The Wedding

Well, it's happened. I never thought this day would come. I'm officially...full. My friend, Rebekah, has finally tied the knot with John. Maybe I shouldn't say "finally." She is only a couple months younger than I. She turns 19 in 5 days.

This is the first wedding I've been to when they've been my own age. I can't imagine getting married now. Well, maybe if there was the right guy...anyway, they are super-happy :)

And my stomach is happy. The cake was delicioso! (That means it was very, very good. I'm a tough critic. Not much of a cake fan...just give me some guacamole and chips and you'll make me happy :)

May God bless these two with a God-centered marriage!

I just gotta you pronounce the "g" in guacamole like a "w" or a "g". Being a hispanic who is married to a caucasian I get a kick out of stuff like that.

Julianne said...

It's more of a "gw" sound. I start with a "g" sound and then roll into the "w". Which is the "right" way?

i love weddings, i really do.

i love the dancing, the food, the people, the dressing up (yea because i look so awesome).

Guacamole is actually pronounced with a "gw" sound or at least that's how they say it at Taco Bell. :D

Married at 18? I guess it's never too young to get married. As long as they have Christ, love and happiness, then it's all good. :)

Btw, perhaps you should put an e-mail link on your profile?

Their wedding was very nice and cake was awesome. I think I could have eaten a least one layer of it! Yummy

Joshua Ritchie said...

Having been far removed from my spanish heritage I can hardly remember. But I think the "g" sounds more like a "w"...but whatever Taco Bell says is good enough for me.

I realize I am off topic here, but I just wanted to say that I am impressed with your entire blog. You are a fantastic writer and thinker. I am glad to see another generation come up through with sound theology.May the Lord richly bless you.

Julianne, take your time, have fun, study, read, enjoy life. For marriage, I reccomend a book for anyone thinking about getting married:

"Sacred Marriage" by Gary Thomas.

BTW, FYI, I hae a new post talking about Calvin/Luther vs present day Calvinists:

Calvin vs. the Calvinists

Are you Antonio Banderas?

Rebekah got married? Wow, where'd that come from?

Wow John is good looking.


Rand said...

Yep, you are at the age now when your friends will "drop like flies" into marriage.

Beware, your turn may be coming up!
