My time away has been longer than I had expected! My days have been busy ones since I have been back from New York. A project with a deadline, a friend in hospital, work, housework, etcetera. But one thing I have been diligent with is my daily meditation. it is both my source of renewal and my preparation for the day ahead of me. It is time spent in the fountain of love so that I in turn can bring forth love to others joyously ad effortlessly. For this I am truly and humbly grateful. Because without this fountain, I deplete and I lose the spring in my step, the joy in my heart, the sense of communion with God who is love Himself and I see more of myself and less of others. I encourage anyone who has yet to begin a practice of meditation to begin one now. I encourage all to keep it up and never give it up.
The wedding was beautiful. I am so proud of my daughter for her hard work and creativity in putting it all together. Upstate New York is beautiful during the autumn season. The colours are vibrant, rich and gorgeous.
A sense of the outdoors was brought in with faux autumn leaves, decorated pumpkins and bouquets made with love using autumn colours. Brittany with her natural red hair and her lace wedding dress was breath-takingly beautiful. I loved seeing Dan’s (the groom) expression when she first appeared in all her glory. There were three beautiful flower girls scattering rose petals of red, peach and yellow which seemed to me to mimic the fall leaves fluttering down outside…but with a touch of humour as the youngest flower girl grabbed handfuls of petals and tossed them down with enthusiasm.
It was a strangely emotional day for me. In a sense I felt like I was in a dream and found myself feeling a rush of love towards every guest. On reflection, everybody seemed to be feeling this. It is unusual I think where the bride’s parents are divorced to suddenly see those who once you called family to feel they are family again. The love was palpable.There was a sense of heaven throughout the wedding ceremony and reception. I don’t yet have all the pictures but here are a few:
