Our son got married last Saturday. With a beautiful ceremony in a beautiful place on a beautiful day, two beautiful people bound their lives together.
I wish I had a better picture to share, but until I do this one will have to do.
We are especially blessed to be gaining not only a daughter (Sarah), but a sweet adorable granddaughter as well (Rayne). One of the most moving parts of the ceremony was when Will vowed to take Rayne as his own daughter. He called her over, bent down and handed her a necklace (which was a gift from me to Cherie many years ago) and announced his love for her.
We’re filled with joy for Will, Sarah and Rayne and we hope and pray they’ll be showered with blessings and love.
For Cherie and I it is naturally bittersweet. Even as we share in the joy of our son, we are reminded of how quickly his childhood seemed to have passed.
And now, as grandparents and in-laws, we step further down the path to which our journey has brought us.
May it keep leading us to happy places.
