One of the reasons for our recent trip south was to attend a wedding. A former third-grade student, with whom I had kept contact, issued us the invitation to the very joyous occasion of her marriage. We had not seen one another in nineteen years, and it was the happiest of reunions!
It was the highest honor to be asked to do one of the scripture readings during the ceremony.
We were also very glad to bring home two of the center pieces used on the reception tables!
We send loving wishes for a long and happy life together to the newlyweds!!
Nellie, Thank you so much for making a difference in a young girl's life...I say that knowing that not every teacher the bride had was invited to the wedding..well I am almost sure. You prove that teachers touch lives. I too remember many of my teachers with love. Blessings, xoxo, SusieReplyDelete
I will echo Susie's comment, Sister! I could count on the fingers of one hand the teachers whom I would have wanted at my wedding, but sadly, I had lost touch with them by the time I was able to convince a man that I was worthy of being his wife! LOL Those centerpieces are beautiful, as I'm sure the entire ceremony was, and I'm quite sure you did your part with grace and love. Have a wonderful afternoon!ReplyDelete
Dear Nellie, What an honor for you to be a part of this special wedding ceremony. The centerpieces are so very sweet. May God richly bless the newlyweds. Wishing you an extra special evening. xoReplyDelete
Nellie, you must have left quite an impression on that young lady. I am so happy she asked you to be a part of a very important day. Thank goodness for teachers like you! xo ♥ReplyDelete
It's news like yours that just makes my day Nellie:)ReplyDelete
I think I haven't been to a wedding since my own.ReplyDelete
What an honor!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful event to be part of. The daughter of my best friend from elementary school will be married in July, so looking forward to the whole wedding weekend.ReplyDelete
