The bride was very nervous. It was right before the wedding and she wasn’t sure she could even walk down aisle. So her father gave her some words of wisdom. He said to her.


“There’s only three things you need to focus on. If you focus on these three things, you’ll be fine.


The first is walking down the aisle. Just focus on walking down the aisle of the church. I know it’s rather long, but just concentrate on that. Don’t get caught up with those on either side of the aisle. Just focus on getting to the end of the aisle.



Next, focus on the altar. It is your destination today. Make your way down the aisle to the altar. There you will stand before God with the man you love and will make vows to God and him. Focus on the altar –for the altar represents the love God has for you in Jesus Christ.


Lastly, focus on the hymn just before signing of the Register. In poetry and song, the hymn embodies God’s love for you in Christ, your love for your husband and his love for you.


So, to help you not be so nervous, focus on those three things.


Walking down the AISLE,

Standing before the ALTAR and

Listening to the HYMN.


The bride was very thankful to her Dad for his words of advice.


The family and friends gathered watched as she walked down the aisle. They saw the look of calm on her face.


But as she passed them, they began to chuckle quietly. For along with the look of calm, she was mumbling three words over and over again to help calm her nerves.


“Aisle, Altar, Hymn… Aisle, Altar, Hymn… Aisle, Altar, Hymn.”
