Let's Dance to HIS tune.

Daisypath Anniversary tickers

Tuesday, March 24, 2009


As I was checking off projects this morning on the wedding planning list of things to do, I had that fast-beating-heart-panic-I-can't-do-this-right-and-on-time feeling. We have 3 months to go.

I am not a big fan of that feeling.

My daughter is getting married about an hour from our home. So if we forget anything...OH WELL.

The key to success, is organization.

I wish my husband would do this. He is the organization nut. He is so organized in everything, I am not allowed to put his clothes away, for I may mess up his system. Yeah.

But...he is in denial.

When I talk about the wedding and his opinions on some things, his response is usually, "Honey, I don't know, just give me the bill."

He can't handle his little girl leaving his home. So he rather not think about it. Not that he hasn't come to love Josiah, or disapproves of the marriage, just its his little girl. You know?

Which leaves me to plan.

Who happens to be the crazy one. All over the place. I assign projects to the kids. But then I forget to check up on them. lol. As I was in panic mode this morning, Samuel said to me, " Mom, don't worry about it, God is in control." And walked off. He is right.

So...if you think of it, pray for this disorganized nut. And a nice wedding.

And I thank you. :)

My husband does a lot of weddings. Of course he is not in charge, he just shows up to do the ceremony. But the truth is, there is always something that goes wrong. It is what makes every ceremony unique.

There was the time the best man put the rings in his pocket and they got lost in the lining of the tux. The bride refused to use anyone else's rings to get through the ceremony so with the entire church watching they ripped the lining to get the rings out.

Then there was the time the groom stepped on the bride's train and ripped her dress. Yikes!

And the time the flower girl stood in the middle of the aisle and dumped the basket of petals in a huge pile. Or the flower girl that walked down the aisle at the outdoor wedding and promptly sat in a dirt pile to play.

Or ... the time the pastor (that would be my husband) flew 800 miles with a black jacket and a blue pair of pants packed in his suitcase.

The point is ... it's not about the wedding. It's about the marriage. No matter what happens or doesn't happen, they still wake up together the next day as husband and wife :) Enjoy!

Becky said it quite well. I will be keeping you in my prayers. I will pray for your organization and that you have peace during this time. I know that everything will be fine and that most certainly, God is in control.

Have a good week.

Thank you for your kind words earlier this week. They were a blessing.
I hope you have a good weekend.

P.S. Yes, I am giving up coffee. ;o)


Dear Madeleine, You are great! The wedding will go just right. It will be a wonderful memory.

Samuel was right Mom, God is in control and nothing will not happen that He does not allow. Just calm down and enjoy each moment. It is a wedding and no matter what it will be beautiful. connie
