I don’t profess to know when He will come back. I do believe these couples have sought His Will for their loves, and I certainly have seen the evidence of that.
Next weekend, Niece Maria Slaubaugh marries Carey Swartzentruber:
The same day, five hundred miles away in Ohio,
Certain Man’s Uncle Allen Yutzy marries Connie Prater.
And then in three weeks, Nephew Joe Slaubaugh will marry Tasha Troyer
Again, in Ohio!
And the same day and the same town
as a Kauffman Family Reunion.
This is the family of Certain Man’s birth mother, Katie. She passed away when he was four, and her family holds a warm and important piece of his heart. Most of his mother’s immediate family are Old Order Amish, and he doesn’t get to see them often, so he is quite intent on attending the reunion in the morning and Joe and Tasha’s wedding in the afternoon. Certain Man’s Wife is tired just thinking about it.
But the truth is, we don’t have to do it all at once. It is just one day at at time. And, quite thankfully, I am not in my dear Middle Sister’s shoes. She has two children getting married two weeks apart. It was unnerving enough to have two son’s getting married two months apart — but to have a daughter getting married and then two weeks later, 500 miles away, a son getting married –!!!! Let’s just say that she sure could use our prayers.
And blessings all around to the happy couples.
