Today I have the privilege of celebrating the wedding of my good friends daughter. It is picture perfect. The wind is blowing a crisp breeze and the background is like that out of a magazine. The music and laughter are echoing throughout the venue, traveling through the trees. Children are running and playing while the adults mingle.
As I sit here and look around, love is in the air. There is such happiness and joy all around. People are full of cheer. It's a celebration .
It makes me reflect on my past. If I could give one advice what would it be? I mean, after all, I have had three failed marriages. One would think, what could I offer. Well, I used to think the same thing until God showed me love.
I would tell tell the bride and groom,"Forgive always, but most of all, Love and fall on God. Make Him your foundation." I wish I would of known then what I know today. Marriage is hard. Marriage isn't fair. Marriage is a lot of give and take. Divorce is not an option. It's a lot of compromising and giving of yourself.
There is nothing that can't be forgiven. Pride must not even be in your vocabulary. There are so many things I would do different. There are so many things I would never have done. I can't change the past. I can't take back the cruel words spoken. I can't undo the pain caused by unforgiveness. All I can do now is share what I've learned. I wish the happy couple peace, unlimited forgiveness, and love that sees past the storm. God is good and if He is the foundation, then this is a fairy tale written....JustFood4Thought
