It was a special day and as understated as it sounds, that is exactly what it was. Our ever-expanding tribe convened beneath the trees to support our young couple in their marriage and celebrate that which is the glory and joy of family. There were reunions, hugs, kisses and introductions. There were blessings, speeches, tears, applause and good wishes. Most importantly, my daughter and her new husband were cocooned the entire day and evening in love.
I'll share a few pictures (but only a few because she hasn't even seen them yet) and my wishes for the newlyweds.
My wishes for you in your life as a married couple:
That the love you have for one another will sustain you and grow with each passing year;
You will be the soft place to fall for one another;
That you will have more joy than pain; but when the winds of adversity breeze through, you will seek the lessons, and your bond will be strengthened
Most importantly, my deepest wish is that you will hold the hand of your beloved, wrinkled and weathered with time and experience; and you will have the privilege of growing old together.
