Father of the Bride

This is what everybody else sees.

Bride 1

This is what he sees.

Bride 10

It’s not just a difference of perspective…

Bride 4

It’s a difference in relationship.

Bride 9

A difference in calling.

Bride 7

A different rite of passage.

Bride 2

A different kind of celebration.

Bride 6

Remember when Jesus taught us to pray?

Bride 9

He taught us to start by saying, “Our Father…”

Bride 5

Ever wonder what the Father sees when He hears your voice, calling out His name… “Abba!”

Bride 8

He sees His child… the Bride of His Beloved Son.

Bride 3

Though sometimes she’s broken or weary or torn, His gospel-colored gaze sees in her… in you… the delight of His Beloved.

Bride 11

This moved me so much, Andy. My dad is slipping away . . . it will only be a matter of days. Would you be so kind as to keep them in your prayers? Thank you, my friend.
