Counting the days

I am a week away from getting married.

All of the conversations I have start with 'are you excited?' And finish with 'see you on your big day'. I get to talk about the things I am doing. I am thinking in equal quantities about work and wedding. I am trying to make sure things run smoothly in my longest absence during term time since starting my job. People are reassuring me 'if it's not done now don't worry about it' 'you will find a way to it figure out'.

I am organised... 4 months has flown by, but by the time I am married it will be it will be less than 1 hundredth of my life that I have spent planning for it. 

I am ready... I looked back at the post titled 'a decade' and wrote how I had one of the biggest surprises of my life as I turned 28. My 18th birthday was my only surprise party to date, my 28th birthday was my surprise cake from my now husband to be. Exactly 10 years apart, 2 incredible things happened and love played a major part in both. God played a major part in all of it. And I can see his hand all over it... From the tiny details to those events I consider to be the big events.

I know I am blessed to be in this position. I know I am looking forward to it. I know God is with me as I start married life.

Hello Liz. So good to know you through your profile on the blogger. I am also glad to stop by your blog "Giving it all up" and the post on it "Counting the Days". I am blessed to know you as God's servent bing in the full time ministry amongst Youth. Well I am in the Pastoral ministry for last 35yrs in the great city of Mumbai, India a city with great contrast where richest ofr ich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We also encourage young people as well as sdults from the West to come to Mumbai on a short / long term missions trip to work with us in the slums of Mumbai amongst poorest of poor to share the good news of Jesus Christ and to give them new hope, future and life. Since you are a Youth Worker we would love to sse some of the young people whom you serve will come to Mumbai to work with us during their summer/ Christmas vacation. Earlier we had many youth coming from England through the Organization called Oasis and Interserve. We also had young people coming from YWAM. I would be so glad to stay connected with you and see if any thing works out in partnership. My email id is :dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede. Looking forward to hear from you very soon.
