Day Eighteen of Lent

Dear Lord,

Today was filled with what we call coincidence.

There were moments of kindness from unexpected corners

There were chance meetings.

There was so much ‘at the right place at the right time.’

Let me never take these gifts for granted.

May I always take the time to see you within them.

Thank you, Lord for these tiny moments of wonder.


Why Are We Having a Wedding?

As a child I learned what love was because my parents loved me.

In grade school I learned what love was because my friends loved me.

In adulthood I learned what love was because lovers loved me.

Now I know what love is because you love me.

And you love me because I learned to love myself.

There is nothing more comforting, intoxicating and wise than loving someone who loves themselves.


We are messy and funny and angry and sad – not perfect or straight or disciplined.

The two of us are not ‘complete’ when we are together.

Our lives are simply better when we are together.


Why are we having a Wedding?

Because we want to stand before the world as we know it to share what we are and to have them cheer.

Cheer because they are with us;

Cheer because they love us;

Cheer because they cannot wait to see what we create!

And because we want to share.

Share our excitement;

Share our love;

Share what we will all create together.
