Wedding Bliss...

What a glorious weekend....celebrating the union of two in Christ.  Words spoken from Grandfathers from each family...each speaking from their 60 yrs. of marriage.

All five siblings speaking sweet words...emotional words... The youngest always has the hardest time letting go...the sweet brother just pulling her over to sit on his lap as she attempts to speak through her tears of "losing" a brother....tears of joy for gaining a sister.

Welcoming Jenny into the fold:)
    
                                                      The baby bump!!!!
                                                        A treasured moment.


                                                               Pure bliss...

~joy of two becoming one
~getting all things done on time
~servant's hearts
~Shaun Groves "All's Grace"..playing on repeat... in the car as I darted places...
~wonderful weather...a little hot..no rain
~a sweet family joining ours
~Godly heritage on both sides
~seeing the mantle placed on my son...he wears it well
~friends gathering to join in the celebration
~peace and calm even through the audio trouble
~beautiful vows crafted carefully to reflect the depth of the covenant they made
~seeing my daughter's belly growing
~friends working tirelessly after the wedding
~dear friends gathering at our house after the wedding to eat..share...laugh
~being a family of 9
~on this Labor Day...giving thanks for the labor of love of many to make this weekend special!
~God's love reminding me of the scripture I read... Col.3:12-14...I charge myself with these words too
~words fail to express the thankfulness in my heart for God's mercy and kindness to us as a family.
