Winter Weddings

“Snowflakes are one of winter’s most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together.” ~ Vesta Kelley

I have to say, winter weddings are my favorite. I know most people prefer spring or summer, but something about the snow and cold outside and the warmth inside. . .

The family is together, the church is decorated for Christmas, the lights are shining and then. . .

Something about the vows being said so near the time we celebrate the commitment of Mary to God’s plan just seems to add meaning. At least to me.

The family grows and expands and joins together two separate entities into one. Sister and brothers, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles — like the snowflake above, fragile on it’s own, the family together becomes the substance with force behind it. Like an avalanche of snow which can destroy with it’s force and beauty, a family has raw power at it’s core when they stand together.

And it all starts with “I do.”
