THE BEE'S KNEES

What can make an Austin, Texas estate wedding even MORE special?

I mean, besides the sprawling emerald lawn, the breeze through the cypress trees, the DOGS in BOW TIES (!), and the incredible food?

When God’s tangible presence descends on the wedding in the form of tiny, precious, docile honey bees.

My dear friend lost her mother several years ago. Her mother loved bees and these tiny creatures remain a reminder of her mother’s presence whenever they show up - which they do, often.

I couldn’t believe the simple, graceful presence of these honeybees during the reception.

They were polite. Like guests, mingling.

And reminding my sweet friend that God moves in tiny, yet powerful ways.
