A Special Wedding…

Posted by Nandie on March - 12 - 2014

Went to a wedding this Saturday! It was the wedding of one of the students that were in our study abroad group in Vietnam. He fell in love with a girl in Vietnam while we were there and finally sealed the deal this past Saturday!!!! 14 of the 18 students that studied together in Vietnam for 2 months, showed up at the wedding, along with our Professor who took us! So cool that we all made it happen! It was a fairly small wedding, but so personal! The Pastor who married the couple did an incredible job! She had some of the most amazing messages and blessings. Here is a paragraph she read right at the beginning, that I just had to share here in my blog, so beautiful! Really made me think back on all the relationships I have had that eventually came to an end….made me realize why they had to come to an end….and also made me hopeful and excited about the one relationship that will on day lead to marriage that will, unlike the other relationships, completely embody this paragraph…

“Love is friendship caught fire; it is quiet, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection, and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present, hopes for the future, and does not brood over the past. It is the day-in and day-out chronicles of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories, and working toward common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you do not have it, no matter what else there is, it is not enough” – Laura Hendricks
