will happen.

Our niece was such a beautiful bride. We loved seeing her so happy and so much in love! She was surrounded by her friends and family on her special day,...by all of us who love her. We hope that Lilian and Shawn will live happily ever after,...and that the Love of Jesus will be in their marriage forever and always. This is our prayer for them.

They released butterflies into the sky during their wedding and it was so pretty to see them being set free to fly off together. Isn't God wonderful to give us a soul mate to share our lives with? Someone to flutter through life with us? We serve and awesome God! A God of Love!!!
