Give me strength

Jeremy and Jenae's wedding is Saturday, sprinkling activity through my days between now and then. I'm reading Scripture reading and leading a prayer—unusually, I'm also responsible for selecting the passage, which is an honor. I've selected Ephesians 3:14-21:
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Beforehand, there's a cookout at Jeremy's family's church tomorrow evening, the rehearsal on Friday, plus I need to pick up their gift and get a suit or jacket.

And that's just for the wedding—Michele's birthday party is Friday evening, and Grace On Tap is Sunday night. Plus work. So I'd better get used to being busy for a while. I could use some of that strengthening in power through His Spirit myself.
