Joy, wind, flowers, laughter, wild color, family, love, sunburn, Marx brothers, more laughter, skillet cookies, thanksgiving.  Really good days.

“This was the Lord’s doing; It is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Psalm 118:23-24

What a summer.  Full of wood (?), flowers, 5-wrap bracelets, rice pudding, road trips and amazing times with friends.  (above, the girls with mannequins from a haircutting class)   Also hard times, prayer, laughing and skillet cookies, (not shown).

“You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you;
And My people shall never be put to shame.  Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:
am the Lord your God and there is no other.  My people shall never be put to shame.”

Joel 2:26-27

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord.”  Proverbs 18:22

I’m so excited for the marriage of Jacob and Rebecca, and really in awe of the God who brought these two together.  May you be blessed in your marriage, and many congratulations to you both.

Joy Ahead

In just one short week, this girl is getting married.

I am just so excited for her. She has been such a good friend to me – we’ve been through a lot together.  It will be a joy to stand up with her and watch her take this tremendously big step.

 May the Lord be glorified in your marriage, Rebecca and Jacob!
