White As Snow


Today I went to a very unique wedding. Not only was it an outdoor wedding in Virginia on a cold January day- but there was 5 inches of snow on the ground and it continued to snow during the ceremony!

More unique than their winter wonderland wedding, was my friends’ decision to save their first kiss for this special day. In a culture where immorality runs rampant, the mere suggestion that someone would wait for their wedding day to kiss (not to mention other things), seems ridicules.

When the word purity is mentioned in our society, the connotations are stronger of that of a bottled water commercial than what the Bible would define it to be. As young Christian women, God has called us not only to live lives of purity, but also to be examples in a culture that is ever straying from God’s design for love, romance and marriage.

“Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.”

Love this story... this is something(waiting til I get married to kiss) that I have considered and been thinking about doing. I think it makes a kiss more special... I'm not dating yet (actually never had a boyfriend yet and that's okay I'm only a Freshman in college), and as much as romance novels makes a kiss between a guy and girl sound romantic (which it probably is) then wouldn't it be even more romantic to wait til marriage? Just some thoughts... oh, and if that is a picture of the bride and groom... their setting of snow is lovely and romantic too.

Wow, for a women to save her first kiss until marriage, she must be really dedicated to Gods will. Its a beautiful story and an example that should inspire lots of teenagers, including me.
