In Others’ Words: Celebrate
“Love one another and you will be happy. It’s as simple and as difficult as that.” ~Michael Leunig (1945-), Australian poet & cartoonist
It’s wedding week at the Vogt household.
This Friday, July 20, my daughter marries a wonderful young man named David Baker.
It may take me a while to get used to that.
My husband and I have watched Amy and David fall in love. I’ll share a bit of their story with you: Within weeks of their first date, Amy came into my writing office and told me, “I’m going to marry him.”
I didn’t say anything. As a mom, you learn not to stay quiet when your twenty-something daughter makes an announcement like that. I was already praying for them — not in an “Oh, no!” kind of way. More of a “What’s up, God?” kind of way.
So, I kept on praying.
And my husband joined me.
And here we are.
So pardon me while I excuse myself from blogging and Facebooking and tweeting this week. The past few weeks have been all about wildfires and computer viruses and the like. Now it’s time to celebrate Amy and David.
And the Vogt Family knows how to do just that.
See you in a week.
