12 Days to Go

12 days to Jean's wedding. So what do you think was showing all weekend on the movie channel - Father of the Bride! She and Lucas chose Colossians 3:12-15 to be read. My homily will be based on the passage: "Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful."

I'll have to spend time on this. Usually my homily is ten minutes long, but considering this will be my last chance to speak while my daughter still bears my last name...

Marion,

From your posts, it seems that this is a significant milestone for you & that it may be hard to let go in some ways.

But - think of it - This is the first time you'll have a son! What a great blessing. God is multiplying your family - not subtracting from it.

Jessie,

You have captured the blessing of God to Marion!

Just think of it Marion, by God's blessing you have another for whom you have every reason to lift up in prayer. What a privilege!

May God's blessing be on this union and may he grant peace to Marion in this time of transition.

Marion, my memory of Jane is still of a rather little girl - friend of my younger daughters. Congratulations
