Wedding Day





Here we are…
About to walk
Through a door
We have rehearsed
A thousand times before
In thought,
But now Thought watches
As our feet follow a path
Not of fantasy
But of faith
And reality
Shaping
Memory

Here we are…
About to embark
On a day
We will remember
As long as God
Grants us life
For today
If the Lord wills,
Robyn becomes our son
As our daughter
Emily
Becomes
His wife

 We welcome you to rejoice with us in thought and prayer today as we celebrate Rob and Emily’s marriage.

I long to tread slowly across this Sweet Day
To gather its gold before Time claims its prey
Dear God, bless and keep us and let this day be
When night slips upon it, a dear memory

  1. I somehow knew there would be a poem/prayer this morning. When most mothers of the bride would be fussing and wondering if all things are in place, there you are dedicating your day to God. You inspire me with your words and your spirit, Janet. Go forth and bask in this day. Congratulations for stepping into another season of life and special congratulations to Emily and Rob. My prayers are with you all.

  2. Glynis, your daughter is going to capture the day in pictures. I said a special prayer for her this morning and I want to thank-you for being such a dear friend. It's a roller-caster of laughter and tears at our house this morning(mostly laughter;). I'm returning to hair-makeup central now. See you next week.
