This season of life for brides-to-be is filled with joy, excitement and a whole lot of stress usually. Unfortunately, stress is usually part of planning a wedding. In the words of my preacher though (who I need to credit the title of this blog to) “Count It All Joy.” Life is full of ups and downs and bumps along the way but we serve a God who is there to guide us through them, all you need to do is trust Him. So when you are about to lose your sanity because the weather channel is calling for rain on your special day, someone in your family disagrees with some part of the wedding details, or every everything isn’t going as planned…. Count It All Joy!
This is an exciting time in your life, don’t run yourself ragged and forget to soak it ALL in! You are entering into a new season of life and love that will hopefully sustain you for the rest of your life. Don’t let the idea of marriage and all God intended it to be get mixed up in all the details of planning a wedding. Count every step of the journey as joy. At the end of your special day all you will have is your wedding dress, pictures from the day and your husband. Enjoy, celebrate, rejoice and count it all joy!
