In the last week I have attended a special wedding and a sweet, simple funeral. The wedding was for family friends who we have watched grow up; we went back to Minnesota to witness the event and it was well worth it. The funeral was for a man we didn’t know, but after hearing about his life, probably would have liked to. The two ceremonies caused me to think more deeply than an average day; weddings make me reflect on the past and appreciate the present while funerals make me think about the future.
Did I have any idea what I was getting myself into on my wedding day?
Does my guy know how much I love and need and admire him today?
What will people say about me when I leave this earth?
I can’t change anything about that first question, but I can help equip others as they start this wild ride of marriage.
I need to tell my guy how I really feel a lot more often.
Who really cares what people will say? What will my God say when I enter His court?
Sigh….looks like there’s more work to be done…..
