Wedding notes

16 Jun

First off you can see all the pictures that many of us took prior to, during and after the wedding at this link.

The wedding was nothing short of magnificent and went off right on time at 4:30! God truly showed His hand on June 13, 2009. The weather forecast was for overcast and cloudy with intermittent showers. We watched the storms stay north of Milford, Indiana all day long. David and Sarah would see each other prior to the wedding in a private moment before the pre-wedding pictures at 1:30. David waited for his bride on the family dock while she walked the distance of the back yard. Of course we all watched the private moment from a distance which the pictures prove. It was exciting to see David’s eyes as he saw her beauty.
We all then left to have the pre-wedding photos taken at 2:00 with God holding off the rain. Just as we finished the photo shoot, the skies started to shed the light tears of joy celebrating the festivities.
We returned to the Millers home and watched the skies and the radar. Lavone Miller, Davids father assured us all that the weather in Indiana would change and that the rain would blow out. Sure enough, after much prayer, God stopped the light tears of joy celebrating the festivities at 4:00 just in time for many hands to dry the chairs and welcome the guests.
The music started, the mothers entered the scene at the arm of their sons, Becky with Jeremy and Mary with the Groom David.
The bridesmaids entered escorted by young men that all mothers would be proud of.

Flashback to Friday evening — Prior to the wedding rehearsal, Sarah surprised me with a song that I used to sing to her when she was a little girl. The song was written and sung by Steve and Annie Chapman. As we stood at the porch door waiting to walk the grassy aisle for practice the music started and it wasn’t the wedding march. She looked up at me and said ” does that song sound familiar daddy?” I listened and of course, could not hold back the tears. It was “Our” song ” You’re the only little girl in my heart”.

Back to the wedding
Then I had the privileged to escort my beautiful daughter down the perfectly manicured lawn of Lavone Miller into the waiting hands of the man that God chose for her to spend the rest of her life with. It was with great joy and excitement that when asked “who gives this bride to be married”, I said the words, ” Her mother and I”, because I knew that all was in Gods hands.


What a beautiful wedding it was!

    Ok, I’m reading this blog and when I came to your song, I started to tear up. Of course right then the phone here at work rang and I had to pull myself together by the 2nd ring – IMPOSSIBLE – It was a very beautiful wedding. Rog, when I saw you whip out your hanky and blow your nose, it could have been daddy standing there. Love you!
