A Country Wedding

In a corner of the woods, cleared of trees, brush, and poison ivy; white chairs snugged around a young maple tree. Twine stretched from tree to tree with the bride and groom's names printed on black flags. The sister of the bride drew a sign for the entrance in whimsical lettering -- "Choose a seat not a side, we're all family once the knot is tied." The weather cooperated, hot but no rain.

The bride and her maids carried wildflowers and the groom and boys wore suspenders and bowties. The tiny flower girl learned to walk just in time for the special day. A magical wooded fairyland in place, the couple exchanged vows and were pronounced husband and wife.

The day my daughter married the man she loves overflowed with beauty. Both have survived trials and tribulation. Both have children. Both wore huge smiles. Not only did they tie the knot, the groom gave his life to Jesus that morning. As mom of the bride, I was thrilled. I ask that you pray with me as they move forward in life, that their marriage will be blessed with peace, love, trust, and a large amount of faith. Congratulations Maggie and Michael!
