The wedding was beautiful, as we all knew it would be. How could a Sorge event be anything but amazing? We had loads of fun. At our table was the Right Reverend LaGuardia, the Wonderful Wenth's, Rachel Meier and the ever so foxy Jennifer Roberts. The line-up almost guaranteed non-stop conversation and laughs. Amy & Josh Farmer came over to eat chocolate covered strawberries with us during the toasts. Amy is an chocolate expert and quickly identified the dip on the strawberries as Dove Dark Chocolate and we ate a whole plate after Jennifer announced the anti-oxidant properties contained therein. It was really like taking a vitamin. Wes Hall sat behind us and was displaying his new green card from Homeland Security -- including the peculiar "666" at the end of his ID#. You can imagine the stir in the room at this finding. We are on odd bunch.

The most memorable part for me wasn't the ceremony, our table companions or even the cake straight out of Bride's Magazine. It was the 7 minute conversation I had with Gloria Willard standing toward the back of the room before the reception started. It started in a small group, but soon I could tell it was a Holy Spirit moment and we found ourselves talking one on one. We discussed the song of the Lord and how the sounds that will come forth from heaven will bring to the earth God's greatest glory and also release the end time judgments. My heart was burning and in those moments my spirit was full. I felt true fellowship and thanked the Lord for the "iron" He had sent my way. Gloria is one of those fabulous people that may not be dancing on the tables, but when she leans in to speak, you really want to be postured to listen. I hope I can be a little like her when I grow up.

Glad for the fun! I love unexpected encounters. Seemly plain ole' moments with plain ole' people full of a message from the Holy Spirit in what may seem a plain ole'conversation. I love His deserts. Yeah, I'm in agreement with Jen, would love to hear you do a teaching on "The Song of the Lord" someday.
