Hair up? Hair down?
Hair part up and part down?
Red shoes? White shoes?
Black shoes? Barefoot?
Red roses. White lilies.
Curly willows. Glitter twigs.
Piles of meatballs. Platters of cheese.
Cups of toothpicks and stirrer sticks.
Don’t leave out the programs.
Don’t forget the lights.
Flicker candles on and off.
Do they work? Do we need more?
Who has the hammer, pliers, wrench,
electrical cords, drill and screwdrivers?
Why do we need to take the contents of the garage to set up a wedding?
Did you remember the ladder?
Chafing dishes, plates and goblets.
Tablecloths, napkins, forks and spoons.
Food and drinks and candies and cookies.
Little cakes and one b-i-g cake.
Can we overdose on sugar?
Pillars. Draping. Tables.
Better rent a truck.
And several strong guys.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, please give us strength to prepare for celebrations but please remind us that the reasons for the celebrations are more important than the preparation or even the celebrations themselves. Fill us with joy from you. Amen.
WHAT ABOUT YOU: What are you celebrating in the near future?
