Elikem and I went to the wedding of a beautiful family friend and colleague today. She has been through trials and tribulations to be where she was today, dressed exquisitely before her new husband. Between them they bring together seven children and a lot of love. As he removed her veil her face shone with beauty and joy.
And as we listened to those vows being said I held Elikem’s hand and revisited them again in my heart. As as the preacher talked about how marriage is tough and it takes work to be successful, we continued to hold each others hands. And as he finished his preach he asked us to pray in our hearts, we did. I thanked God to the very depths of my soul for the amazing man I am married to.
“There’s something in your eyes, makes me want to lose myself, makes me want to lose myself, in your arms. There’s something in your voice, makes my heart beats fast, hope this feeling lasts, for the rest of my life… Feels like home to me, it feels like home to me…. Feels like I’m on my way back where I belong.” (Feels Like Home – Chantal Kreviazuk)
