Music From the Heart.
The front doors of the church burst open as the bridal procession walked down the steps followed by a mass of family and friends. The atmosphere was festive and joyful as well-wishers began to congratulate the newly married couple. Photographers lined up to capture the first shots of the newly weds before they dashed off in their limousine parked outside the front gate. The local town band celebrated with jovial music. Confetti and rose petals glided through the air as Jason and Jenna posed and smiled for the cameras.
Jason looked breathtaking in his double breasted black pinstriped suit; while Jenna looked like royalty in her flowing white lace gown with meters of trailing veil and a glittering tiara. They made a beautiful couple; every one had said so, every one except Lynn who watched from a restaurant close to the church.
“Come on Lynn we going to be late for lunch,” called Jason as he impatiently paced up and down the drive way.
“I’m almost ready Jason, you know how women are. We always like to look our best especially when I’m about to meet my future mother and father in-law,” Lynn giggled happily, carefully applying the finishing touches of her make up. In less than six months time she would be Mrs. Jason Faraday. Wow! That sounded good, Lynn thought as she clipped on the diamond earrings Jason had given her as a birthday gift.
“Yeh! Yeh! Whatever, but make it snappy, I hate waiting,” Jason shouted back irritably.
She wasn’t going to hurry on his account. It was all very well for him because he had met her parent’s a few months ago and they loved Jason like a son. But for her it was a totally different story. This would be her first meeting with Jason’s parents. They had flown into town that morning for a huge church convention, and they had requested to meet their only son’s soon- to- be wife. Talks about nervous, Lynn nerves were shattered but Jason had assured her that his parents would love her on sight. Lynn wasn’t so sure.
That had been almost two years ago. Jason parents did not approve of their son’s choice for a wife. As the mighty “Faraday” family and Jason as the heir to the Faraday dynasty, they demanded that their son marry within their social standards or risk losing his entire inheritance. Jason made the choice to break off his relationship with Lynn. Lynn was devastated.
Two years later, Lynn now sat across from the church watching as the man who had broken her heart got into the limousine with the new Mrs. Faraday. While the local town band played and people celebrated their marriage, Lynn sang a new song in her heart, a song of thanks to God for giving her the strength to see this through and for taking her to a higher level of faith in Him. Looking at Jason and Jenna, Lynn agreed that they did make a great couple. Finally her day of release had come.
