We talk about the power of love and that's so true. How powerful love is. It occurred to me yesterday that love also has its own magnetic pull. How drawn we are to life events because of love.
Dane and Jonathan arrived this morning from Arizona for Dad and Sandy's wedding, a trip that included 3 different planes and that took a total of 15 hours. Quite a journey for the sake of love. On Jonathan's facebook he posted: Off for a few days to celebrate LOVE!!!!

Yes! And everyone else who has traveled far and wide to be at the wedding is there to celebrate love, too. They'll respond to the pull of love.
Also yesterday, Rob went to a well-tended celebration of life for a 42 year old man. Again, everyone there felt drawn to attend because of love.
Two friends also have big events this weekend which revolve around love: one a family reunion/get together and another a plane trip to support and visit family out of town.
Rob came home this evening, before the rehearsal for Dad and Sandy's wedding, with a gift for me: variegated, intertwined bamboo with a decorative heart on the ceramic pink container. "It's something to help you remember your Dad's wedding." A gift borne out of love for me to celebrate love.
At the rehearsal everyone was all smiles. While rehearsing the vows, Joyce, the minister, said, "Then I'll say the part, you may kiss each other and...oh! You want to practice..." As Dad and Sandy kissed, laughter and love filled the church.
Tomorrow will be heartwarming and truly lovely. How can it not be when love has drawn us all there?
