It’s June. The month best known for weddings. Last night I went to a wedding. The wedding of all weddings. The biggest, most beautiful wedding I’ve ever witnessed. More than likely most Tulsans have ever witnessed.
From the outdoor ceremony on the greens at Southern Hills to the sit down dinner to the dancing, no detail was left unfinished. Everywhere you looked there were beautiful floral arrangements and photos depicting memories of shared love. It was a true celebration of love. Love of the precious couple. Love of family and friends. And the love of Christ.
We were friends of the bride. Not that the groom wasn’t equally as loved. We just did not have a history. It was the wedding of a long time friend of our family, one of my youngest daughter’s soccer teammates for years through growing up.
The young couple are on their way to a lifetime of shared memories. They already have a firm foundation of what love truly is. Through their families. And friends. And faith. It doesn’t get any better than that.
I sit here with a tear in my eye and a smile on my face as I recollect last night. As I recollect the memories I share with this family. Weddings will do that to you. They rekindle what love is truly about in your heart. And your soul.
They stir your faith to believe in God’s perfect love. They restore your hope in humanity. But more than anything they fill you with love. You cannot leave a wedding, this wedding in particular, without feeling the love. The love between husband and wife. The love between family and friends. And most of all, the love of Christ.
Congratulations Alexa and Tye! Thank you for including me in your celebration of love! ♡ It was a little piece of heaven here on earth. I love you!
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
Love and laughter,
