How Does A Person Describe Love?

Posted by on Oct 23, 2013 in Uncategorized | 16 comments

There are times in a person’s life that are difficult to describe with words.  Even if you are a writer.


Can the setting of a wedding capture the essence of two people’s joie de vivre?



Can the perfectly played notes of Bach’s Wachet Auf  stir the passion in a person’s heart?



Who can read the thoughts of a father whose only and beloved daughter is about to embark on a new life with another man?



How does one describe love?



Is there a look, an expression that conveys one heart’s desire to commit to another for a lifetime?



What makes the ecstasy of joy so contagious?



How can someone’s happiness touch so many hearts?



Will you remember the description of a setting or the picture forever engraved on your heart?



This is a way to say that all of the prayers you’ve ever prayed for the spouse that God ordained for you have been perfectly answered.


Congratulations, my precious daughter Megan Kelly and wonderful new son Tyler!

A special thank you to Karen Hewitt Hagan and Sandra Ericksen of, 27 1/2 State Street, French Quarter Gallery District, Charleston, South Carolina, for providing their beautiful art gallery (Hagan Fine Art Gallery ) for Megan and Tyler’s wedding.

We also thank our incredible wedding officiant, Christy Loftin, who guided Megan and Tyler through the spiritual and legal details of their Charleston wedding, and who, unflustered and with great poise, conducted the wedding ceremony in candlelight due to a spur-of-the-moment electrical outage., and on Facebook:  Details Charleston.
