Picture the most beautiful site on the coast: Little Corona Cove. Picture a loving couple re-newing, with two children and guests watching, their wedding vows. Picture rain — yes rare rain — right at the time of the ceremony, pouring down. Picture the joy of love unabated, as this officiant led them in vows and symbols of commitment. The storm on the beach was a perfect metaphor for the challenges of life and the ultimate victory of true love. The couple and the guests all came from deep-frozen Minnesota, and their spirits soared as our "warm rain" was taken as the very blessing of God poured down upon their family. As I drove away, soaked to the bone but inspired by this family, I savored with happiness my opportunity to serve them in the celebration of life.
Thanks again, for facilitating these romantic and authentic times,
