where’s there’s a “will ya” there is a way


Or  a wedding.

Now, all that stuff about engagements and courting is really nice to talk about.  Or joke about. But it should be taken quite seriously. Especially since, no matter how surreal, annoying, amusing, et cetera, everything may seem in theory, in real life it’s…worse.

Oops. I’ll get in big trouble for that. I shouldn’t pollute this website with my own personal opinions. I should be even and balanced. That’s my goal. To be the “Fox News” of the blog world. (HA!)

But in all seriousness I am writing this solely to extend my wholehearted congratulations towards my sister Emily and Tyler Upchurch. May heaven bless you and may you live together in peace. May all your futures be pleasant ones, Not like our present ones. May you both be favoured with the future’s of your choice, may you live to see a thousand reasons to rejoice. All that good stuff.

May you be kept immovably in the love of Christ, and if I may say so, with little regard for how this may be taken, may HIS love be the one great fountain from which your love for one another springs. I love y’all both, and may God bless you.

Tyler: since I hear it is the Groom’s privilege to select groomsman, I’ll let you no that (I mean, know that) I am perfectly willing to accept such a position. Provided you and Trey and Dad have sufficient manpower to drag me there under such a threat. That’s all.

Emily:  I’ve always favoured the “Imperial March” as good wedding music.

Both: If you see the need, I would love to perform a ceremony for you. Provided, of course, that you wouldn’t be extremely offended when I could not resist the urge to say, “Mawwiage is what bwings us together today. Mawwiage, dat bwessed awwangment. That dweam, wivin a dweam.

This is for my dad:

And finally, a great summary of the marriage:

“Even In marriage, the one to look to is God. The ideal in marriage comes when each partner looks to God to meet His or her own needs and looks to the other partner with a heart to meet that partner’s need. Then they can both rejoice when God meets each of their needs through the other! This is love rather than lust.”

    Oooh… Jake, I’m sensing a future for you in wedding planning!

    Imperial march, cheesy ceremony, unwilling groomsmen – what’s your opinion on cake? Lots of it? Decorated with starwars paraphernalia or Ethiopian colors?

    Emily, don’t let him pick out your veil or anything. He might favor a queen Leia headdress or a darthvader mask.

    Shoot. I made a reference to a musical piece that I happen to be fond of, and that automatically makes me a Star Wars junkie.
    But, forgive me, I’m being defensive.

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
