The first Daddy-Daughter Dance is in the books, and we’ve got some really sweet pictures to prove it. One of my favorites is this video of Sam and Sadie doing a “first look”− Sam had his back to her and Sadie very proudly walks up to him and says, “Dad, I’m right here!” He turned around, and truly in awe, said, “Sadie you are so beautiful!” And she really was. We took time to wash and dry hair, put on a pretty dress, and accessorize with a big white bow; she was precious. That whole “first look” stirred something in my soul. God said, “Kasey, you are going to have that moment with me. And it’s not going to be your beauty that I see on that day, but Christ’s beauty in you.” You see, when I accepted Jesus into my life, I had a spiritual makeover. Now God could look at me and say, “You’re so beautiful because my Son’s blood has purified and made you clean.” I know that moment between Sadie and her Daddy was so special, but I long for and cannot fathom how magnificent the moment will be when my heavenly father turns to me and says, “You are beautiful, and you are mine.” We will then get to dance together forever in Heaven.
The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. John 3:29
