Preparation of the Bride

A weekend ago I dressed in a breezy petal gown and stood, roses in hand, alongside this golden couple proclaiming their "I do's." 

The worshipful ceremony brought to mind how I, and we who are followers of Christ, are being prepared as the Bride of Christ. 

We will be spotless - pure - cleansed of all our darkness. 

How I look with joy to that day's coming.
