That movie used to be one of my favorites. Hopelessly in love. Lots of humor. Silliness. But at this point in my life, being happily married, I am turning my attention to others. I’ve always wanted to be a matchmaker but have never been successful. I know now that the great matchmaker is God.
I have a very good friend, let’s call her my best friend, my BFF. She would like to get married one day. I want this for her too. She is a beautiful person inside and out and she deserves a good man to be at her side, to comfort her, take care of her, to be her companion and a father to her son. Her marriage is not something I can push any more than I could push my own. Both of us will have to be patient and wait for her to find a husband, if it be God’s will.
I do look forward to her wedding though. I want to be there as a witness to her commitment before God. I want to be there from the beginning, a part of the community that vows to support her marriage. I want to share in her joy. We are there for our friends during sad times but how wonderful to be there for the good times! I want to smile at her and know that she has received a gift from God and that she has received the happiness she deserves.
