I have yet to learn how to put words in between my pictures and get the pictures to post in the order that I want them. The wedding pictures already posted are in reverse order from the way I intended.
Life is a school.

Here are three more pictures taken at the wedding, even though they are not of "the wedding".

The little girl is Chenzlie Elmore.

Regarding the current excitement between Israel and Hezbollah...

Numbers 33:55-56

55 But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those whom you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.
56 Moreover it shall be that I will do to you as I thought to do to them.’”

Joshua 23:12-13

12 Or else, if indeed you do go back, and cling to the remnant of these nations—these that remain among you—and make marriages with them, and go in to them and they to you,
13 know for certain that the Lord your God will no longer drive out these nations from before you. But they shall be snares and traps to you, and scourges on your sides and thorns in your eyes, until you perish from this good land which the Lord your God has given you.

Judges 2:1-3

1 Then the Angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said: “I led you up from Egypt and brought you to the land of which I swore to your fathers; and I said, ‘I will never break My covenant with you.
2 And you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars.’ But you have not obeyed My voice. Why have you done this?
3 Therefore I also said, ‘I will not drive them out before you; but they shall be thorns£ in your side, and their gods shall be a snare to you.’”

Whose side am I on?
I am on the side of Israel.
Hezbollah and the rest of the islamofanatic anarchists are the personification of Satan.
They hate people and seek nothing but the destruction of civilization as we know it.

They are no different than the communists of this world in that they believe that the end justifies the means, and care nothing about the destruction of human life in the attainment of their goals.
The "end" these nut-heads want has nothing to do with making people happy or free to do the normal things that most people want to do (work, get married, raise a family, worship God, etc), it is typically some "ideal" world where "all" people are "equal" and/or conform to some theoretical plan that they (the nut-heads) think is the way "things should be".

(deep breath)

Okay, now I feel better.

Actually, the little girl's name is Kingsley (Kinsley). I've known her since she was a baby.

I agree that these these people don't really care about making people happy, free, etc. They are using the term religion and islam in an attempt to justify their view of a world where the man gets all the fleshly pleasures he wants, and the women are nothing but his slaves. It is one of the more twisted views of God's will for people. They are quick to deplore moral attrocities, but at the same time, refuse to see themselves as part of the problem. When Jesus walked the earth in his fleshly body, he had a message for his own people that did such things (Matthew 23). One other point, care must be taken in describing this conflict using scriptures. While it is true that the Jews have paid for breaking the covenant and crucifying the Savior, it is also true that God would rather us focus on the spiritual battle. The current fights in the middle east, while deplorable and could affect us in some way in the future, are not prophesied of in the OT or NT as part of God's plan now, except from the standpoint of reaping what is sown.

Your scriptural references made me think of the "irritation" massive illegal immigration is causing our own country. I recently read an editorial about the immigration issue which clarified the differences between the influx of legal immigrants in our past history in stark contrast to the present day illegals. It strikes me that God's admonitions are as relevant today as they were when they were originally recorded. BTW, my paternal grandparents supposedly immigrated here because they were tired of the ethnic wars. Supposedly they were slavics. It has been nearly a century since they fled Europe and it's been still going on during my lifetime.
