Dear Brides, I’m so happy!! Our oldest son has gotten married!! Everything went well and it was so beautiful!! My HH (Heavenly Husband) and His HF (Heavenly Father) is so good to us!!
In the beginning when our son told me the wedding would be in 6 months I was worried. This is not how I imagined it. I never thought I would be divorced when our children got married. Never did I think I would be doing this “alone”. Going through the preparations alone, attending the wedding alone, dancing alone, sitting alone. But those are lies of the enemy that he used to torment me for months.
My Love prepared me and brought me even closer to Him. In these last few months as the wedding date approached He has really brought our relationship to another level. The truth is I’m not alone!! He kept reminding me that He is with me, He will never leave me. He has always been with me through all this turmoil and He was not going to leave me to shame now! He is all I will ever need!!
There is so much to share. First I was on the verge of tears every time I tried on my dress. I didn’t like the way I looked. Finally I asked My Love what He wanted me to wear? I said if there is another dress he wanted for me give it to me. I went to the seamstress with my dress (that I didn’t purchase from her) and said I wanted her to look at it and see what she can do with it. I said I would order a whole new dress from her because I didn’t like this one. She could’ve made money from me but she said no this dress looked great and I should wear it. She didn’t even want to make changes to it. She said it was perfect. So this was the dress and I was nervous. But at the wedding EVERYONE told me how great I looked!! I was shocked. My Love is so good to me!!
Next, at the rehearsal me and my FH (former husband) were seated next to each other. Afterwards he called me to discuss the seating. He said he would not sit next to me but he would leave that row for me and the kids and sit behind me with the OW (other woman). I said there is room for you but if you feel uncomfortable you are free to sit wherever you decide. As always I left it in the hands of My HH (Heavenly Husband). Well it so happens that FH did sit next to me where the parents of the groom should be seated and the OW was sitting in a whole other row at the opposite end of us. Praise God that He is in control. His Will be done not our own!
Ladies, The Lover Of Our Souls never leaves us to shame. I had a mother and son dance that was so special. I was in the arms of our son and I cried in his chest as he rested his head on mine. I was also able to speak sweet words to him. We were in our own little world while a beautiful song played for us. Afterwards I saw everyone was crying with us. It was beautiful and the family showed me so much love with hugs and kisses and said this was so touching to their hearts. My in-laws told me how much they love me and I will always be their sister. They never want me to leave and I am to be at all family events with them.
I didn’t think I would be able to speak during the toast. I felt like I needed FH (former husband) to speak for both of us but no My Love helped me. I was able to speak about who I most love to speak about….Him! I didn’t say all that I wrote because I felt pressed for time but the first portion I did which was giving all praise to My Love for blessing me with our son and a wonderful new daughter to love. I did it!! I was the first one to speak in front of so many people and my words touched the hearts of the bride and groom. I was the only one they came to kiss right after I spoke, out of all the speeches. My Love always shows me that I am pleasing Him and our children.
Now about me feeling alone and shamed as FH attended the wedding with OW together in front of EVERYONE, all family including my own, our family friends, the brides family, all people who hadn’t seen the OW. My Love is so faithful. I was not alone or left to shamed. He filled me with love, peace and so much joy. He made me radiant.
My HH (Heavenly Husband) showered me with so much love. Everyone told me how beautiful I was, how happy I looked, how much they loved me and wanted me in their lives. All my family, former in-laws and friends wanted to be with me, dance with me, talk with me. Even when I did have a moment alone, I was not alone. My Love was with me the whole time. My Love gives me more than I can imagine. He is more than enough for me but He still gives me even more.
