Fun Fridays – August 25, 2017

This is a special fun Friday. Our youngest daughter is getting married today. This makes three married daughters.

At the risk of making myself a puddle of sentimentality, I can only say that I am proud of all our girls. Today, for the last time, I will be walking a daughter down the aisle. She may be all grown up along with her sisters, but I will always carry the below photo in my wallet and in my mind.

Congratulations Fiona, today is your day…but moreso is it a day to especially glorify God and to consecrate this union before Him.

Below are our “little” girls in a more recent photo

    My warmest congratulations Steve! There is hardly a deeper moment in life for a Dad, than to take that walk with his daughter, and place her well being into the hands of a another man, and ultimately God. My heartfelt prayers for you and yours, my friend. May your day be richly blessed!

    What a precious gift from God to have such wonderful daughters. Maybe a tear will fall today as dad walks down the aisle one last time holding the arm of his daughter. Congratulations to you and your family and for sharing with those you don’t know, these precious moments.

    Here’s a few useful Klingon phrases for the occasion:

    For Fiona: Hoch DIl [loD/be’]vam- this gentleman will pay for
    everything

    For Steve: qamuSHa’ – I love you
    mamI’ DaneH’a’? nItebHa’ mamI’ DaneH’a’? – Would you like to
    dance with me?

    For the guests: ‘IwlIj jachjaj -Cheers to Good Health
    Qapla’! – Success on your journey

    Wishing a wonderful memory filled day to all! May God richly bless this marriage forever!

    What a Blessing. Don’t forget, Jesus performed his first Miracle at a wedding because they are so special to Him.
    “…and the two will become one flesh…” Mark 8
    And God willing they will
    “…Be fruitful and increase in number;” Genesis 1:28
    Making even more Saints for the biggest Wedding of all.
    You and your wife obviously did a great job. Turn the page and anticipate a Glorious new chapter to a wonderful story, “Your Life.”
    All puns intended.
    Congrats to your expanding family

    Congratulations from me, too!

    Now you’ll be an empty-nester. That takes some getting used to. And then comes the fun of grandparenting!

    Congratulations, Steve! I’m sure raising three daughters–even church-ed ones–was a chore sometimes. Regardless, an empty nest need not be lonely. It can be fun, especially if each them (with their respective husband) can stand on their own married feet.

    And grand kids are a pleasant distraction.

    God bless you and your wife.

    Dear Steve L.

    Congratulation with your daughter’s Fiona’s marriage.

    Those are two good pictures.

    Look’s like they’re having a good time on both.

    I have yet to experience my son get married, but he’s still young πŸ™‚

    Look forward to your next post.

    Cordially,
    Edna Davidsen
