         Did you ever go to a wedding and just observe the Bride and the Groom closely?  Today, i did just that very thing.  Oh, to be sure…the Bride was beautiful and full of smiles; and she looked the picture of what a Bride should look like.  Youth, beauty, joy and excitement poured forth from her face as she, who is normally very shy, looked everyone in the eye and took her vows.  This was her testiment to her pledge of love and commitment.

          The Groom also looked young and full of love and pride in the bride of his choosing.  There were awkward moments in the ceremony…such as a very loud train rumbling by the church…just as the bride was speaking her vows. Then, they did some wonderfully, unique things in their ceremony.  They took communion during the ceremony which was lovely.  The poor bride got a larger piece of the bread put into her mouth by her groom; which took her several minutes to chew and swallow…which caused her to be somewhat embarassed and caused some good natured laughter in the crowd.

          Part of the unique ceremony took place when the bride was given in marriage by her father to her groom; at that point…the bride and groom took the elevated platform in the front of the church; and the minister then, came out into the congregation and stood with his back towards the back of the church…he faced the bride and groom; who stood facing the spectators.  This viewpoint gave the advantage of watching the bride and groom as they spoke their vows, lit the candles, and smiled into each other’s eyes as they whispered affectionetly to one another.  Then, the groom played the guitar while one of his groomsmen sang a tribute to their love for one another.

           All in all, it was a trusting, loving, innocent step into the future as husband and wife…not knowing what the future holds for them…just knowing that they were taking the beginning step forward, together!  Hopeful for a lifetime journey.

         On Saturday, a couple was having a special day; they were getting married in an outdoor ceremony.  During the ceremony, a man and his companion (female) were swimming in the water near the area of the wedding ceremony.

           While the wedding was ongoing the man in the water got angry and was making it known to the bride and groom.  They finished saying their vows only to be shot by the man who had gone to his car and retreived a gun.  The alledged shooter’s name is Patrick Paul Duvall.

           Duvall also shot a wedding guest and a bystander.  The bride and groom, Melissa and Mike Beavers are in the hospital in critical condition.  The wedding guest is still in the hospital but the bystander was released.  Duvall escaped in a stolen vehicle and was apprehended.  The police were told by the wedding attendees that no one knew this Patrick Paul Duvall.  The reason for his aggression seems to be unknown.  I haven’t heard any word about his companion and her role in the attack.

          When most people say their wedding vows…the phrase, til death do we part is usually included.  How many of us stop and really think about that phrase?  May God bless this couple and heal them completely so that they can continue on their life-long journey as a married couple.

         Nick and Mariah sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G, first comes love, then come marriage; at least that is the reported rumor all over the net.  Nick Cannon is a rap singer and he and Mariah Carey have been seeing each other for a little over a month.  Supposedly, this past Wednesday they got married in the new home that Mariah bought in the Bahamas.  It was alledgedly a small intimate wedding with just a few friends and family present.

          But, if you think the next phrase of the song; then comes a baby carriage, applies to Miss Mariah Carey Cannon, you have not heard what she said recently.  She supposedly said that her dog was enough for her.  🙂  Since there are also rumors that there was no prenuptial agreement, I hope that there is no custody fight if all doesn’t go well in the land of love.

          Update May 08, 2008:  Today it is official…Mariah and Nick have confirmed their marriage to People magazine.  They have tatoo’s as well to celebrate their forever love. Mariah said that they have talked about having children.  She says that is a part of the whole reason to get married.  Well, this must be serious…everyone knows that tatoo’s are forever…unless you have alot of money and a high pain tolerance and are willing to endure a little discomfort to have them removed!   Congrats Mariah and Nick…may your marriage last till the end of time.

dsc02003.jpgdsc02014.jpgdsc01996.jpgdsc01996.jpg      The day was bright, breezy, and full of sunshine today.  Took lots of pictures of the kids at different outdoor locations.  It was fun.  We had a good time and the kids look great.  I realized last week…that i have been falling down big time in the picture taking department.

      So, i took quite a few.  The kids weren’t like really dressed up or anything at all…but they are more like candid shots. (more…)

      Finally, an end to this week.  Thank God it is Friday!  Seems like nothing but crazy stuff all this week.  Crazy schedules…crazy out of the ordinary things…i am just soooooo very glad…that the weekend is here.

     I have a family wedding to attend this weekend.  I am even going to help serve the food.  So, it will be nice.  One of the teens in our youth group is welcoming friends of her’s from out of state this weekend.  They went to Africa, this summer, together on a mission’s trip.  They will only be here for the weekend. 

      This weekend is also going to be crazy busy…but ….somehow it just feels better to say Friday is here.  Yeah. (more…)
