Bachelorette blessing



I had a 30 hour respite from being a mommy this weekend to go celebrate with my soon to be sister-in-law at her bachelorette party. At dinner last night, she asked the married ones at the table to offer our best advice. So advice was given and taken and discussed, but before I leave Dallas, I wanted to take some time to confer not just advice, but blessing over this upcoming union. Amber's still zonked out in bed (I've never met such a night owl), so I'll type out my blessing to you, my dearest sleeping beauty:

Amber, may your love for your husband be always patient, always kind. May it not be envious or boastful or proud or rude. May it not be self-seeking, but self-giving. May you not be easily angered or keep a record of wrongs. May you not rejoice with evil, but delight in the truth. May your love always protect, always trust, always hope, always persevere. May your love never fail for my brother, your husband, God's son.

Because it's all about Love.
