God Laughing

I think that the saying goes, "Man plans. God laughs."  I think that the actual verse I am thinking of goes, "Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand."  I'm okay with that.  I think that He is laughing right now.  I have to laugh with Him.

I had a tentative idea of how everything would happen.  I have already told you that I wanted a Vegas wedding.  I even had a dress and was looking at wedding chapels.  When my pastor asked me about my engagement and asked about my elopement.  I was happy to tell him all about it.  Instead I am doing premarital counseling with my Associate Pastor and my sweet fiancé (He really is the sweetest.  He bought me a whole bag of black jelly beans, my favorite!!).  

We are filling out forms and we have couples homework.  I was talking about not having a wedding date and Geoff was like, "Trust in the Lord..."  Did my fiancé quote Proverbs to me?  He sure did!  I had all of these things up in the air and now they are finding their way.  Not my way, as much as I wanted to have a flashy glitzy wedding in Vegas, I am finding that God's way is better than my own.  

I still don't know what is happening.  My very intimate wedding is beginning to look different.  We are using words like "guest lists" and there is every possibility that a minister that has known me for several years will marry us.  We are still in the middle of a pandemic.  So, we are looking at a micro wedding.  I mean, there are people that still don't know that we are engaged.  I was talking to my close, dear friend, Rebecca and she looked at my hand and was like, "What's that on your hand?"  I felt horrible that she didn't know.  

Here I am making plans and there is every possibility that God is laughing.  BUT... He's not laughing at me, He is laughing with me.  And I am laughing with Him.  It's His world and I'm leaving my life in His big capable hands.  That being the case, I can afford to laugh... with my guy, while being in love.  Who knows what will happen?  I'm excited to see what will happen.  Praise the Lord!
