The wedding is upon us. This Saturday we will be whiteness of my son Adam and his bride Vanessa joining their lives together. In all the "to do" of it all that is the lasting pointing of the whole wedding. Their life together. I breathe deep and can believe this is my little boy who is a man.
We have tons of company coming in. For me and our family the most important people besides the Bride and Groom has always been the grandparents or great-grandparents. Adam will have three grandparents in attendance. Mom and Dad Lewis have been married over 50 years. Although Dad passed away in 2000, mom and dad had been married since dad was about 21. There is a lot of experience and wisdom between these two marriages.
My grandmother attended my wedding. I did not appreciate it near as much as I should, but Grandma was the most important person at my wedding. She quietly became my role model on how to handle life and marriage.
"On my wedding day I did not realize what a gem I had in my grandmother. As our life together moved through time, Grandma became my role model. Grandma’s life was not easy. A husband who was hardworking and quite. Raising 11 children on a working farm from the 30’s until the 60’s brought it’s own share of problems. Money issues, relationship issues, never enough time together…they are nothing new to my marriage. Grandma never complained. It was a waste of time. Life was not easy, but she will always be a role model of a marriage dependant on God."
