Wedding Memories

My daughter & son-in-law celebrate their wedding anniversary today!  Funny how the first thing that comes to mind when I think of her is that she's an awesome mom with 4 beautiful children, a wonderful & hard-working husband - she's a high-energy nurse, and best of all loves the Lord Jesus.

I don't think a whole lot about their wedding day.

I know she looked beautiful in her wedding dress - but, she's beautiful. Period.  Who did her hair? What earrings did she wear? Honestly, I can't even remember what the cake tasted like.

Weddings are nice. They're a celebration. But, it's the marriage that matters - not the dress & flowers & cake with all the trimmings.

Have a wonderful marriage, loving each other & building each other up as long as you live!!


  1. You are so right... marriage is the most important, but the last thing to be remembered..... love ever lasting.... sigh...

  2. A thoughtful post on what is important. The dress is only worn once, the marriage lasts forever.

  3. I wish more people remembered this. The wedding industry has made too much of the first 6 hours of a marriage. So happy for your family and the wisdom you have.

  4. What a beautiful tribute to your daughter and her family!

  5. This is soooooo wonderful! Melts my heart!

  6. Sweet post. It made me pause and think about what I remember from my own wedding day.
