This weekend, we went to a beautiful wedding. The groom's men all came forward to Scottish bagpiped music, and the bestman took a mic to announce boldly, "Behold! The bridegroom cometh!" Just then, the groom, adorned in a white tux, came galloping up on a white horse. He dismounted and walked up the aisle, where he then, took the mic and spoke of the picture of a bridegroom and his bride being compared to Christ, who is the bridegroom, and the church, who is the bride. The men then surrounded the groom and prayed blessings over him. The procession continued with 13 bride's maids, two ring bearers, ten bell ringers, and four flower girls. Then, the crowd stood as one as the bride came forth in white.......tears filled my eyes as I pictured the hosts of Heaven, one day standing at attention, as we, the church, will one day enter into Heaven's gate...arrayed in white through the precious blood of our bridegroom, Jesus Christ. What a holy and Christ honoring wedding this was.
