The Weddings of Walmart

Have you heard of the People of Walmart?

If you haven’t, it’s a site where people post pics

of ridiculous situations they’ve encountered

while at the store.

Then, the internet takes the pics and throws pies at them.

Mostly pies made out of poo.

Did you know that there is a wedding equivalent of this?

Where people post pictures of other people’s weddings

for the world to throw poop-pies at?

I do.

I know this because my wife and I’s wedding photos

ended up on one, several in fact.

Changes things. Everyone loves to laugh at the clown.

But what if you are the clown, what then?

Well, then you begin to realize that people

can be very mean, especially behind closed doors;

but that is part of life.

If you’re doing anything worth doing,

people will be ready with pies.

You will get covered, but KEEP GOING.

We’re married to this day, seven years in July.

Couldn’t be happier, or more grateful for such a wonderful partner.

You know what’s really funny?

We served pie at our wedding.

Cake just wouldn’t do.

 

 

Find Me in the Rivers

Find me in the rivers, the streams,

the mountains the valleys the oceans the lakes

the deserts

the heights and the depths

find me as a shade, find me in the breeze

find me as a hummingbird,

flittering about, suckling the sweet nectar of life

find me at your side,

holding your hand,

telling you that I love you

because I do, always and forever.

Let us kiss the wind and fly away.

Lean

What do we mean when we discuss love and beauty?

The ads throw out those words all the time.

Just because those words sound nice doesn’t make them

any more worthwhile than “biscuit” or “hamburger.”

 

Love and beauty must be experienced to be real,

it lies in a hand-hold, it blossoms in a word of encouragement

With no effort at all, we can tear down someone struggling to get back up,

to believe in themselves.

 

We can believe in them. We can uphold their worth.

My friends, be there for those who need it

and we all need it from time to time.

 

Let us join together and not only sing, but live out the simple words,

“lean on me when you’re not strong.”

Have Faith in God

Have faith in God:

-when the journey is long

-when the lights are all gone

-when you’re hurt & in pain

-when you’re left out in the rain

Have faith in God:

-when you experience wonders untold

-when you inherit all of the gold

-on days when you do not feel old

Have faith in God:

-in every season

-for every reason

-because He is pleasing

Have faith in God
