I’m up bright and early to finish off this Thanksgiving weekend with quite a bit of activity. I’m getting ready to leave for Orlando, where I will be co-officiating the wedding of Megan and Michael tonight at the Winter Park Civic Center. The wedding is a Catholic-Jewish wedding, and I am co-officiating with Father Tim. The Interfaith wedding ceremony is a great blend of traditions, and I look forward to writing more about it when I return.
On Sunday morning, upon my return, I am leading a memorial service for a wonderful man who was a legendary father and grandfather. The stories I have heard about him made me remember my own, and reminded me that even though I had a short time with him in my life, he left me with memories I will cherish forever, and a legacy that leads me through life even today. How fortunate we are if we have parents and grandparents who shower us with unconditional love. I know that this man’s presence was terribly missed at the family’s Thanksgiving this year, but they remembered him with joy and happiness, a true testament to the legacy he left behind.
Shortly after I return, I will be leaving for St. Maarten, where I will be wedding officiant for the destination wedding of Keith & Faith. This is an amazing power-couple! I cannot wait to spend time with them and their families, and I know this trip is going to be another life-changing experience. I love my job!
Stay tuned, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving weekend.
Oh – PS – GO GATORS!
