Friday's Quote

Love....tomorrow my friend's oldest daughter is getting married. I am wedding coordinator...this is my first time to do this. I am was honored to be asked. Actually, I thought it was a joke at first. I laughed....she was serious.... there is no way I could say no to her.
Brantley is so precious to my family. In so many ways Brantley and Andrea are so a like.
We are very proud of Brantley!! Because of the wedding tomorrow I decided to do some quotes on love.

Love is, above all else, the gift of oneself.
Jean Anouilh
(1910-1987)

To Love is to receive a glimpse of Heaven.
Karen Sunde

Love doesn't make the world go around, love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
source unknown

Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, belives all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails;
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a
New American Standard Bible

Do you have a favorite quote on love?
Do you have any words of wisdom that I can pass on to Brantley tomorrow?

Pray for beautiful cooler weather, for the parents, bride and groom, wedding party, photographer, reception, safe travels....and especially the wedding coordinator (me).

Did I tell you this is my first wedding to coordinate? can you tell I am nervous?
I got a new to the ankles dress and strapy shoes... I am excited, nervous...and tonight about 7 pm I will be a wild woman ....wanting to please the bride. Did I tell you how precious she is to our family? We love Brantley like she was one of our own. I am going to stop now....before I really work my self into a frenzy!

Oh ...I almost forgot. This is actually my 100th post. I will post 100 things about me soon! I know you don't want to miss that!!

Here's a quote- "We can only learn to love by loving."

Praying all goes smoothly for the bride and groom. I'm sure you'll do fine.

You have such a lovely blog!

Hi Darlene. This is such a lovely post - I can really sense your excitement. You've given us some very nice quotes here. I'm sure you'll do a very nice job as the wedding coordinator. In answer to your request for advice or quotes, the only thing I would add is this:

Love is more than just a feeling or emotion - it is a choice and an action. We have to choose to love even when it's hard or we don't want to, and we show our love, not by the words we say, but by the things we do.

And congrats on your 100th post! That really is exciting! I look forward to seeing your 100 things post. Blessings!

Darlene,
How awesome of you to do this for them! I have pictures of you in my mind running around with a mic in your ear like "The Wedding Planner" telling the best man what to say at the toast. I hope it went well.
