The day of weddings.

April 30, 2011

Yesterday was certainly the day for weddings. From the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in London, to Brooke & Joe in Omaha, Nebraska, it was quite the day. As I sat in St. Johns (certainly the most beautiful Catholic church) looked at Brooke, who looked stunning and listened to the Priest's homily, I found myself with tears in my eyes. Joe's sister had just read 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 which is the perfect wedding verse and she reminded all of us the very important characteristics of love. The Priest then spoke about the sanctity of marriage. He talked about the challenges and the day-to-day commitment it takes. But he also talked about the rewards that come from marrying your best friend. He talked about a kind of love that is only shared between a man and woman. He reminded us all that a love like that is something to be cherished, and never taken for granted. Yesterday was a great day. It was nice, in the midst of finals, to sit back, and be a part of Brooke and Joe's fairytale. It was nice to see, first hand, a type of love that everyone dreams they find someday. So to Will&Kate, Brooke & Joe, thanks for letting me be a part of your day. 
 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
Joe & Brooke. 
Me and the beautiful bride
William and Kate.
