It's exciting for us because we know his story of relationships. We've seen grace bring our friend his bride.
We aren't just guests at their party or witnesses to their big day. My own groom isn't just one of the men standing up with our friend, and our Boy-Man isn't just another one of the kiddos included.
We were asked to join our friend in his matrimony and that's a big deal.
It doesn't just mean we agreed to be there that day. We agreed to join their joys and struggles--their story of love in the *whirl and twirl* of life.
Life is hard and marriage harder. It takes grace for them both. And part of that grace is community.
We will join our friend's marriage story and ask hard questions like "How is it going? Really?" And we will encourage them to Keep on when they face the temptation to give up.
That's a role I take with seriousness, thrill and honor.
"Write for five, short, bold beautiful minutes...
Unscripted and unedited...
Without worrying if it's just right or not."
