going to get married

Well, friends, it's about that time. Tomorrow morning at 7, my mom, sisters and I are packing up and headed out for Chapel Hill. I'm getting married on Saturday and it's totally crazy and exciting! I feel like my brain is already splintering into a thousand pieces when I think about all that needs to be done. But strangely, and mercifully, I also feel very peaceful and content. I just have to breathe every now and then. Things will go wrong (like the expected rain on Saturday, and other things I simply can't predict), but at the end of the day, I get to marry Guion. And that's all that really matters.
This morning, I read this verse, which charmed and calmed my heart. It's a passage that talks about God's presence among the Israelites as they wandered in despair:
"Your way was through the sea,
your path through the great waters;
yet your footprints were unseen."

(Psalm 77:19)
It communicates to me this beautiful idea of God's omnipresence. Even when we fail to detect him, he's there, treading the same ground. This is something I will strive to remember this weekend, and, hopefully, always.
This blog, my Flickr, and any other Internet presence I may have will understandably be on hold for a week or more. I have to get hitched, honeymoon, move to Charlottesville, and start my new job in a mere two weeks!
Thanks for the encouragement, support, and mutual excitement that's come from all of you out there. I shall return, a happily married woman!

Blessings on the next part of your journey. I am one of your "anonymous" readers for the last couple of years or so. I have truly enjoyed your posts, photos, and circle of family of friends. It is somewhat like following an installment series of Little Women. :)
I will hold you all in my thoughts and prayers on Saturday. God's Love shines through all kinds of weather and mishaps...and so will you.

It was good to see you at Grace's graduation. We, too, leave for a wedding tomorrow. Wish we were just driving to Chapel Hill! As we celebrate with J and K, we'll remember you and Guion and pray for sweet blessings on the day and joyous, frozen in time moments as you rejoice in God's goodness in making you two one.

Or on the other hand you should need to utilize open travel to navigate the city after you are subsided into your inn room. However, with a rental auto you're ready to investigate Islamabad on your coveted timetable; leasing an auto gives you more freedom amid your escape. Rent a car in Islamabad Say farewell to being held to the transport course and howdy to the advantages of a private ride.
