now that the dreaded ghost month is over, expect a lot of happy occasions, like marriages, house-warming, etc to take place.
2 nurses are tying the knot soon. theirs & the grooms' families seemed happy.
a friend's daughter will also be getting hitched but the parents aren't too pleased because this one needs to transcend racial & religious boundaries. it's never happened in the family before so it came as a shock when we found out about it.
but the girl is a matured adult, trained in a top UK university & holding a decent corporate job, so presumably she's well aware of the implications of her decision.
circumstances like this often remind me of Samson who chose to marry a Philistine girl, even after his parents questioned his choice.
sometimes life just don't turn out the way we envisioned but that doesn't mean it's all bad. make lemonade, we're urged. make do with what we already have & build on that.
after all, we're also told, of faith, hope & love - the greatest is still love.
happy wedded bliss, everyone!
