Last night Liezl and I witnessed the blessed union of Jonathan Klimek and Clare Jolly in holy matrimony. The service was beautifully God centred and I was once again reminded that this picture of one man being joined together to one woman is a representation of the relationship between Christ and His church.
Anyway, in the interests of fun I have to relate this story. The bridal couple has the first dance and the second went to the bridal party. For the third dance they called up people in order of the period of time that they had been married. First the one month olds, then the six month olds, then those that had been hitched for a year. After they called up those that had been around for less than 5 years and then those that had been around for less than 10. I got ready to go up in the next group cause Liezl and I are in our 11th year of marriage and the DJ announced,
“All the rest can join the floor.”
“WHAT? I can’t possibly be old enough to be in the last group called! There’s something seriously wrong with this picture,” my mind skulked as I moved wearily to the dance floor my lovely wife in tow.
I’m a wee bit young for a midlife crisis but let’s face it, tactless DJ’s don’t help! :)
