Isle, Altar, Him

I read about a bride who sought advise on how to deal with her nerves as she processed to the altar at the start of her wedding. The pastor suggested that she remember to keep her eyes first on the isle. Then, upon turning the corner, to focus on the altar. And. finally, as she drew near the altar, to focus on the groom. She did exactly that on her wedding day . . . and as she did so, she was heard saying to herself, “Isle, Altar, Him!” “Isle, Altar, Him!” (Source Unknown).
