So many activities have kept us busy these past few months, that I have not until now had opportunity to complete the wedding posts. Here is the final one. (And I’ll be brief so it really gets published!)
Those of us who hurried ahead to the reception had things to do before the arrival of the guests such as milking the cow and putting the flowers on the cakes.
As people began to arrive, we were very grateful that we had erected our big tarpaulin. It never rained heavily during the reception, but the clouds drizzled from time to time.
Toward the end of the afternoon, amid cheers from the remaining guests, the couples left in their well decorated cars – one bound for the east coast, the other for the west.
There were tears in many eyes as we watched them go. Life would never be same again. But even as we sorrowed over our loss, we rejoiced in our gain and took heart in the remembrance that sunset in one place is sunrise in another. In closing one chapter of life, God opens another. Though He was, is, and always will be changeless (Jas 1:17), the Christian walk is not a stationary process.
