Ordination

Yesterday is behind me (us) now. It was a nice day. A long day. K was ordained as a Deacon and I got to wear my NEW outfit (see previous post).

The first time I saw K at church I thought, "He's kinda cute." He went and sat a couple of rows ahead of me and as he passed our eyes locked and it was like I was in a trance, seeing nothing but him, hearing nothing but the birds chirping as he moved in slow motion, jacket flowing behind him. Well, not quite. He actually didn't notice me at all. That's when I thought, "Ehh, he wouldn't be interested in me anyway." (How's that for self-confidence?) It wasn't til a few years later, after seeing him around church very infrequently, that he approached me with the line, "What kind of mileage do you get in your car?" That threw me cause then I wasn't sure if it really was a line or if he just liked my BMW. Turns out he liked me. *Yay*

Here we are, almost four years later, with the sweetest little by-product of our union, and we're still happy, looking forward to many, many more years together.

I wish everyone could have what I have (or better).

what does being ordained as a Deacon, mean for K? i assume, more responsibility and more of a leadership role?

love the suit!

I'm not sure what all it means except that he can now participate in the serving part of Communion. I assume he'll be expected to continue to be serious about his duties. In general, Deacons take care of the church, do communion, collect offering, and various other things.
