A Day I Will Never Forget

Sometimes I truly wonder how we arrive at certain events in life so quickly.  I had one of those "events" recently when my baby girl became a wife.  It is a day in life that is truly etched in my mind to happily remember.  The ONLY negative that took place is that it proceeded far too quickly for me.  There were definitely things that I have thought of since the BIG DAY that I wish I would've done and kind of make me a bit sad, but I choose not to dwell there. I choose to think of how beautiful my little girl looked and the radiance that shone from her because she carries the HOLY SPIRIT in her soul.  I choose to think of the cuteness in my son-in-law's face when he saw his bride walking towards him to become his wife.  I choose to think of the God inspired words that were proclaimed over this marriage and the beautiful wedding vows that were exchanged between two of God's children that He arranged to be married in covenant to Him.  I choose to think of the joy that I had that day of seeing the godly beauty in the bride's attendants and the humility and love that they have for my daughter.  I choose to think of the most wonderful weaving that our Father does in orchestrating relationships that bring glory that is due Him.  I choose to be in awe and wonder of God and that He gives underserving gifts to bring joy and happiness to His children.  That day was truly one of His BEST gifts to me and I am thankful.
