The wedding Saturday was fantastic, as we knew it would be. We are proud of Josh and Heidi and anticipate hearing great things about what God is doing in their future. Our family was honored upon arriving at the reception to find that we were sitting at the family table with our dear friends Pastors Keith and Joy (Josh's parents). Our mutual friends Pastors Peter and Tammy Young were included there too. Peter and Tammy also sang "The Prayer" by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli. I've included some photos here from the day.
Sunday we were anticipating the crowd being extremely down at Celebration and although we did have at least ten families gone, we had a pretty good attendance for a holiday weekend. We also had some great visitors with us who said they are definitely coming back -- and best of all, God changed lives and there were salvations in the house...which never, never, never gets old!!!
We rounded the day off with a Celebration Fourth of July party with a cookout, swimming, fishing and fireworks. For me that usually means sitting around drinking iced tea and visiting with church folk and talking about how great Bonnie Stewart's potato salad is. (Yeah Bonnie, you made the blog again...lol)
I had a great time today but I'm ready for a few hours rest on Monday (office closed for July 4th weekend) and head into another really busy week. Not just busyness, but going after God and I'm fasting, praying and believing for lives changed and miracles happening.
