Wedding, and funerals

Wedding and funerals.

Both are significant life events, and there is a right time for everything.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth:

2-8 A right time for birth and another for death,
A right time to plant and another to reap,
A right time to kill and another to heal,
A right time to destroy and another to construct,
A right time to cry and another to laugh,
A right time to lament and another to cheer,
A right time to make love and another to abstain,
A right time to embrace and another to part,
A right time to search and another to count your losses,
A right time to hold on and another to let go,
A right time to rip out and another to mend,
A right time to shut up and another to speak up,
A right time to love and another to hate,
A right time to wage war and another to make peace.

Why is it that weddings and funerals always seem to come in threes?  In the first three months of this year, we attended many funerals and a wedding of a very good friend.  Memories of all will be forever with us.



Busy week this last week has been… attempting to finish up work (still have some more on that plate..), last minute items for the wedding, tying up loose ends with all the vendors, Mel and Jude arriving into Tampa, Richard’s birthday dinner, dancing and the beach, my bachlorette party, shopping… I am exhausted!

The piles of boxes are growing rapidly, I have so much for the charity bag it isn’t even funny… Where did I get all this stuff??? Wish I could sell it… Will have to re-investigate CraigsList, and I am still trying to figure out how to use FreeCycle.. They will not “approve” me to use their website… ARGH.

Loads to do but really looking forward to the honeymoon… a week without phone or email… Hallelujah! Won’t know what to do with myself when I return…

Plans for this week… Need to pick up a little something for Nate, pedicure (and my eyebrows… scary!), finish packing for the honeymoon…

I started to write this a night or two ago… Since then, I have come down with what I think is a sore throat.. and my “to-do” list keeps growing!

Headed off to the doctor now, hoping he can overkill with meds to make me feel better…

So super excited about shower plans!! Wendy, the maid of honor, has described some of the awesome things that she has purchased for decoration… and I can’t wait to see everything all set up! It is going to be beach-themed, which is perfect, considering the big par-tay will be on the beach. Now, we just need everyone to RSVP!

We are also meeting with Carl and Kristin tonight.. Should be fun! Takeout, yummy! Hoping they have some good ideas as to how this whole thing is supposed to play out. I think it will be interesting nonetheless, not a surprise if Carl breaks out in song!:)

We went Michael’s yesterday, found the flower girl’s basket and ring bearer’s pillow, as well as the flowers to make up the bouquet to toss.

Nothing else exciting.. 🙂
