reflections on the day

It was an absolutely beautiful wedding. From the mass and vows, to the reception, the decorations, the dresses, the food, and fun times with family and friends. But most beautiful to be witness to the love shared by two as they partake in the sacrament of Holy Matrimony. I'll admit, I was choked up most of the mass. I can't help but remember our own marriage, and reflect on all God's goodness and blessings. Certainly we couldn't have anticipated what was to come when we said "I do," any more than Tricia and Eric can imagine what life has in store for them. It's the ultimate leap of faith, trusting in His providence and goodness. It's just a beautiful thing

A prayer of blessing:
We thank you, O God, for the Love You have implanted in their hearts. May it always inspire them to be kind in their words, considerate of feeling, and concerned for each other's needs and wishes. Help them to be understanding and forgiving of human weaknesses and failings. Increase their faith and trust in You and may Your Prudence guide their life and love. Bless their Marriage O God, with Peace and Happiness, and make their love fruitful for Your glory and their Joy both here and in eternity.

It was a beautiful wedding. I love all the pictures you posted. I'm not sure I can remember as much of our wedding as I once was able, but I do love to think about it. I would do it all over again, including the same husband. A few minor adjustments along the way, but that goes without saying. Thanks for sharing the pics. Have a great day.
