Fix You? Fix Me!

This weekend was my dear friend, Jesse Faris' wedding. (That's the first time I've really written her name in complete seriousness and legality.) It was the wedding of Nick and Jesse Faris. And let me tell you, it was a breath of fresh air. Although it's somewhat tiring to be a bridesmaid, it is a complete joy to share such an important day in the life of one of your best friends. Feeling with her that thrill of going to meet her groom (although it is less than 6 weeks until I go to meet mine!) was a privilege; praying with her before she and Nick officially left their families and individual selves for each other--what an awesome time blessed by God! And I mean awesome in the spiritual sense.

Before you ask, YES, it was even more excitement-inducing for me since mine and Jonathan's wedding is now 40 days away. Wow. Forty days. (Well, I guess less since it's after midnight.) My breath caught right before walking down the aisle ahead of Jesse. Caught because I will be walking down that very same aisle to meet my match and become his wife.

Jesse did walk down the aisle to "Fix You" by Coldplay. It was a perfect entrance for her. But I was thinking about the words later, and it kind of turned into sort of a barebones prayer: Lord, fix me. Fix me into a woman who can serve you by serving Jonathan as his wife. Fix me into the woman you've made me to become. Thank you for abundantly blessing me!
