I had a dress picked out to wear for Vegas. It hangs with its sparkle and sequins in my closet. Next to it I have a skirt. It is a flouncy tulle skirt that would suit a small backyard wedding. I had my sights on a small intimate backyard wedding in my friend's Ashlee and Kevin's yard. They have this lovely tree which would have made a perfect natural altar and a sweet view of the mountains. This also may not happen.
What will happen? I don't know. I have colors. I want an orange wedding with ivory and gold accents. A warm and happy color to brighten things up as the world comes back into its own after a pandemic. You know that I am not great at planning things. I get questions such as, "Do you have a date?" I should have a date shouldn't I? I don't. I have a groom. I have a minister. I have someone to walk me down the aisle and I have some people to stand beside me as I say, "I do." "I will." Because... I will. I have prayers and I have prayed. I have a mighty God who cares so much for someone like me. Was there something else I needed? Love? Prayers? Was there flowers and music that needed to be picked out? A dress... I may still need a dress. I'm not that worried.
There are probably a million little details I need to consider. I should make a checklist and cross off things one by one. I don't think I am going to do that. I think that I am going to pray, be happy and figure it out as I go along. I'm not going to stress. If I get married in a sequined Las Vegas dress, so be it. I'll still post the pictures. A wedding is only one day. A marriage is a lifetime. So, my heart is not preparing for a wedding; my heart is preparing for a marriage. My heart is preparing for the blending of a family. My heart is open to God and His beautiful plan. I mean, He hasn't steered me wrong yet. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, Praise the Lord!
