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!
