i love weddings. mainly because i love marriage. i love that God so graciously appointed us to have a partner, a helper and that we'd be able to see Jesus more clearly and look more like him ourselves through the refining tool of marriage. getting to be present for randi and clinton's wedding ceremony was such a blessing to ben and i. we love both of these friends dearly.
randi and i have been in biblestudy together for years and years now and i'm always blown away [and oh so thankful] for her sincerity and for the deep way that her mind works. i am always spurred on to be more real and go deeper when i hear about her walk with Christ. that is a pretty amazing quality to have. clinton and i lead together on a younglife team many moons ago at a private school in town, sayre. it was a hard place to be in a lot of ways but i wouldn't trade one minute of it. we were able to learn so much about how the Lord operates, that people's hearts are His mighty work and that we are just blessed to be a part of it. i learned so much from my team during those years. clinton is so steady and faithful - not easily shaken. their marriage is going to be such a voice that speaks to God's goodness and grace.
sorry my pictures are kind of terrible. i was super zooming to get these.
loved the flowers & lemons as our centerpieces. i wanted to take these flowers home but a granny beat me to it. [just kidding - kind of]. there were little notecards on the table for us to write to randi and clinton since they are going to be living across the country. note of encouragement, or love, or jokes - to make them feel close to everyone.
me, benny and the bump all thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
i got just a few pics of friends...
and one of a happy salad. bahahaha
love you mr. and mrs. owens. we are so excited for you both to start your lives together!
