tell me more, tell me more

"And our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete." 1 John 1:3-4

My daughter's speedy wedding, triggered questions from many.  Like, why the rush?

In the Army, Chas has been stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany for the past two years.  With her college graduation on the horizon, they were ready for a full commitment to the other.  For Anna to join him in Germany,  she had to get “Army approved and sponsored” before his last year officially began…  he had fourteen months left.  Thus the race to the altar before the deadline!  And to their delight, she received approval this week to join him by the end of June.  Just in the nick of time.

It wasn’t the wedding I dreamed about for my only daughter… but it ended up being the right one for them. After watching tons of “Say Yes to the Dress” and hours of pinning wedding-rehearsal tidbits, she scratched it all. She was more than willing to give it all up for him/them.  Must be true love.  : )  Their marriage is more about the relationship, not the event.

Our commitment to God needs to be the same... a relationship, not just an event.  Spending time with Him daily fills our life with the richest of blessings, and quenches our desire for everlasting joy and peace.  Events come and go leaving voids.  A relationship is ongoing filling voids.  Which do you prefer?

have a ful-filling day!
