Jeremy Caught Up to the Third Heaven

This last Saturday my co-blogger, Jeremy Felden, was married to the lovely woman next to him in the above picture, Allison Ewing. When he gets back from his honeymoon, his face shining like Moses', we'll put a veil over his head so he can render unto us more glorious blog posts for your edification and guidance.

I gave a toast at the wedding as one of the groomsmen. Here is the latter half of that toast:

The Psalms give us such a wonderful picture of what marriage is supposed to look like. Psalm 128 tells you, Jeremy, that you have the unique privelege of being a husband to a wife and, Lord willing, one day, also a father to children in the same sort of way that a farmer would "husband" or tend to a vine and cluster of olive shoots.

I know that this will work into you the unique sort of sanctification that only a marriage can bring, and that'll involve hard things as well as happy things. And you will be able to see and understand the things of God in a way that you otherwise could not, and you will be able to serve and glorify God in ways that you cannot do by yourself.

I've had many people in my life that I look up to and spiritually admire- giants in the faith. Most of these were in the latter half of their lives and some even approaching death. But their uniform testimony to me has been, "Dave, with the sole exception of my salvation in Jesus Christ, the greatest blessings, treasure, and source of joy in my life has been my wife, far and away." Allison will be that woman for you, and, should the Lord tarry, you will confess that of her in the sunset of your life.

So what is your reasonable response to this? Our charge to you is that you would treasure Allison today, tomorrow, and the next day knowing that is and will be true of her. Cheers!

The wedding went off wonderfully, and Jeremy and Allison were whisked off to their honeymoon soon after.

The day after the wedding, Jeremy and I had the following text message exchange:

DG: Hey man. Wanna go grab a beer somewhere if youre not busy?

JF: Sure. if im not busy.:-)

Funny enough I haven't heard back from him since.
