Like most young ladies anticipating their wedding day, Rachel Wolf had looked forward to her father/daughter dance since she was a little girl. Recently, that long-awaited dream came true for her. And, as you’ll see in the video below, it was a beautiful moment.

But this dance was far different than most of its kind. You see, Rachel wasn’t really getting married. In fact, she wasn’t even engaged. No, this was a unique wedding dance she and her family had planned so Rachel and her father, James, could share that special moment together before he passed away from pancreatic cancer.

Scripture tells us to “honor our father.” There may be no more beautiful example of that principle being lived out than in this video.

(Scripture also guides men in their role as dad. My colleague Paul Asay explores the lessons fathers can learn from this story in his post over at Dad Matters, “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It.”)

Keep some tissues handy as you watch this video.
