Isaiah 60:5

In my daily reading today I came upon the most beautiful verse.. A verse that truly sums up how I have been feeling lately as we look forward to the wedding... I know this is my wedding verse.. My version is NIV and says:

"And then you will look and be radiant, and your heart will throb and swell with joy.."

I loved it so much, I found other versions.. equally amazing, and eqaully adding to my JOY!

"When you see them coming you'll smile—big smiles! Your heart will swell and, yes, burst!" (The Msg)

"Your eyes will shine, and your heart will thrill with joy," (NLT)

"Then you shall see and be radiant; your heart shall thrill and exult." (ESV)

Even better yet.. in text context, this verse is talking about God's Kingdom of light.. God's desire to make us shine, to provide for us, and to love us and lift us up to be with Him...
