Wedding Bells
















My brother-in-law and new sister-in-law!! just got married today. You have the first look at their wedding pictures. (I think I even beat People Magazine!!) Anyhow, they had a beautiful ceremony and reception. It was very nice.

During the ceremony, I was trying to keep my little angel from disrupting. We were walking around in the back snacking on grapes. I couldn't keep from thinking about the future when she will be the one walking down the isle.

I get teary-eyed when I think about it. I know most of you are thinking "she is only 10-months-old." That is true, but I just want you to know so you can join me and begin praying about your own children (who knows, your little boy may marry my little girl). From the time I brought my bundle of joy home, I began praying for her and her future husband. I pray that they will meet each other and just know that they will be husband and wife. I pray that my little girl will never do the dating thing and have emotional ties to another man (I pray no emotional ties for her husband as well). I also pray that she and her husband will save themselves for each other.

Can you imagine starting a relationship like that - having a pure heart for each other? Who wouldn't want that for their child. My heart longs for her to just be head-over-heals in love with her husband. That is why I am praying for her and her spouse now.

I am praying the same thing for my son. I have been praying that he and his future spouse walk and live in purity all the days of their lives. I have also been praying for the family that she will come from - that they will also walk in purity and have unconditional love for each other. It is great to hear that other parents have the same heart for their child and their furture!

I love the internet! I was thinking today about the wedding, wondering how it was going and what it looked like! I can't believe that you uploaded pics already! They look beautiful!

Oh and don't worry, your little girl will be marrying my youngest little boy! I told you already, we have arranged it all!

Miss you terribly!

I know what you are saying and feeling because I've already been there. Seeing your infant, grown and walking down the isle is one of the hardest things to do. Even though there has to be a time to break the ties, it never gets easy. But somehow we manage to survive it.

Love you and give my princess a kiss for me!!!
