Four Weddings, A Funeral, and a New Life....

That's life as they say.....c'est la vie (en francais) can change in an may seem like the end of the world at times....and then you realize that its actually just the beginning of a new one.....a better one....the one you were meant to be in.....Don't ask me why things happen....I ask the same question myself....pardon the cliche however, but I believe that everything happens for a purpose.... I've learned not to fight it, complain or despair....when I compare my own infintesimally small wisdom to that Wisdom which gonverns the universe, I must yield.....yield and trust that I have placed my life in the right hands..... "Do not be afraid" - John Paul II Angelo de los Angeles

I almost got married once too.....I chose a passage to be read at the ceremony.....instead, I read it to a friend years later.....she liked it enough to ask me to read it at her own wedding:

Anns_attempt_at_taking_a_picture_of_me "Now I will show you the way which surpasses all others. If I speak with human tongues and angelic as well, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong, a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and, with full knowledge, comprehend all mysteries, if I have faith great enough to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give everything I have to feed the poor and hand over my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous, it does not put on airs, it is not snobbish. Love is never rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not prone to anger; neither does it brood over injuries. Love does not rejoice in what is wrong but rejoices with the truth. There is no limit to love's forebearance, to its trust, its hope, its power to endure. Love never fails. Prophecies will cease, tongues will be silent, knowledge will pass away. Our knowledge is imperfect and our prophesying is imperfect. When the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. When I was a child I used to talk like a child, think like a child, reason like a child. When I became a man I put childish ways aside. Now we see indistinctly, as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. My knowledge is imperfect now; then I shall know even as I am known. There are in the end three things that last: faith, hope, and love, and the greatest of these is love" 1 Cor. 13:1-13

Love is God (not just another cliche)
