Between laundry, emails, grad announcements, and orders, I'm working on Lavanya and Angad's Saturday Indian Wedding Sneak Peek. Say that fast 5 times. HA! Leaves were a big part of the day. I'm continuing my reading of the customs and traditions of a Indian Wedding and found this little tidbit that explains some of what I witnessed Saturday.
"Whoever offers a leaf, flower, a fruit or even water with devotion, that I accept lovingly; offered as it is with a loving heart."
Such a wonderful thought. WITH DEVOTION is the key part here. If you are offering anything with devotion, then it is offered with a loving heart. There is no way LOVE can not be a part of devotion. Just can't. And because we know that LOVE is the greatest of all things, how awesome is a leaf?
