A friend of mine called a couple of months ago. Judi would really like for you to preside at her wedding. Would you be free to do that?

Honestly, I really don’t have time. When I agreed to do it, I didn’t realize how many plates I’d have in the air. But I still wouldn’t change it.

I love to do weddings, especially when it’s someone I know and care about. It’s one of the holiest moments in life. When else in your life do your words have such significance? “By the power invested in me by the State of California and the authority of God our Father, I pronounce you husband and wife.” Wow!

We’ll be making two trips this weekend–one for the reception and one for the wedding. They will take a big chunk of time. But I think it’s worth it to be able to contribute such a great gift to the lives of two people.
