This is my last “ordinary” Saturday for a long time . . . At least, if the Lord tarries, and if He so wills.
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:

For Web 2

The same day, five hundred miles away in Ohio,
Certain Man’s Uncle Allen Yutzy marries Connie Prater.

For Web 3
We are not able to go to that one, unfortunately.
But we will think often of them, believe me!

Then in two weeks, Oldest Son will marry Babe.  (again in Ohio!)
For Web 1
Wait a minute!!!  Do I see some resistance here?

And then in three weeks, Nephew Joe Slaubaugh will marry Tasha Troyer

For Web 4

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.

  1. Wow I do feel for Sarah and the rest of her family, I didn’t know that Joe and Maria were engaged to be married, but congrats to them and welcome new family members to the big family…May God bless each of these couples on their special day and for the rest of their lives
