Not Engaged Yet

Where are my marbles?

I just lost them!

I'm trying to write our programs. We haven't met with our minister yet, but at least now I know his name (FMIL called me and was NICE and HELPFUL!). But I figured I could at least get the songs, names, and a basic outline down.

Uhh, I forgot to make a copy of our song list before I gave it to the coordinator. Woops. I mean, I know I remember them.... but I can't remember whether it's Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra for our moms being seated. Did I make a post about that?

Also, I can't remember what readings I wanted. I want the Corinthians one.... you know... Love is this and that and so on. There was something else I wanted.... I think Katanne even has it as an option for hers. Didn't I say something about that?

I'm sure, SOMEWHERE I have all this written or saved, but I have NO IDEA where right now. I'm just fried. Can you guys help me figure out what I said I wanted?

    I wish I could be more help, b/c I'm pretty sure all of that info is posted around here somewhere,  but I'm kind of busy, but I wanted to say congrats on your FMIL being a pod person!

    I think it's Corinthians 13:4-something, the "love is patient" part.

    Hetshup, I LOVE YOU RIGHT NOW. Thank you SO much. I was starting to feel a little crazy. <3

    I may have found the reading, too:

    From the Beyond Words Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith

    “They say they will love, comfort, honor each other to the end of their days. They say they will cherish each other and be faithful to each other always. They say they will do these things not just when they feel like it, but even -- for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health -- when they don’t feel like it at all. In other words, the vows they make could hardly be more extravagant. They give away their freedom. They take on themselves each other’s burdens. They bind their live s together... The question is, what do they get in return?

    “They get each other in return... There will always be the other to talk to, to listen to... There is still someone to get through the night with, to wake into the new day beside. If they have children, they can give them, as well as each other, roots and wings. If they don’t have children, they each become the other’s child.

    “They both still have their lives apart as well as a life together. They both still have their separate ways to find. But a marriage made in heaven is one where a man and a woman become more richly themselves together than the chances are either of them could ever have managed to become alone.”

    -- Frederick Buechner

    Yay for someone else holding your marbles! 

    We used 1st Corinthians 12:31-13:8a.

    Brothers and sisters
    Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts
    But I show you a still more excellent way.

    If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love
     I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal
    And if I have the gift of prophecy
     And comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge
     If I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing
    If I give away everything that I own
     And if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing
    Love is patient, love is kind
    It is not jealous, is not pompous
     It is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, 
    it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth
    It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
    Love never fails.
