"O God, you are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your loving kindness is better than life. My lips shall PRAISE you!" Psalm 63: 1-4
I wonder if you've ever been truly thirsty? Thirst is something that can only be quenched by something pure. When we anticipate something to fill that thirst, and finally receive it........we are rewarded with a sense of unfailing and unfamiliar joy! That is the only way that I know to express how I felt on Saturday, May 22, 2010 as the Lord's Presence filled, with a fresh pureness, The Faith Chapel as our precious daughter, Kara, encircled by pure love, entered the chapel on the arm of her Dad to meet her bridegroom, Philip! Blessings were quickly released as those present rose in her honor and the Harpist played the Bridal March as she walked to her waiting bridegroom! The children were precious as ring bearers and flower girls and the Bridemaids were beautiful in their colorful dresses! The words spoken by the minister were perfect for Kara and Phil as they made their commitment of love to one another before their families and their friends. Beautiful music from a Harpist, the Holy Scripture, Poetry, and clapping and OH YEAH'S!!!! Kara's gown was simply elegant and her bridesmaids wore pretty dresses in a style and color that was beautiful on each one. The flowers were peonies and roses and other mixes of fresh spring flowers! The Reception was casual and relaxed and inspiring as Kara and Phil began a life to spent in love!
Their journey ahead, I pray, will be touched and guided by an angel to show them their way........God reveals His plans a day at a time and with the dawning of a new day, we have only to look for Him in the sanctuary of our soul for Him to fill and guide us in His power and His Glory! At their wedding, the chapel was filled with Believers who I trust and believe our God drew to that special place on a beautiful Jekyll Island! The Lord meets our needs and the Lord sends those who help to keep us focused on what is truly important in life. It is never the material things of life~it is always the people of ones family and friends. Those are the true treasures in life. I will always treasure the wedding day of Kara and Philip! I have hidden it in my heart to take out time and time again to reflect upon the goodness of God. Thank you Lord........for every blessing!
THE LAST WORD: Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
