I’d Love To…


But I just can't!

Years ago, someone shared this bit of advice with me. When asked if you can do something, and you can't…try saying "I'd love to, but I just can't."

That advice might've come in handy for the pastor who was asked to do my son and his fiance's wedding this summer. My son–who's in the Marines–active duty.

Here was the pastor's response: "I have reservations about how to get the premarital counseling done. I'll think about it but probably not."

Ask me if I can feel good about that response? "I'd love to, but I just can't."
