A Special Privilege

My family and I just returned from a weekend in Ouray, Colorado, where I officiated at a wedding for a young woman who was in our youth group in Colorado Springs. It’s an amazing experience to be involved in people’s lives in this way. I watched her grow up from a giggly freshman to a mature senior and now a wonderful young woman who is marrying a great guy. They both love Christ, are involved in growing in their faith, have strong Christian families, and a great support network of friends and relatives. If you were to paint the perfect scenario you’d like to see for a marriage, this comes pretty close.

So many times I do weddings where the couple is focused on everything but the marriage. It was so nice to be part of a special weekend where the focus was on Jesus and the love that two people have for each other.

We also had a great time together as a family on the long drive. The key? Books on tape!

    I just wanted to say hi. One year two months and eleven days later your words on our special day still ring true for us. I will never forget them. Thank you for all your work over the years and you are right it is great to be involved in people’s lives like that. I am really excited to meet Amy’s husband this weekend. They are having a reception here for those of us who could not go to the wedding.

Got something to say? Go for it!
