Welcome back to Literacy Musing Mondays.
Celebration and the beauty of love centered my life Saturday as my older brother married the love of his life. I loved the scripture that my brother-in-law, who performed the ceremony, shared. It is the traditional scriptures read at weddings, but the sound of it pleased my ears. He read from 1 Corinthians 13: 4- 8 about the quality of love.
4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.8 Love never ends.
As the wedding continued, I sat amazed at the miracle of love. How God brings together and unites two people as one. My brother found the love of his life. She is beautiful in heart and spirit.
I hope you will pray for my sister-in-law. Her name is Linda, and she has a cancerous tumor on her lungs. To remove it, they will have to stop her heart, but my brother and his new wife are proceeding in faith. Linda is going to try radiation therapy first.
The marriage made me cry, but at the same time, I marvelled at how good God is. He brought together two wonderful people when they need each other the most.

“There is beauty in the mess.
God sees your mess too. Except, He doesn’t turn away.
He never disowns you, turns up His nose or pretends you don’t exist.
Instead, He wants to take you by your sin-covered hands and welcome you into His home. He wants to show you off and call you His own.”
This post really brought tears of joy and hope to my heart. I highly recommend you read it today
