Get Me to the Church on Time

At 2 p.m. this afternoon, Astrid and I will become officially married
in Gorinchem's Stadhuis Trouwzaal (City Hall Wedding Chapel), Holland.

This is the sundial on Gorinchem's Grote Kerk (Big Church), two blocks from our apartment.
I took this picture on 1 January before we knew the day/time of our wedding!

My best wishes to you both, Ginnie.

Excellent image here.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray. Thank you.
you got the time spot on, congratulations and best wishes for your wedding
Ginnie Hart: Today's the day, Derek! Thanks a million.
That's a nice graphic image and isn't life just full of coincidences! Especially that you met through blogging.

It's the realisation of both your dreams, so we'll forgive you if you're a little lax in new postings!

Hebben een mooie dag
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm retired, George, so I have no excuse for not posting. Today it's helping to pass the time. grin Thanks.

For pete's sake, get the girls to the town hall on time. Ding dong the bells are gonna chime!

Bloemetjes van Daalen
ik ga bloemen voor Soul halen

Ik had het zo bedenken - jij is nu H(e)art en Astrid worden Soul. En zo begrijp je de gedicht (twee regels??) een ietsje beter. Van Daalen is een bloemenzaak in Hoorn - als ie er noch is.

En nu niks meer van jullie af horen - op de vroegste dan maandag.

All the best.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, how sweet. Lilies of the valley and one day I want to visit Hoorn, Louis. Believe it or not, blogging right now is helping me to pass the time. I have already done almost all my work...and then will get dressed. So...this beats twiddling my thumbs. Just think, tonight when we go to bed, we will be wife and wife. smile
Superb capture and your framing is very good. Have a lovely day Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Antoine. This is the day!
wishing you all the happiness in the world Ginnie and knowing Astrid a wee bit i am sure you will have.

My very best wishes to you both smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tim. Knowing Astrid "a wee bit" says it all. I have finally come Home.
Something inside you knew Ginnie, have a very beautiful day! smile
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Linda. I love what the Soul knows before the head! Thank you.

A fine find, an aappropriate pic today!
„Mach es wie die Sonnenuhr, zähl die heiteren Stunden nur....“ - Today is one of your loveliest hours- and I'm accompanying you both with with my best wishes in heart and mind..!
Some time ago I recieved a text from a dear Dutch person, I like these words very much (sorry, only in Dutch, but Astrid can translate them), and I fixed the text to the wall above my writing table:

Dit is de dag!
Als u morgen opstaat, herhaal het thema dan.
Lees het, of zeg het zachtjes voor je op:
„Dit is de dag, die de Heer gemaakt heeft.
Laten we daarover juichen.“
Doe het overmorgen weer. En de dag daarna.
Begin er elke dag mee.
Ook als het een zware dag wordt:
„Vandaag moet ik...Vandaag ga ik...
Toch eerst zeggen: Dit is de dag, die de Heer
gemaakt heeft. Laten we daarover juichen.“
Welke dag is niet door God gemaakt?
Mooie dagen, maar ook de moeilijke.
Het zal u steunen en helpen.
Ginnie Hart: Believe it not, Philine, before we got out of bed this morning I said to Astrid (something I often say to her): "This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!" Ontzettend bedankt voor jij mooie woorden!
