Her heart is full of butterflies
She readies for her date;
She checks the mirror several times
She knows He won’t be late.

A single strand of hair that’s loose
Is quickly pinned in place;
She checks the mirror one more time
And hopes her flaws meet grace.

She doesn’t count herself to be
A beauty to behold;
She knows her limitations still
Remind her that she’s old.

Yet, with her imperfections, He
Still called her for a date;
With butterflies; a trembling heart
Rejoices in the fate.

Then suddenly, a knock is heard
Upon the outer door;
And with the knock, a voice unlike
All others known before.

“Beloved, I am here for you
It’s time; I could not wait;
I’ve counted hours, minutes, and
The seconds til our date”.

“I stand and knock; I beckon to
Your heart to let Me in”;
And with the turning of the knob
Their date would now begin.

He walked right through the open door
With gifts that He did bring;
And one by one, she opened them
A crown, a robe and ring.

And as He gave the gifts to her
The angel voices sing;
“Beloved you are blessed this day
Your date is with the King!”

And in the twinkling of an eye
Her body and her soul;
Were transformed to completeness, now
She’s finally made whole.

It's going to be quite a long date. But seriously, I love the flow of wonder and anticipation in the bride's mind.
