royal wedding

For the past two weeks, I have been home alone because my roommate has been out of town. I haven't been super scared or freaked out, but I have been a little more paranoid aware than usual. So at 3:30 AM Friday morning, I woke up because I thought a weird noise. I was in between sleep and being awake, and it turned out to be nothing. The dogs were lying in the driveway passed out, so obviously nothing had happened. But since I was shaken up awake and alert, I figured, hey, why not watch the Royal Wedding?! So I headed on over to cnn.com, watched the wedding coverage from 3:30-5:30, went back to bed at 5:30 until 6:30, and then got up for school. I may or may not have gotten to school after the bell rang...

Anyways, I loved watched the wedding because I felt as though I were watching history transpire before my eyes. The ceremony was beautiful and the bride was radiant. What I loved most about the ceremony was the Scripture from Romans 12 and the Bishop of London's predication. My favorite part of the ceremony (other than the vows) was this quote, which is so full of truth:  

"The spiritual life grows as love finds its centre beyond ourselves. Faithful and committed relationships offer a door into the mystery of spiritual life in which we discover this: the more we give of self, the richer we become in soul; the more we go beyond ourselves in love, the more we become our true selves and our spiritual beauty is more fully revealed." - Bishop of London


Y'all know how quote-happy I can get. But seriously, this might just be my new favorite. I don't even know how to begin to unpack it all. I won't even try. Just let that marinate for a while, folks.
