God bless you with discomfort
At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships
So that you may live deep within your heart
May God bless you with anger
At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless you with tears
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and To turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with enough foolishness
To believe that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.

2) what am i doing (This is for something else...)
3) what am i doing (this is for another something else..)
4) it's been one year.
5) guide me, guide me, guide me.
1 Peter 3:14-15a
14But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened." 15But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord....

a lot of people ask me what kind of wedding I want to have.
with a lot of thinking, I've decided this:
small. intimate. relaxed. really easy schedule.
outdoors, gorgeous light, preferably in the fall.
so much of my life is so compact, so structured, and daily overflowing with stress and work.
i can't remember 5 days of relaxation in the last 3 months for me. its almost to the point of sickening, but in the place that I am in in life, that's the way it has to be. if i want a wedding that reflects the opposite of my everyday life, then i want a wedding that feels like a 'break', not a 'stressful event'. we celebrate best when the subject of our celebration is much and the amount of work is less.
that's what i dream of: a plain awesome wedding.
