Well I went to my sister’s wedding this weekend and I have to say it was an amazing event. My sister, Michelle, has a great sense of style and the wedding was infused with what I would call signature Michelle. I was most impressed with the way Michelle had the wedding orchestrated to center on worship and I did worship. Weddings are to be all about the bride and it should be to a point; really it should be about Christ our Bridegroom. Michelle’s wedding was very much a reflection of Michelle. For example Michelle is always fun and whimsical and the decorations were very fun. Hot pink, black and white were the colors. Cake and lots of ice cream for the food; ice cream is always fun. Feathers and puzzle pieces to complete the theme which was “Happily Feather After”.
Also a reflection of Michelle is that she loves to make people happy. She pays attention to the details. When we arrived at the hotel there was a gift waiting for us with a note from Michelle telling us how pleased she was to have us in her wedding. That may sound trivial to some people but it meant the world to me. That she would take the time to think of what me and what my family likes and make a special gift of drinks(coke & Dr Pepper), pop corn, candy, and a map of Orlando so I wouldn’t get lost.(Was I the only one to get the map?) This little gift really made me feel loved. My little girls ate and drank it all in about an hour but it meant a lot to me. The reception was full of dancing and fun. Michelle even shared her day with my dad presenting to my mom her rings that have been repaired so she can finally wear them again. All in all it was a great wedding and I am honored to have been part of Michelle’s wedding event. AWESOME Time!
Jean, your Mom says
Yes, it was a great wedding. I was very much aware that she was sharing her special day with me. I still look down at my rings. The diamond that your Daddy put on my finger when I was 17. Then my wedding a year later. A lot has happen since that day. A lot more than I thought about the day I said yes to your Daddy. God is in control and I’m very thankful for that. I would not have you if God had not decided to put RJ in my life forever. I would not change anything about my like. Even the hard and difficult times because I’m a better person for those times. I know who I am in God’s view and He is still teaching me who I am to Him.
Love your writings. Very happy to be you Mom.
