Great advice!


I recently had the incredible privilege of conducting the wedding of one of my best friends. And as we stood there under a magnificent tree, I wanted to make sure the words I shared with the couple were both profound and personal. I’m not sure if I hit the mark, but here’s the verse I used, and three takeaways I got from it:

Seize life! Eat bread with gusto,
Drink wine with a robust heart.
Oh yes – God takes pleasure in your pleasure!
Dress festively every morning. 
Don’t skimp on colours and scarves.
Relish life with the spouse you love
Each and every day of your precarious life.
Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange
For the hard work of staying alive. 
Make the most of each one!
Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily!
– Ecclesiastes 9:7-10 MSG
