Looking For Somthing?

Wedding Bells Echoing

Just as the fireflies start to wake up and begin to dance, there was a rustling in the wood. A drum was heard as the people gathered there. 

A stunning man, clad in wonder began the heart beat of what was expected to be the union of two souls. 

Friends came up from the walls of wild flowers and tree trunks standing like columns hidden with joy-carrying, following the beat of the love.

Strings were playing like the kiss of the breeze.

Beauty was in the air for the taking and eyes as springs could be seen as one looked out at the faces of the gathered.  Them men with drums, the maidens with glowing lanterns.

This was the wedding. Our wedding. 

When the last friend came into the circle and melody heightened a girl could be seen carried on a horse-startled by joy, wearing a white dress with a look of longing in her eyes. 

The man with the drum came up to get her and there in the heart of the trees they poured themselves out to each other with love looking on. The threads of their souls entwined as feet were washed and songs sung. Sealed with a much longed for kiss they couldn't help but twirl and dance in  utter delight. 

Heaven watched, and could be felt as something so sacred and beautiful was laughing in colors of a priceless wonder. The trees spread their branches like a chuppa of mystery. And God smiled.

They now were each others. Forever.

The party just continued in a big red barn, dancing, eating, laughing. A bon fire was started and a drum circle was gathered as the bride and her friends danced and spun around the flames singing their love and joy in the Beautiful One who kissed the day with perfection. 

Thank you Jesus for the best wedding I could have ever dreamed of. You are so fun.

My Life According To A Card Board Box

Wow. I'm laying here on my IKEA futon bed with my cat curled up at my feet, the morning sun sweetly shining in my room. Well, at least it used to be my room. Now it more resembles one of the display rooms at a furniture store. Everything that made it mine is now stored in a card board box in my garage awaiting loading into a moving cubicle. 

I found my self feeling strange as I stretched packing tape across my last box yesterday. Lifting  onto the stack of 17 other boxes I thought, "I don't want this to be the last box. This is it, things will never be the same." At the same time, "I'm going spend the rest of my life with this man, who has become my best and closest friend, the lover of my heart and the husband of my dreams. WOOOHOOOO BABY!" 

The weird part is that I can have both of these emotions at the very same time. "Yeah baby, I gettin' hitched to my dream guy!' and "Oh my gosh, no, this can't be my last box. Maybe if I find something else to pack this really won't be happening. I won't be leaving but I'll still be getting married." 

Ha! Bless my heart.  So much change and transition has kissed me in the past year that a part of my heart is getting used to it. But, the excitement I feel to be with my Love for always and the freaking outness I feel for leaving in such a permanent way my folks is a very interesting set of emotions I've been examining inside myself. 

Being a drama queen doesn't help either!

So, as I set off on this adventure I am anticipating the joy I will revel in as I'm comforted with the thought that I won't take another journey without a hand to hold, his hand.

What's With the Veil?

Can you make a traditional thing-nontraditional? I think so. 

For me a wedding veil is just a cool thing. I mean many of us pretend from itty-bitty to wear a veil while playing dress up. All of a sudden the once lacy curtain or sheer runner on mom's table becomes the mystical, fairy tale wedding veil that you imagine to flutter and float as you glide down the aisle to you groom. Then, your thoughts and imaginations are interrupted by the call to come eat macaroni and cheese. 

Now you're about to get married-and you find yourself slightly "hippie-fied" with the tendency to lean more to the extreme and un-ordinary at the same time you want some sort of veil. 

What are you going to do? 

First off-don't feel the pressure to be "un-traditional" in everything. If there is something you really want-DO IT! It's your day and you should determine what you do and don't want. A concept or set idea shouldn't lead your decisions. YOU should let your decisions lead your visions and ideas. 

Think up some funky crazy ways you can shape your veil, incorporating your personality etc.! Experiment and have fun!
