Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
 for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; 

 great is your faithfulness.   Lamentations 3

The Most Beautiful Fall Wedding

This past weekend, John, Bridget & I went to the wedding of our good friend Lydia who married Jonathon.  They'll be moving to Hawaii for a year where Jonathon is stationed so we won't see them much after this. The wedding took place out in a clearing in the woods among the beautiful fall colors and the reception was outdoors until it started to rain.  We all went in the home of the host and had a dance in their wood floored living room.  I got a phone picture of the couple...


And John took one of Bridget & me...
