safe in the arms of love

I stood there holding my flowers, listening to the birds sing, smiling at my family as they all found a chair for the ceremony. My heart was in my throat and all of a sudden I realized that I had a long long long way to walk to get to my man. I listened for my cue of music, my sister and her guitar, and began the walk towards the man I have been walking towards my whole life.
I made fun of my little brother Ira at his wedding because he couldn't stand still the whole ceremony. And there I was, wiggling and fidgeting and swaying and hopping...just like him. Guess it serves me right. But man I was filled to overflowing with joy...and I couldn't help it.

I married Lance. I am married to Lance. Lance is my husband. Lance is my safe place. He is my world. He is my heart. He is my protection. My arms of love.

I was thrilled that the photographer captured his look of love as I was walking towards him. These are my two favorite pictures and I thought they should be the first ones I post. Believe me when I say there are a gazillion more but these are my two favorites.

So true, my favorite pictures of Dale are those ones where someone has captured that smile. You know, the one that says, "I am completely happy being with you!"
