Jesus is our Bridegroom. You are the bride. I am. All Christians are. Before we met him, those who ushered us in had to throw off convention to introduce us. They broke a mould we didn't know we were in.
Then attendants come. People who love and know the bride and bridegroom. They are full of Joy. They demonstrate it in unusual ways and show us how. There's even a place when one bridesmaid has to be pulled along by another. Sometimes that happens in our own lives.
The dance of expectation makes us all look forward to the arrival of the bridegroom. Then, even though time seems to go more slowly, there comes a day. All kinds of people standing together and suddenly the Bridegroom breaks thru. He comes forth with a somersault. The whole wedding party comes forward. The anticipation builds and suddenly, there she is, the Bride.
She begins to dance toward her bridegroom. Then the bridegroom leaps off the altar and rushes to join his bride as she comes forward. They dance to make the final covenant.
This is JUST LIKE JESUS. It made me break out for joy and in tears at the same time. This is so much the way Jesus will come to us. Watch if once more for a new view of the wedding table in heaven.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The video of a Minnesota couple who boogied down a church aisle with their wedding party to the surprise of their guests is a hit on YouTube.
Kevin Heinz and Jillian Peterson, their seven bridesmaids, five groomsmen and four ushers danced down the aisle to the Chris Brown song “Forever” before the couple exchanged vows June 20 in St. Paul.
Peterson said Friday on NBC’s “Today” show that she grew up dancing and loves dance as a way of expression. She says she didn’t have any trouble talking Heinz into it for their wedding.
After posting the video on YouTube for family members, Heinz says the number of hits just exploded. The video has gotten more than 1.4 million hits on YouTube as of Friday.
