How does a bride feel when she puts on her wedding dress?
I imagine her emanating with an unexplainable joy.
An overwhelming rush that fills her eyes with tears and a smile at the same time.
She stands tall, draped in the beautiful fabric, and beams with delight.
Beauty wraps all around her, and she shines like never before.
Even when she steps out of her wedding dress, her beauty never fades, but remains.
Her beauty resonates not from her external garments, but a heart revelation.
A revelation of love.
An unshakeable understanding of the truth that she is loved as who she is.
It wraps all around her, and penetrates into the deepest places of her heart.
It drips out her wounds and fills the now empty spaces with newness.
Out of a heart that once cried black tears flow liquid gold of love.
Out of the beauty of her heart, flowers blossom and melodies rise.
Her beauty unlocks the heart of others and enters in with a rushing wave of love.
Unending floodgates of love that breaks through the hardest and darkest.
The connection through beauty release a sweet fragrance and melodies of love.
It all starts with a revelation of love.
Because beauty shines brightest through the revelation of being loved.
So, won't you take the Lover's hand, and let him walk you into His Love story?
My beloved spoke and said to me,
“Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.
See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves is heard in our land."
