Wedding Day

by Cheryl Merrick

On a spring day
bright with new beginnings,
a mother and daughter stand
in the soft light of stained glass windows,
and speak of faith.
As buttons on the wedding gown are fastened,
an era is closed.
A woman emerges
radiant in her love
to kneel at the altar of the Lord.
In a mirrored room,
Fathers witness
words of commitment spoken,
while mothers watch through misty eyes,
as a new family is formed,
created by love,
and forged by
Priesthood power.
