They Did

My little brother married his Jenni this weekend. It was beautiful and emotional and joyous.

I love weddings. They remind me of the promises that JD and I made to each other almost 3 years ago. They remind me of the love that Christ has for His Church, His Bride. They remind me of God's purpose for couples and the magnitude of a love shared for Him. I'm a big ol' sack of emotions during weddings and this one was no different.

I just happened to try on my dress 2 nights before the wedding to discover that the strap kit accompanying the dress did not hook or snap in. Thank God for mother's in law with sewing skills and spare time.

We are all so thrilled to have grown 1 more family member larger this weekend. Congrats Grant and Jenni. May your lives be filled with happiness and love and as many babies as you want. I love you both.
