My sweet friend Crissy pulled off an amazing redesign for my blog and I am so diggin' it! Thank you Crissy for making my page so much more fun. And thanks for being patient with a girl who can't make decisions. You are a jewel!
Byron and Megan are officially husband and wife! The wedding was absolutely beautiful and thanks to many of you praying fiercely on our behalf, it went off without a hitch. Once the father of the bride gave her away, Byron, Sr. and I joined Meg's mom and dad at the altar for a family prayer that was so moving. We huddled around our sweet couple and Meg's dad led us in a prayer for the two of them. I can't think of a better way for Byron and Meg to have started their new life together.
The reception was one big celebration, but the most memorable moment was when our Brennan, younger brother/best man, toasted the bride and groom with the sweetest speech. Byron & Brennan cried, Meg cried, and the rest of us didn't stand a chance! And I was a very proud mom watching this amazing exchange between our boys & now, our girl. We are incredibly blessed!
The wedding countdown has begun! And there has not been one dull moment! I am SO grateful for my friends who have encouraged me, blessed me, prayed for me and saved my life. Well...maybe not my life, but definitely my reputation! The groom-to-be has thrown me a few curve balls this week and the ONLY reason that I am bailing him out at this point...honestly...is so that I don't look bad! Really, if this wasn't a public affair, he'd be toast!
Oh, I'm going to miss that boy. I'm going to miss hearing him sing and play his guitar in his room when he thinks no one is listening. Many times have I stood outside his door and soaked it all in.
I'm going to miss coming home and finding a mound of clothes neatly folded on my bed because the laundry room was overflowing!
I'm going to miss turning on the surround sound, popping in the latest worship DVD and critiquing it together.
...and the list could go on and on.
This is going to be an amazing weekend and hopefully I'll have pictures to share with you soon. I can't wait! The next time we talk, I will be a mother-in-law!!!!
