Fragrant Aroma: Marry Me

Photo from White Lace Wedding

This week I had the privilege of sitting with a newly engaged young woman who will be married in less than 5 months.  She asked me to be her wedding coordinator, something I enjoy doing for close friends and their grown daughters.  It was another one of those moments providing me a window where I  can look out and enjoy the present view, but also with a view looking back 32 years to when I was sitting in her place.

Planning a wedding is what every girl dreams of.  It is the time when one man has captured your heart, and as a result, you know your life will never be the same.  The anticipation is constant and the joy is nearly tangible.

We have watched older singles wait for the right one to come along, and entered into their joy when it finally happened.  And we’ve watched young adults, barely old enough to vote, find their life’s mate, who marry young and succeed.  On the contrary we’ve watched many couples struggle seemingly non-stop for years in their marriage.  But one thing is sure – God is the author of all marriages, whether He is acknowledged or not.  Marriage was His idea!  He created it.  He is glorified by it.  And He alone can help those struggling to find their pace.  This is why we blog – to help marriages become all God intends for it to be.

As I sat in my hairstylists chair this week, with Tom sitting two chairs down, we heard a song on the radio by Train titled, Marry Me.  If I had it to do all over again – I would still say yes!  With all the ups and downs and hardships along the way, Tom knows me best and loves me still!  This amazing fact causes my heart to glorify God for all He has done!

Take some time to watch the video and reflect back on how your love began.  Then, share your story with us!  Something is rekindled in our hearts as we retell the story of how our love began, when we heard (or said) these two precious words, Marry Me!  I will never forget that day.  Enjoy…

    I’m recently married, and I you’re absolutely right about it being a day that every girl dreams about. I’m lucky to have had an amazing wedding day, and I hope to one day get where you are, able to help others plan theirs and to have 30+ years of a happy marriage under my belt.
    Beautiful website.
