I'm tired and I'm sore, and my night has just begun...

Just a short while ago, we finished moving all of my worldly possessions. Wow, I own a lot of stuff. I am no longer a resident of Arden Hills, MN. I now live in East St. Paul, MN. I'm also less than 48 hours from becoming a married man. That is of course assuming my bride to be makes in through the next 2 days. She's feeling the strain of the details at the moment. While I've been moving, she's been taking care of an endless number of things to make sure this is a fantastic event, and I appreciate that. We are being very Christ focused in our wedding. We're having a candle lighting ceremony at the end (similar to that which is done in many churches Christmas Eve) and challenging people to be a light unto the world. We pray that we are a light to those in attendance, and that everyone will take that and share it with others for the Kingdom.

Beyond having just moved and planning a wedding, I have a paper to write, so I suppose I'll get to that. It's only 11:53 PM, almost the perfect time to start a final paper 8-)

Likely I won't post again until we are back from our honeymoon in Cancun, Mexico. I can't wait to get there!

An Atlanta newspaper (Atlanta Journal Constitution has had two articles in it on the Cancun and Hurricane Wilma recovery effrots. The first article and the second article.

Congratulations on getting married. Make sure you take some photos so that you can post them on your blog of your wedding and Mexico.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, it's a wonderful life when you spend every day with the one you love!

A couple I know was in Cancun for the hurricane. Needless to say you'll have a hard time getting them to recommend the trip. Hopefully yours will be a lot better than theirs. :)

Thanks for stopping in Kevin! I just got home from the Groom's dinner and after dinner events, and it's time for bed. I get married in something like 17 hours!

Heh heh. I certainly hope you won't be doing any posting while you're on your honeymoon. ;)

Welcome to the East Side--it's a great area to live in. Where do you live, anyway? My family and I live on Hawthorne, about a block and a half east of White Bear Ave. We're actually going to attempt to put the house on the market this spring, though, so we can move closer to work--my wife is a high school English teacher at Centennial High School in Circle Pines, and I am the Youth Director at Our Savior's Lutheran, just a mile from the high school.

We are across the street from Harding High School. 4 or so blocks West of White Bear.
