Weddings and Snow Days

Two snow days a month is BIG news in Texas - but two snows days in the same the month of March...bigger news!

Best news of all is the fact that my new grandson is here! The electricity went out at my daughter's house so they all came for an "over night adventure" (according to my 6 year old granddaughter). Bapo (grandpa in my granddaughter's language) is in "hog heaven" to have all of them here. He'd be even happier if the other two girls had come for the night. He likes nothing better than "Girl Camp"...although we now have a new baby boy in the mix...a whole new way of thinking. He now feels he's building power in his camp - son-in-law and now a grandson...but he forgets we still have girl power on our side!

This weekend is very busy for us as a family. My niece is getting married tomorrow and we still have much to do. Decorating the reception hall, rehersal, pictures, arranging flowers, decorating the church, etc. My sister, my daughter and I made more than 300 mints on Monday and we still have the baskets to put together that will hang on the ends of the pews. Still much to do!

I love weddings - especially this time of year. It was 33 years ago this month that my husband and I were married. My, how times flies! So much of life lived in that short time. I've spent more than half my life with him (I'm thinking the best half)...and I can't remember life before him. Lord willing - maybe 33 more!

I pray my niece has many happy and blissful years of marriage also. I pray, too, that they are committed to each other, through the good times as well as the hard times..for the hard times will come. "Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually."1 Chronicles 16:11 I pray they will seek the Lord's face daily, that He would be the "glue" of their marriage. I pray they will rely on the Lord's strength, when they have none, to get them through whatever comes in their marriage! Bless them!
