Weddings, Singleness and Joy

As a young man I confess that at times I’ve found weddings to be a painful reminder of my singleness and unfulfilled desires to be a husband and father someday. With every year that passes by, I get older and watch as so many younger than me meet their soulmates and marry. I remember the days when I was in my late teens and longing with expectation and hope that I would soon find the girl of my dreams.

The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. –Psalm 126:3 It has been some time since I sat down to write. This life we live is never without it’s twists and turns and unexpected journeys. The past several years have taught me much, and yet I know I have so far to go. Along the way, my sweet Savior has been so very faithful in His steadfast love and kindness. To Him I owe everything, to Him I give all the glory for the work of sanctification He has done, and continues, in...
