It’s not exactly the wedding season but, it’s coming, according to the “Real Weddings Study” done by The Knot organization! Seventy-three percent of all weddings happen May to October with October the highest at 17% because of weather. But, all brides know that the season begins way before the actual day! The dresses, the attendants, the family issues and date… the venue, the flowers, the cakes, the food, and gifts… YIKES! It’s expensive, time consuming, and yet very wonderful and memorable.
Dave and I surprised everyone at our wedding as we took a hot air balloon ride away from the church; it was amazing!! A day to remember! I had my white dress and he had his top hat! Still, we are looking forward to another wedding! Another marriage, to the best love of all times! Are you excited? Making plans and doing the first works to be ready for the day? I love my earthly family with all my heart, and I’m thankful for all the blessings I have but, I am ready for Jesus, The Bridegroom to come and get His Bride, the New Jerusalem, His family of believers! Revelation 21:1-4 reminds us that we have a hope that supersedes all the darkness and pain this world has offered. The joy on this wedding day can not be measured in earthly emotions and our flight will be so much better than a hot air balloon! Keep looking up for your Bridegroom will come soon!
1 NOW I SAW A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH, FOR THE FIRST HEAVEN AND THE FIRST EARTH HAD PASSED AWAY. ALSO THERE WAS NO MORE SEA. (no conflict… no more competing kingdoms)
2 THEN I, JOHN, SAW THE HOLY CITY, NEW JERUSALEM, COMING DOWN OUT OF HEAVEN FROM GOD, PREPARED AS A BRIDE ADORNED FOR HER HUSBAND.
3 AND I HEARD A LOUD VOICE FROM HEAVEN SAYING, “BEHOLD, THE TABERNACLE OF GOD IS WITH MEN, AND HE WILL DWELL WITH THEM, AND THEY SHALL BE HIS PEOPLE. GOD HIMSELF WILL BE WITH THEM AND BE THEIR GOD.
4 AND GOD WILL WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES; THERE SHALL BE NO MORE DEATH, NOR SORROW, NOR CRYING. THERE SHALL BE NO MORE PAIN, FOR THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY.”
logYou are part of the Bride, and the Groom is coming! Believe it! He wants you!
