Tomorrow I marry Amy. That's enough to make me feel like I'm walking on air.

There are so many incredible things about being married to Amy that it'll take my lifetime to learn them all. But the wedding itself has also been amazing, particularly in that it's been so much larger than just something about us alone. We've had the power of the gospel embodied to us through our church again and again—their eager desire to serve and celebrate with us continues to catch us off guard, over and over. This is what the new humanity of the Kingdom looks like. How wonderful to be drawn into it.

We both have family in town, trickling in over the past few days. That they can be with us is another huge blessing. We had lunch with everyone who was in at the time yesterday afternoon, and another gathering of out-of-towners hosted by our communitygroup today. I hope our families get to see a glimpse of the Jesus we've seen in them.

Naturally, there's hasn't been a lot of time to write, but neither has it been as stressful and crazy as one might think. Everything's been narrowed down to the essentials, just the way we like it, and the richness God is bringing into our lives is clearer and stronger than any of the niggling details (most of which are being handled for us!). It's good to be overshadowed by grace.
