Thoughts from within a week

3 DAYS!!!  :)

Psalm 67 says:
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.  May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.  May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth.  May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.  Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless you.  God will bless us and all the ends of the earth will fear him.

This is our prayer for the wedding, that God would be gracious to us and bless us to that his ways would be known among those at the wedding.  As much as we want this occasion and celebration to be beautiful and fun we are praying that the Lord would grow an even stronger desire in our hearts for his glory and his fame.

We have been deeply affected by knowing that the depth of love that we have for one another is but a mere shadow of the love that God has for each of us individually.  We are praying that this knowledge would permeate fortified and calloused hearts, blind eyes and deaf ears all to his glory.  

Thanks to everybody who has been praying for us in this time, your prayers are certainly felt.  This week we have had enough of a to-do list to keep us busy but not enough to stress over.  We are so excited to see everybody this weekend and share this occasion with everybody that can come.
