The Wedding Planners...

My parents and I spent the better part of yesterday making lists of things that still had to be done for the wedding. Stuff like:
Catering details
Florist
Cake
Bridesmaids outfits - alterations? Hair? Nails?
Rehearsal dinner
Etc. Etc. Etc.
It was amazing how quickly three hours can go when you work on a project like that. Then we gave my sister that is getting married the lists so she knows what needs to be done (my sister really appreciated it because she has been very busy with her new job.)

My mom said that we should set the lists in front of the Lord and pray for all the details to be taken care of. I said, "mom! that is an excellent idea!" The Lord has already shown that He is involved in the details of this wedding. All of us bridesmaids are a size 18. The dress lady said she had never heard of such a thing. Then my sister found the flower girl and jr bridesmaid dresses at a garage sale for $3 dollars each.

My sister told me that my future brother in law puts little notes in her lunch with the countdown on how many days left before the wedding. That is so sweet it makes me cry. As of today: 40 days till the wedding.

Our youngest daughter was recently married. Early in the planning stages I was "concerned" about the details and logistics. Clearly, one day, the Lord spoke to me and said, "Are you going to let me plan this wedding?" I told him, of course, Lord...yes! And it went without a hitch and there was money to pay for it and the bride and groom said it was a perfect wedding exactly what they wanted. The credit is all the Lords and I admit that. Even here we can trust him. I could say more but won't. :) I wish you well with your sister's wedding.
