My Fairy Tale Wedding

 It was a beautiful wedding, the marriage of Kate and Prince William, a real life version of a fairytale. Everything was so beautiful and well put together. The wedding dress was stunning, the bride was beautiful, and the Prince was very handsome in his regal uniform. I loved that they rode away in a horse drawn carriage.

The thing that struck me the most was the high contrast between this "perfect" wedding and my very simple wedding -- they spoke the words "till death do us part" whereas my wedding included the covenant of "eternal marriage" that death cannot break.

A family is forever

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, of which I am a member, Christ's priesthood has been restored with all the blessings and ordinances, including the ordinance of eternal marriage which takes place in a Temple.

This life is the time to prepare to meet God. God has a plan for us and part of that plan is for us to be happy here on earth and also in the eternities. My family is my joy and the covenants I've made bind me to God and to my husband and my children. They are a reminder of what is most important so I don't get distracted by the lies the world teaches.

My fairytale wedding didn't exist in the details of the wedding, my fairytale wedding exists in the covenant that I made and that I truly will live "happily ever after".

Loved this post. You have a nice little collection of pictures in front of the temple! I need to start that tradition. Anyway, I really liked the comparison.

I also love the new blog header! Cute - and cute bows :D
