Happily Ever After in the Midst of War

I have a happy post to leave with you tonight.
May these photos show you that even in the midst of tragedy and sorrow, there can be joy.

A and S wanted are a young couple that wanted to be married for the past year. However, it has been prevented by the war in Ukraine, as A is a soldier. He has already been in the hospital twice, treated for injuries. So, the couple planned to simply go into a registry office and sign. However, friends and volunteers put together a beautiful wedding for them, on very short notice.

Congratulations A and S! Many blessings to you in this new chapter of your life together.

"But buried deep beneath
All our broken dreams
we have this hope:

Out of these ashes... beauty will rise
and we will dance among the ruins
We will see Him with our own eyes
Out of these ashes... beauty will rise
For we know, joy is coming in the morning...
in the morning, beauty will rise"

Steven Curtis Chapman, "Beauty Will Rise"

Isaiah 61:3
