Here Comes The Bride?

Today has been a busy one. My sister is in town for her daughter's wedding and things have been a little hectic. Along with having to pick up a few things for the lovely rehearsal dinner we had planned, I also had some personal commitments to take care of. Time, time, there ever enough of it?

I barely made it to the church on time, but when I got there, I was wondering where everyone else was. There were a few cars in the parking lot, but not as many as there should be. Of course my mind went into overdrive. What if the something had gone wrong? You know it's possible with all the stress of the planning. When I got inside and saw the face of the bride to be I knew something was wrong. Tears. There were tears. No groom. I did not see the groom.

I was slow to speak, but finally ask if she was okay. She could only nod her head. I went back into the kitchen to help finish preparing for the meal and left her alone to speak with her mother. It wasn't long before the groom to be entered in and all was well again. Stressful, I tell you. Stressful. So as long as all goes well, (I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask for prayer for them) I will be attending another wedding tomorrow.

Rocking Blogger?

This was a surprise to me!! LOL..... My sweet friend Angel Mama over at Pearls of Wisdom blessed me with this a few days ago and I am just getting around to passing on the love. She is definitely a deserving candidate. We have only recently *met* but found we have so much in common such as our love for God, our family, our homes, and of course *with a big smile* our love of tea and it's customs. Thank-you, Angel Mama. Without further ado and in no particular order, I now will pass the "torch" to few others. Most of my favorites have received it already such as Anita , Denise, and Sharon . Congratulations, ladies.

I'll start with my other friend, Sharon from Days Of Gladness. I enjoy reading of her busy schedule juggling church ministry and family. She is one busy woman and enjoys doing the work of the Lord.

Joy in F.R.O.G. or Marilee is new to Blogger, but not the blogging world. She is and old friend from FaithPrints who has always been a great encourager. She is a Born Again Christian in every sense of the word and excited about it! Praise God!

Beth at Life With Two Little Vikings is another FaithPrints alumni. She if a faithful blogger and I admire the fact that she can post more than once a day AND about different topics! LOL

Lisa at Sound Proof Room and Sara from Toward The Mark are also from our FaithPrints days. Two more deserving ladies and I treasure their friendship. Lisa is my west coast buddy that shares pieces of her life and her love for the Lord and she takes care of her son. And Sara blesses me with her post that make me think all while taking care of her little Jack and new baby Harry.

And then there is Iris from Sting My Heart. I think she already received this award as well. She is also a wonderful encourager and I enjoy reading her devotions and such. She is a blessing to the blogging community.

If you haven't already, go on over and visit each of these wonderful ladies. They will bless you as they share their hearts and lives.

Thanks again, Angel Mama.

Praise Him

I just wanted to pop in and thank everyone for their prayers. Praise God! He is in the midst of things and I know He is working all things for my good. I am excited about what He is going to do! (and about what He has already done!) There is nothing impossible with Him. How amazing to serve a living God!! It's late and I have had a long two days, so I am off to bed. Nitey nite!
