Flower Girl


On Sunday morning as I walked into our Sunday School class, I was greeted by a sweet smiling friend holding a beautiful bouquet of tulips (my favorite!).  She gave me the flowers and asked if I would allow Grace to be a flower girl in her upcoming wedding.  Hmmm…let me think a minute…of course! 

When I tried to explain it to Grace later, she didn’t fully understand, but she did get three major points that she was VERY excited about:

1.  She will wear a pretty dress.  (Really pretty…I saw it online!)

2.  Her hair will be curly.  (Rollers are a BIG incentive these days.)

3.  She will look like a princess.  (This was especially exciting when  the mother-of-the-bride mentioned a possible tiara).

I’ve already started praying that she won’t freak out and ruin the wedding, but I really think she’ll be okay when the time comes.  She’ll be five years old and we’ll practice a lot!


Honestly, the most exciting part of this wedding will be the sweet man and woman that are joining their lives together and starting a family of faith.  It is rare and precious to see a couple striving to honor God in every detail of preparing and planning for marriage.

You're going to be a very dapper-looking father-of-the-bride!
