Marrying Day Dress
My wedding dress.
My oldest granddaughter modeled it for me. I had saved it for 39 years and thus far, I don't think anyone I had saved it for desired it, except as a souvenir of a special dress Mom wore.Our oldest granddaughter, not yet at an age where she is interested in boys but excited by dress-up expressed an interest in it.She modeled it for me and also allowed me to talk about my marrying day to her Grandpa, 39 years ago.Barefoot and wearing a pair of gloves a kind man and owner of an antique store gave her, she posed in front of the garden overflowing with the fireweed her grandpa treasures for his honeybees.
My marrying day dress, special to me because I wore it the day I gave myself to my beloved.I pray my grandchildren remember they are special to Him, and they give their love in marriage ( and only in marriage) to one who loves Him.A simple prayer and request for the grandchildren I love. Should God grant it, they will know a life full of blessings and true joy. "Let marriage be held in honor among all..."Hebrews 13:4
