My daughter, Little E and I attended
a special event on Saturday.
A young woman, that we have known since she was
a child, was married. I won't share her age, but
I will say that she has waited a while for this day.
Her faithfulness in waiting for the man God
chose for her has been a testimony
of her trust in Him.
The flowers were pretty...
wildflowers tied with twine.
She wanted the bouquets to look as if
the flowers had just been picked...
and they did!
The centerpieces at the reception...
...the attendant's bouquets....
...and the arrangement at the head table
were all lovely!
The wedding cake...
...the groom's cake...
...and all the food was beautiful and delicious!
The people were lovely too...
our dear friends that "adopted" our family
a long time ago and have been
parents and grandparents to us.
My "Warm Springs" buddy and her husband.
Their son and Little E.
Not sure what expression that is on her face !
Another long time friend and her adorable grandson.
My sweet girl and one of her
...and with her Little E!
That's another funny face! :-)
Me and the mother-of-the bride.
She's waited a long time for this day, too.
(Her other two children are sons.)
Psalm 37:4 says, "Delight yourself in the Lord
and He will give you the desire of your heart."
But He doesn't promise it will come immediately...
...sometimes you have to wait!
I believe she would say it was worth it!
We are so happy for them. We pray that their marriage
will be long and happy....
a testimony to God's faithfulness...
and to theirs!
