TSMSS - A Special Wedding

'Tis the season of weddings and this evening we will attend the wedding of the daughter of some friends of ours. The mom and I were roommates for almost a year back in our single days. Both of us were nurses and we met in the choir at the church we both attended. (She was just starting to date the man she would marry, and as a result of being in that group of friends who sang in the choir and went to lunch after church each week, I met my man.) It's a little surreal to realize that their middle daughter, who just graduated from college, is getting married.

My songs today are in honor of her wedding. The first one is a sweet song that Michael W. Smith sings that isn't quite as well known as Bob Carlisle's Butterfly Kisses or Steven Curtis Chapman's Cinderella, but it is a touching song of a father who is sifting through memories and wondering how to let go of his precious girl.

This second one is a beautiful old hymn that you rarely hear sung at weddings anymore but which is a wonderful prayer.

Congratulations to J & E! May God bless your marriage with His perfect Love!

Join me at Amy's for more songs.

Enjoy your festivities today!

The Michael W. Smith song made me cry; how touching and perfect for a wedding. Enjoy the wedding tonight. It's amazing how fast the kids grow up. I'm sure you remember when you and your friend were in nursing school like it was yesterday.

Blessings and love,

I wasn't familiar with that Michael W. Smith song, what a sweet one.

Happy Friday!
