My Wedding Dress {A Fourth Letter To My Daughter}

Dear Baby Girl,

I can’t believe another year has gone by that I’ve photographed you in my wedding dress.  Some days seemed long, never ending, and other days seemed to fly by and I’m afraid that my memory will cease to remember the simple details of our days together. You know…the mundane parts of our day, like you wanting to buy lunch instead of pack, me yelling at you to brush your teeth, you yelling at me when I comb your hair too hard, and when we argue about what you will wear to school (heads up…you won that one, but I’m always going to win the brushing your teeth argument). When I sat down to write this, I had no idea what I really wanted to say, but then the Lord laid something on my heart.  Today at church, I was singing on the praise team and all of the sudden the words of a song overwhelmed me. I started to cry…in front of everyone. If you don’t know how hard it is to sing while crying, let me tell you..you simply can’t do it. Every time I started to sing again, my voice would crack and my chin would tremble…and it was because of these words: Christ alone, cornerstone. Weak made strong in the Savior’s love. Through the storm, He is Lord, Lord of all. When darkness seems to hide his face, I rest on His unchanging grace. In every high and stormy gale, My anchor holds within the veil (Cornerstone by Hillsong Worship). These words may not mean much to you now, but I feel the Lord will use them to comfort you in the future. I was completely fine when I went to church, not much going on in my life (besides raising four kids), I don’t feel consumed with anything negative, no big storms I’m walking through, but for some reason, I felt the presence of God around me, reassuring me that He is the cornerstone, He is there through it all….the storms and the mundane. He is there in the moments I get frustrated when you cry about your socks not feeling right on your toes, He is there when I cook dinner for two hours and you tell me, “It’s delicious mommy.” He is there when I find a bottle of open honey in your dresser, He is there when we are cuddled in your bed reading New Hat (which you can read all by yourself now). He is there when….fill in the blank. The point is, no matter what you will walk through, He is there. He is your cornerstone, His grace and mercy are boundless. His love for you will never change, no matter what choices you make (and believe me, there will be some choices that you will most likely regret). If there was ever anyone that could possibly love and care for you more than mommy and daddy, it’s Jesus. Don’t lose sight of His light when you walk through difficulty and don’t lose sight of His light when you walk through the mundane tasks of everyday. I love you so much sweet girl,

Mommy
