I'm romantic and love bold expressions of commitment and creativity. My friend Shellie Warren shared a video with me today that has me in tears right now. The images, music and story are all inspirational.
God bless this beautiful couple and their wonderful story. Please be patient the video takes a while to download but it's worth the wait.
Here's the story, according to one of the couple's friends:
My friend Rob just got engaged a couple of months ago. He told me that God was unfolding a vision in his life over the span of about a year and then he put faith to feet and made it happen. He sent me over the slide show today and after I watched it I sat here almost in tears. Just to give you a brief synopsis of what went on (and yes I did get Rob and Keisha's permission to share this great story with all of you)...Rob and Keisha dated for about 4 years. And he knew that she was the one...but he had to save up for all that God had prompted him to do for her. So in short what you are about to see happen on April 28th....he rented out 10 rooms in the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead and invited about 50-60 people to be there for this special night...Keisha had to go from room to room and in each room were people who were special to them....his boys...her girls...her Bible Study group....his parents...her parents..etc. and everybody in each room had questions that she had to answer to be able to move to the next room and before she left each room the people there would pray over her....so you have to watch each room to see how that goes...he chose roses because Keisha aunt who passed suddenly loved roses and he bought some of the dipped in gold because of the stories in the Bible about Solomon and how everything was dipped in gold and the song that you hear playing in the background was the same song that was played at Keisha aunt's funeral, she was like a second mom to Keisha.
The video is very moving and the pictures are quite beautiful. Say what you want about religion, etc. this type of love is truly a gift from God. And given these folks are church-goin' folks, religion isn't all that bad from time to time.
