A Wedding . . .

 

 

Weddings encompass many things, a legal contract, a spiritual contract, a party, a joining of 2 people and a joining of 2 families.

I recently attended the wedding of one of my nieces in California.  There wasn’t much time to plan, however I was blessed to be be able to attend.  My brother, sister-in-law and niece were very happy to see me and my youngest sister.

It’s always great for people to be happy when you arrive and sad when you leave. (Make sure you don’t outstay your welcome. :0) )

I have attended many weddings during my lifetime. I have taken in recent years to pray fervently for the couple and try to remember their wedding anniversary with a card, call or text. It’s important to celebrate the wedding but even more important to celebrate the MARRIAGE and the COUPLE.

Weddings are a wonderful time to build on established relationships while forming new ones (with the new in-laws).  My new nephew is a very kind and loving person and I think he and my niece will be very happy together.

I hope that my visit strengthened the bond with my brother and his family while building a new bond with my newest nephew.

In the coming weeks I will update the family tree with the wedding date and and my new nephew.  Why don’t you take this opportunity to find out more about a marriage of one of your ancestors. Share this with the rest of your family!

I am a part-time blogger and a full time observer of people and culture. I have been researching my family history for over 20 years. I previously served as President and President-Elect (Vice-President) of one the local genealogy groups. I’ve conducted genealogy lectures and training's for corporate organizations and family history centers. I have researched my maternal and paternal sides going back 7 generations. With all that work, there is still more to discover. My genealogical goals for 2014 are to submit to libraries and history centers, family history books covering several of my family lines. I am available for consultation.
