Stolen Observations

While browsing Mrs DeVries' blog this morning on break I came across her ponderings regarding her upcoming (now past) wedding. I'd like to share what she wrote of God's presence in changing situations back in January:

I have been thinking about journeys lately, especially since Daniel and I are about to embark on a fairly significant one: marriage. I am a conservative at heart; I do not like change. Beginnings are scary, and marriage is no exception. I am scared sometimes about whether we will have enough, love enough, work enough to survive life's expenses. I spend all day paying people's bills and wondering how we will ever make it in this world of overdraft and credit cards. Tonight I found these words from a good friend, who wrote them to me at the beginning of another journey, and I was humbled by my lack of faith:

"It is God to whom and with whom we travel, and while He is the end of our journey, He is also at every stopping place." -Elizabeth Elliot

Happy Matrimony, Sam!

Tomorrow afternoon, this crazy man (the *crazy* man, not the tomato-y man) shall be wed in holy matrimony to the beautiful Samantha Merrifield. (In case you're really out of the loop, that's me in the picture, not Samantha.) Yay! And I get to have a holiday for it!
