a picture transcends a thousand words

This picture is very special to me.  

The photographer captured a very tender moment that (still) moves me no matter how many times I look at it.  You know... the photograph that perpetually touches your soul because the image is stirring and haunting in all the right ways.  Not every picture has it, but you know when it does...

I love this photo for several reasons; however, the heart of the photograph still knocks me right off of my feet.  Locking eyes with the one I love. Moments before we vow to do life together ...forever.  

I knew what I was thinking at the time, but what was he?   When I asked him about his expression in this photograph, his response made me swoon.  Literally.  He said that he never doubted his decision (to ask me for my hand in marriage) and at that moment when our eyes locked he (once again) knew that he had made the right decision.

Will somebody bring me my fainting couch and smelling salts please?  *fans herself* 
Is anybody else hot in here or is it just me?  

This pic makes my heart swell with glee... makes me feel like I'm the richest girl in the world.  I see the absolute, undeniable truth of his statement (in his eyes everyday and) whenever I look upon this picture.  As a child, I remember hearing people say that a picture is worth a thousand words and at the time I did not fully understanding what they meant.  Now that I totally understand the cliche, I have come to see that a picture actually transcends a thousand words because it encompasses thoughts, feelings, words, ideas, emotions and sometimes... the very essence of your heart is on display as a 5x7 or 8x10.  

Today find simple pleasure by revisiting a beautiful memory from your photograph that transcends a thousand words.  Let your heart fill and overflow as you feel the love of yesterday today.


  1. I remember that! Aww! And I also remember how your mother held you hostage before you went to the alter, yapping your ear off. I can distinctly recall the look you gave her that was saying, "Please let me go, so I can get married!" Hilarious!
