This past week has been a whirledwind. One of my very close friends from college got married this past Saturday and I was in the wedding as one of his groomsmen. So all the stuff that leads up to weddings, such as friends coming into town (One of our close family friends is staying at our house), pre-parties, and etc; has kept me from following my blogging routine. Hence my last blog post was last Monday.
We still have friends in town, so it will be difficult for me to blog consistantly this week; however I did want to share a little thought that I had while the wedding reception was going on… Yes. My mind does tend to wander, no matter my circumstances, and I have a tendency to contemplate many things… Anyways…
I love weddings! Weddings never get old for me. Since I am a pastor, I have had the privilege of officiating several weddings, and I have also been a groomsmen for my cousin, my dad (I was his bestman), and a groomsmen for a couple of my friends. Additionally, I have also been invited to and have attended many weddings, and I have crashed a couple of weddings back in the day.
One of the things I love about weddings, besides the sacredness that weddings cultivate and elicit in our imaginations and in practice is the seeing of old friends and meeting new friends (I also look forward to the food at wedding receptions and a good piece of wedding cake).
I love reconnecting with long-lost family members, friends from my bygone years, and I love meeting new people from different areas of the nation and world. It’s funny, as much as I am an introvert, I enjoy meeting new people and learning all I can about them and their lives.
Here is what I was thinking at the wedding this past Saturday…
I wonder if the Marriage Supper of the Lamb will be like what I’m experiencing here at the wedding ceremony and reception?
That’s it. Nothing earth-shattering, no profound words of wisdom, and nothing life-changing. Just that I wonder if at the “Marriage Supper of the Lamb” we will be hangingout with old friends and meeting new friends, and of course eating a good piece of wedding cake.
