From a project I’m working on entitled Jasmine; it is the epitome of the lock on the door.
From behind the groom Charles looked over at the bridal party and fixed his eyes on a beautiful woman. She was average height and weight with medium skin tone, but it was something about her brown eyes which caused him to stare. Something about the person within that Charles wanted to get to know. Feeling someone look at her the woman turned her head slightly and smiled at Charles. His heart leaped on the inside and he thought to himself, ‘She’s going to be my wife.’
After the wedding ceremony, Charles was in the bathroom getting ready to take photos with the bride and groom. As he looked in the mirror he saw the vision of a ring and heard the Lord say, “Hey name is like flowers and her beauty is just for you; yes my son, she is the one.” Immediately Charles called his friend David, a trusted jeweler and gave him the description of the vision he had seen; David said it can be done and will be done just for him in about two weeks.
‘Who is the luck lady?’
‘A girl I’ve just seen today.’
‘Yes, I have to go. I’ll see you next week.’
While taking pictures outside the church , Charles walked over to the lady he had been admiring.
“Hello there.” She said smiling at him, “How are you?”
“I’m well, and you?”
“Great. I’m having the time of my life.”
“Uhm, this is going to sound strange,” Charles started but felt butterflies in his stomach as she looked at him deep into his soul, “I want to get to know you.”
“Okay.” She said without blinking. “You’ll need to know my name.” She reached her hand out to take his.
“Yes, you’re right.” Charles said as he reached back.
“I’m Jasmine.” Charles fainted.
“What did you do to him, Jasmine?” The bride asked as Charles was coming to.
“I introduced myself.”
Being helped to his feet by the other groomsmen, Charles looked at her and said, “I’m going to marry you.”
“Okay.” Jasmine responded, “Let’s help these two celebrate their day first.”
They all laughed and continued on with their day. On the deck of the yacht during the reception, Charles and Jasmine talked and laughed getting to know each other, and enjoying each others company.
“I’m sure the other girls want your time, Charles.”
“I don’t want their time; there was something about you that caught my eye at the wedding.”
“And now, Sir Charles?”
“Sir Charles?!” He laughed while grabbing her hand, “Now, I truly know I will marry you.”
“Are you asking me?”Jasmine said looking out over the water.
“Not today; I will ask you in a week, but until that time, will you allow me to court you?”
Jasmine looked in his eyes and thought this is a joke, “A week? and court me? You mean take me out?”
“I mean, yes, but its different when you’re dating the woman you’ll marry.”
“You’re serious, aren’t you?”
“Yes. I’m not waiting on love any longer; God said you’re the one.”
Jasmine smiled at Charles and thought, no, we’re not waiting any longer.
