It was the day before our Vow Renewal, and we were hard at work setting up the barn and making preparations for our big day…..
I had finally found the “vintage” napkins I wanted. (nothing like waiting until the last-minute)
I had lists in my head a mile long. This whole “Planning a ceremony while still being a Mom” thing is hard work! I was SO SO ready to join my life with my husband again, so ready for a standing covenant with Christ. Beautiful and untarnished.
Our friend, Shelby and mentor, Harold were coming out that evening to have praise practice in the barn. They suggested we all worship together, to invite the presence of the Lord to that place. We jumped at the chance.
It was beautiful. It was humbling. It was breathtaking.
Harold said it best when he said:
“Stop those lists running through your head, stop thinking about what needs to still be done…..The Lord is bringing the feast. Our job tonight, is to simply set the table.”
This place where we’d celebrate a God who makes all things NEW.
Bring the feast…..thank you, Father.
