I officiated at a wedding today, the first in about 5 years.  It was the most beautiful wedding I ever participated in.  Not because of anything I did - I just said the traditional stuff. But the bride and groom wrote their own vows, and they were spectacular, at least in the moment. It was a beautiful day here, and the setting was outside in a place called “Cathedral Oaks” - so you can imagine what it looked like. Anyway, most weddings are a waste of a good Saturday, but this one was worth it.  Signing off.

It always starts beautiful but it usually ends with screaming and pain.

Yeah, I know. But it’s beautiful while it’s beautiful, and I enjoyed it. We’ll see.

In my career as a minister, I’ve been more successful at funerals. All the people I’ve buried are still dead, but only 50% of the people I’ve married are still wed.

Yep, take what goodness you can while you can.  I review baby photos of my surly teenage son to keep me from killing him for being surly.

grin) Good batting average in both cases. Would be worried if your funeral average wasn’t that good.
