Well, I don't know why blogging has been so slow lately....not much to say? That can't be true because I'M PLANNING A WEDDING!! Haha. Well, hopefully there will be more posts soon both wedding related and life in general. This post will be a bit of both.
Wedding plans have started being made and it makes me so excited. There are many things that have already been checked off the list. Dress...done. Photographer...done. I have loved making plans so far and some of you may be surprised by that. During my sister's wedding planning process I determined in my mind that I didn't care about details, she and my mom could make the big plans, and I wanted ONE shower. haha. Everyone told me, "You might feel differently once it is your wedding!" Ok...ok....I have changed my mind. I am really enjoying this planning process so far! In fact, I have found that since being engaged, I check my email over and over again. I tell myself, "Laura, between now and the 10 minutes that have passed, you have not received an email!" I also could spend hours on Etsy, Pinterest, and Style Me Pretty. Mom, Amy, and I talk about plans for the ceremony and reception and I cannot wait to make it all come to life.
However, lately, I have been feeling a bit guilty. I have no doubt that the Lord is all about weddings. I have been convicted about my time and how I spend it. I want to be balanced in all aspects of my life. I am excited about my wedding...but more than all of the little details, the dress, the flowers, etc., I want my wedding to be glorifying to the Lord. I want it to be an expression of Brett and I's love for the Lord. I want people to see more than a beautiful dress, pretty flowers, and fun details. I want the gospel to go forth and for people to see Christ in our wedding. If there is one thing you can pray, it is that Brett and I would both keep our eyes fixed on Christ during this planning process and that our decisions would glorify Him. Don't worry! I'll keep you updated on plans!!
"Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready." --Revelation 19:7
