Weddings…hopefully a special time….no matter how long you have known the person you are marrying..it is a moment when you make a promise in front of God, perhaps family and friends… saying that you are committing to share the REST of your life with that person.

It should not be taken lightly..it should be a decision that comes to becoming a reality 100_0460_editedbecause of knowing the other person is your soulmate.  it should not be to make a statement to the world that you can marry whomever… or a feeling that you are being forced to make the promise when your knowings and feelings are not agreeing that you should. Marriage is a time for new beginnings.  This weekend we are going to watch one of our nieces become a wife to a man she loves.It was so neat witnessing our kids marry the person of their dreams… their soul mates…

Weddings need to be personalized…

and she has worked with her fiancé to make this a wedding that fits their personalities—their life.

It is a special day, and it is a moment of life changing decisions… but those life changing decisions can be made in any environment. It is the promise the two people are making that matters. I have driven by weddings where people have a number of Limos, what appears to be 20 or so people in their wedding party, dresses that look like they cost each bridesmaid well over 200.00 a piece… I have heard people say they want to have a fairy tale wedding… I understand that in a way—the fantasy of a little girl—never let go of and trying to make it real.  But in reality—it is that few seconds when each says their vow to the other…when each says I DO…. that is what matters.

So for our niece..I hope she100_4078 takes time to enjoy the moment of commitment..and that she knows that everything else will be as it will be. We can not plan the weather…we can not predict who will be there or not….we can not predict a lot… but we can predict that before the sunsets on Saturday evening..she will be Mrs..and not Miss or Ms…

I love romantic ..happy ….endings.  Love to all. Mrs Justa alias Cindy
