Rainy Wedding Afternoon...

Weddings are a joyous and blessed event when family and friends come together to celebrate 2 people joining in a sacred union. The date has been set for the picture perfect outdoor wedding and then... it rains. Not only rains but pours. What now? You wait to see if the rain will let up. The guests are indoors anticipating the ceremony, outside the chairs are drenched and you would think this would be enough to drive any bride to be to pieces.


Not at this wedding. Guests came out with umbrellas and a smile and welcomed the bride to be down the aisle as she elegantly walked through the rain as if it were blessings from above. Minutes later as the happy couple exchanged their vows, the clouds literally parted and the sun shone down on them. 

"And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow."
~Gilbert K. Chesterton
