“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” Victor Hugo

Leaning on God and dreaming about my Wedding Dress.

Lately… at least for the past 15 months, we have been leaning into God, reminding each other if we begin to slip or slide.  Abiding with him and waiting as he works. We have given up trying to control things in our lives. We simply cannot.

As our 30th wedding anniversary passed by in late May, we were not able to do what we wanted with a small recommitment ceremony at the church where I grew up and where we were married. Other things were happening so the day passed. Again we were leaning into God.

Sunday Morning, the UNEXPECTED happened.  As I tumbled out of bed, I showered and washed my hair. Coming out of the shower I discovered my sweet husband had brought into the bedroom the sealed box with my wedding dress inside. We have known each other 57 years, yet  I never would have guessed what he had in mind. As he unpacked all the archival paper stuffed in the arms and bodice, I dried my hair part way and eagerly joined him.  He slid the dress down over my head while I struggled to find the arm holes on the way. I really did not believe it would fit.  I weigh less than I did 30 years ago, but at 68, things are not in the same place on my body anymore!   Read the rest of story!

"Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:11
