Real Love - Gavin and Rachel

All my little plans and schemes
Gone like some forgotten dream
Seems like all I really was doing
Was waiting for you

Just like little girls and boys
Playing with their little toys
Seems like all we really were doing
Was waiting for love

No need to be alone
It's real love
Yes it's real
Yes it's real love
It's real

From this moment on I know
Exactly where my life will go
Seems like all I really was doing
Was waiting for love.

Last Sunday, My son Gavin and his fiance Rachel were married in a beautiful ceremony at the Keene, Texas SDA Church. As I proudly sat through the ceremony I was struck by how much love came shining through. Rachel had a big smile on her face as she walked down the aisle, and the look on Gavin's face as he watched her was priceless. The smiles were on their faces all day.

I was so happy for them because I am sure of their love for each other. Real Love seems to be an uncommon thing but I am certain that Gavin and Rachel have found it.

Not only was the wedding beautiful, but we had a wonderful time with family over the weekend. It was great to get to spend time with our kids and our siblings. We had so much fun. My granddaughters were the flower girls and they were very beautiful.

It was a beautiful wedding and a lovely day. My prayer for Gavin and Rachel is that their wedding day was a beautiful beginning to a lifelong journey together. I hope that they plan to grow old together.

Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
When the day is done
God bless our love
God bless our love

Spending our lives together
Man and wife together
World without end
World without end
