This past week has been very busy getting everything ready for the wedding. We had to call in the troops today to get some crafty details taken care of. So thankful to have friends willing to step in at any minute to help out.
We have 3 days left to finish any last minute details. When this journey began we were already less than 90 days away from planning a wedding. I am so thankful for the short amount of time we have had to plan. There hasn't been any room to say "we'll decide later" or any room to change our minds. The greatest thing for me will be seeing Tony walk Jordan down the aisle on Saturday and to give her to David. Everything else will be a bonus with all the detailed stuff coming together. There is absolutely no doubt David is the one that God has created for Jordan. It has been such joy to watch their relationship grow and to see how they have honored the Lord through everything. Their first kiss will be at the ceremony and what a day of celebration it will be.
My health has been great and God has given me extra strength and energy to get through each day.
Exodus 4:31 "And the people believed; and when they heard that the Lord has visited the people of Israel and that he had seen their affliction, they bowed their heads and worshiped." The Lord has been so faithful and good to me this year and my heart wants to continue to worship Him. I know there are a lot of people hurting and going through difficult times right now, but God promises to never leave us or forsake us. We have to learn to worship him in the good and the difficult days and know that He alone is God.
We have family beginning to arrive tomorrow. We will be blessed to have all 7 of our grandchildren together this weekend and I'm looking forward to a big family picture. Our house will be full throughout each day with family friends and we are so thankful to enjoy this time of celebration together.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
