On Saturday, my beanie and I attended a friend´s wedding. She´s Sarah and her hubby is Swedish. I got to know her from a Singaporean online forum for Asian women who are getting married to "Ang Mo"s - westerners.
She happened to have a blog too and when I found out that she was getting married during the time when we would be in Singapore, I was thick-skinned enough to ask her if it was ok if we came along. She very kindly consented to my request and we were both so happy we went! Boy, the wedding was so BEAUTIFUL!
It really reminded us how when God is in the centre of our lives, everything is possible! Everything about the wedding, from the long-distance, the online communication, leaving the home church to relocate to different country, all struck such a close chord to our hearts. We were sooo very close to tears. Our hearts were so filled with thanks to God once again for really being the one to bring us together. Humans do forget so easily.
Truth be said, I really love church weddings. I do feel the pinch of staying in Germany and missing out on so many weddings of my friends in Singapore. On a superficial note, I felt sad too that the white dress I bought last year was only worn once and I can´t foresee myself being able to wear it in Germany - white being forbidden in western weddings as black is forbidden in Asian weddings.
So I did tell God that this trip to Singapore would be so perfect if only I could go for a church wedding. And voilà! We did have a wedding to go for and what a wedding! A true-blue testimony of God´s miraculous plans, timing and love! Plus, this is the best part - the colour theme of the wedding was white and gold! Isn´t that just GOD???
Call me biased, but I really think this photo looks so cute with 2 mixed couples!
