When We See Our Groom
2 Corinthians 4:17 reminds us, “These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us.”
A diving accident left Joni Eareckson paralyzed. Her handicap didn’t keep her from marrying Ken Tada, but it almost kept her from the joy of the wedding. While waiting to go down the aisle, she discovered across her beautiful wedding dress a big, black grease mark courtesy of her chair. The bouquet of daisies on her lap slid off center; her paralyzed hands unable to re-arrange them. She felt far from a picture-perfect bride! But as she looked down the aisle—she saw her groom. She says, “Grease stains? Flowers out of place? Who cares? The love in Ken’s eyes washed it all away! Everything changes when you look at your groom!
