In less than 48 hours...

This morning we picked up our rings. We decided to have them engraved next year for the church wedding. We also bought a shirt for him and a pair of high heels for me. This afternoon I got my nails done (really enjoy that, but normally am not willing to pay that much just for nails) and my dress is ironed too.
I am really exited! Tomorrow morning we're off to Paderborn to help with the last set-ups etc. We're just hoping for sunshine on Friday.

Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Ephesians 5:22-33 (NIV)
