Something in White

This weekend I bought a dress.

The dress is white.

It is not in my size.

It is in my daughter's size.

This weekend I bought a wedding dress for my daughter.
I wish I could show you a picture of it . . . but, I'm sure you understand, no pictures of the dress before the wedding!!

Have you done that yet?  Have you bought a wedding dress for your daughter?

If you haven't, I can tell you that it is amazing.  

The pride and love you feel in seeing your daughter in a beautiful white wedding dress . . . let me tell you what.  It is a gift from God.

Our beautiful daughter, Alex, is engaged  to a handsome young man who is serving our country as a United States Marine.

They will be married this summer and she will move to Norfolk, Virginia, where he is stationed. He will have about two years of service left when they get married.

She has already applied to two colleges in Norfolk, and will begin college classes there in August.

I must admit that the thought of her moving away from me is hard.  Very. Hard.  

But I have prayed over my children daily since before they were born, and I am trusting God's plan for both their lives.

Please pray for both of my children as they will both be married this year.

And please pray for ME as our children are getting married 7 weeks apart.  Wow.

My cup runneth over.


  1. Awwh! So sweet! So many life changes so fast. Good luck!

  2. I have been able to do this twice and you are so right, a very precious moment as they choose the dress to make a vow. A soulful experience

  3. My girl is only ten. I am thinking of this day. I am so happy for you.

    A Marine? You are very lucky. I married a retired Marine. Good Man.

    God Bless you and your family.
