Advent 2012 Day 22
“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.” (Matthew 25:1-4 NIV)
Christmas is a time of preparation. Some people start shopping and planning the week after Christmas for the following one. It’s a big day in our lives, and we take all precautions to make it as special as possible.
But Christmas isn’t the only day of the year that warrants our attention and time. There are birthdays, graduations, summer picnics, Independence Day, and anniversaries to plan. And of course the single most important personal event, our weddings.
I began planning my wedding when I was four-years old. I had no clue who I’d marry (I didn’t meet “Mr. Right” until after I graduated from high school), but I knew I would get married someday.
See you in a twinkling,
