Words from Kelly Perry:: “Waiting. This word typically brings negative feelings to our mind, but peel back those initial layers and beneath you find that waiting brings forth loveliness in its purest form.
In ancient Hebrew culture when a bride and groom were engaged, there was a time of separation, of waiting. Rather than planning every detail of their wedding day together, the groom needed to leave his bride at her home and go to his father’s house to build a room for he and his bride to live in when they married. She never knew exactly when her groom would return, but she trusted him and waited. This trust brought peace and rest to her mind. In that time she prepared herself for his arrival, fully confident he would return at just the right time.

I began imagining this bride patiently preparing for her groom against the ethereal backdrop of the mountains –
running through the hillsides in her flowy, heirloom gown to see if that was him coming around the bend. She
gracefully gathers freshly cut flowers, the perfume of each one making her sweeter. Every night she keeps her lamp burning — anticipating his return. And while she waits her love and longing for him grows stronger producing a rich charm and elegance in her eye, one that only comes through waiting.” These images tell that sacred story.
