What an incredible and exhausting two weeks I've just experienced. Between wedding prep, the actual wedding, packing for Presbytery, Presbytery iteself and coming home to a home that we needed to put back in order, I feel like I've been hit by a semi! I will tell y'all what, i wouldn't trade these past two weeks for anything though. It's been wonderful and joyful and blessed.
I'm thankful for all the friends and family who came together to help us and to comfort us and to rejoice with us. The Lord has been so gracious in giving us a Church family and extended Church family who are so dear to us and who care about us (not to mention giving us some pretty amazing "Outlaws". ;)).
We will all miss Tiffany so very much, but there's a comfort in knowing that she's leaving to live her very own real-life fairy tale.

I was going to post some photos on the blog, but there are just so many! So, if you'd like to see some go to:

Have a blessed, wonderful week, my dear friends. May the Lord bless y'all exceedingly and abundantly.

In Christ's Love,

"Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art—
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike."

{John Keats}

My family is big and loud but they're my family. We fight and we laugh and yes, we roast lamb on a spit in the front yard. And where ever I go, what ever I do they will always be there.

{My Big Fat Greek Wedding}

Life is changing quickly - joy and sadness flow together in a twirling, wild stream of colors and hues.

Prayer would be appreciated for the next week.
