Tears of Joy and Gratefulness
I can truly say I am so tired that my eyes hurt. My eyes have been shedding tears of joy and sorrow over all the events of the past two weeks. The last two weeks I prepared for my daughter's wedding...tears of joy, while also hearing daily reports on my father. One week before our daughter's wedding my father had a stroke...so tears of sorrow. Each event ended in tears of gratefulness. The wedding was a "TOTAL GOD" thing and my Dad arrives home today continuing his recovery...an answered prayer also.
Her three oldest brothers marched down the aisle in front of her and her Dad. Her two youngest brothers, one a groomsman and Benjamin the ring bearer. My Ethel saved the day by coming to my rescue and helping from sun up to sundown to prepare all the decorations for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding. She is the definition of true friend.
So through my tired fingers I am leaving you with some of the first pictures.
We now enter our second unemployment period in six months, while looking back at the beginning of this roller coaster ride and recounting God's faithfulness. Standing in the reception room, which was overflowing with 220 guest...we only expected 100...we stood as a couple amazed at the goodness of our God and "oh how He loves you and me!"
