It’s finally here. My little soccer playing, basketball sinking, angelic singing, beautiful Lindsay will become Mrs. Andrew Barnes in a little more than a week. I can hardly believe it. I’m so nostalgic the past few days. My sweet neighbor saw Lindsay’s dress and she started it–the first of many deluges, that is. She got teary eyed and immediately mine followed. She knew my heart and I knew hers. Wasn’t this our little five-year old? Isn’t it too soon? But no, indeed the years have flown, and every thing under heaven has its appointed time.
What a day to celebrate His mercy over us, to trust Him for our future, for their future; for our passing the torch to another generation to go forth in Christ, in His Strength, in His Grace. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. And bless this marriage as a strong three-fold cord in Christ! Amen.
