My grandson is getting married next June and I’ve started the process of buying and returning dresses. One down, who knows how many to go. You may say, that’s a long time from now, what’s the rush?! HA! If you have to ask that, you don’t know me very well, which you probably don’t. So let me ‘splain.
I don’t want to look like a Golden Girl reject, covered in sparkle and wrinkles, but…I also want to look festive. OK – I want sparkles too. The truth is, according to my birth certificate….which doesn’t lie, I am a golden girl; with a mind that says I’m not, and a body with two knee replacements that shouts – YES YOU ARE! There is a very fine line I’m trying not to cross here. One side is the elegant grandmother/on the other is the what-was-she-thinking grandmother.
With all the buying and returning that may be in my future, I’m wondering if I should just have it made. I’ve decided that comfort with a little sparkle thrown on it will be fine. Even no sparkle will be fine, but I’m not compromising on the comfort! When the day comes, I do know where the eyes of those attending will be focused, and no, it will not be on me. They will be on our beautiful bride, Susan, Mac’s beloved.
The Bible refers to the church as the bride of Christ, and he is the Bridegroom or the Lamb. I am part of His church… that bride. I am clothed in love, compassion and His mercy. When He calls for His bride I will meet him, and my gown will be perfect!
Revelation 19:7~Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come and his bride has made herself ready.
