Mary was a fit of nerves the whole week before her wedding. No second thoughts or anything crazy, she was just nervous.
Miguel was nothing but ready. Standing tall and strong like usual, Miguel was straight up suave in his suit as he gathered his things to head to the church to marry the love of his life.
The girls hustled in a bustle of tulle, curls and lip gloss as they arrived a few minutes late to Cornerstone Christian Worship Center. The chapel. Where the bells were already ringing.
As Mary finally walked down the aisle towards the love of her life, you could see the butterflies lift off and leave her unsettled tummy. She relaxed immediately upon making eye contact with Miguel. Her face softened. Her heart warmed. You could see it. She was ready.
Tear soaked vows and precious stoned symbols of eternity sealed the deal. And Mary and Miguel were made one.
“Pray for them,” Mary’s dad said in his welcome speech at the reception, a request that sent a shiver through my body. Because to me, a union strengthened by prayer and God’s love is the type of union that can stand the test of time. Through all the ups and downs, a union centered around God will stand tall and strong. And there’s nothing to be nervous about that.
