My son gets married this weekend.
He has been out of the house for quite some time now so at least we don't have to get used to a silent house. It is already silent most of the time.
There are good aspects of silence, it means that there is peace not disagreement, you can learn better in silence, read and listen better in silence and rest of course. So it's not his marriage that causes silence in our home we choose silence.
What our son's marriage does create is a new era of family. A beautiful daughter-in-law, Alyssa joins us.
Alyssa is kind, considerate, cares deeply for others, works hard, is very intelligent, loves the Lord and is beautiful in every way! I can only imagine how gorgeous a bride she will be! Our son is blessed and so are we!
This marriage will make Eric so happy, so satisfied and so complete that I want it for him almost as much as he does!
Today as I physically begin to prepare for it, I am praising Yahweh for His goodness to our family. As we make ourselves ready I am worshipping my Savior, my God, for His blessings. For they come not as a result of anything we have done, but from the richness of His never ending love. A love that shows us how to live, how to love and leads us toward eternity with hearts overflowing with gratitude to Him.
My son gets married this weekend ....and we are ready to celebrate this magnificent union.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’.
