And Thereto I Plight Thee My Troth


Perfection.
My homeland did me proud.
The playing of 'Jerusalem' brought me to tears.
The exuding love for each other made my heart flutter.
This green and pleasant land, unmistakably merry.

I thought of you today, wondering if the Royal wedding made you homesick. Someday I hope to visit England, it's on the top of my list of places to see.

Betsy said...

I watched! It was lovely! Yes, Jerusalem is such a moving piece. Sigh. :)

Love in the Spring how lovely.

Bonnie said...

I agree.

Rebecca said...

Proud? Rightly so The beauty and dignity of the service was awesome. The Duchess was poised and totally lovely. I can well imagine the singing of Jerusalem brought you (and many others) to tears.

They did us all proud!
I am so happy I woke up at 1a.m. to watch it Live :)

And I re-watched it most of the day ;)

I watched the Royal Wedding as well. They both looked lovely ! Have a wonderful day !

Tess said...

I got up very early to watch. It was wonderful. One of the many things England does so well is sacred music with boy choir. "Jerusalem" was stunning and gave me goosebumps!!!

The whole wedding was wonderful. I had to see it live, but then watched it over again. (My english husband was totally disinterested!)

I'm sure it made you so proud to be British!!!

Tears here, too. Loved it all! The dress was perfection and their shared love is apparent. I wish these two sweeties well.

I'm glad you were happy with it all, Jo!

Hugs!

Watched it. Loved it. Watched it again.
My brother, who lives in London, is up in Scotland away from the mayhem of the human sea that has engulfed the capital :)

Star said...

I watched it twice too. I loved Kate's medieval look and with the heralds and the arrival of the Queen, I could put myself back in time. How about you? Did it have that effect on you too?

Paul said...

Yes, Jerusalem was moving. As was the blacony scene and fly over.

All in all it was great fun, I watched it from Florida, had to get up at 5am!

Oh how nice to find a place where it was all enjoyed. so many naysayers whining and complaining and they were all the Brits!! I also teared up with Jerusalem...and his obvious feelings for her!! Wish them well and happy, ever after!

Diane said...

We got up early and watched as well. What a beautiful couple they make. God bless them!
