Wedding Eve

Tonight was an unforgettable time of delight as nearly 70 friends and family gathered together to rehearse the wedding ceremony and share dinner together.  My heart is overflowing with gratefulness for the tremendous love that was evident tonight, the testimonies that were shared, the beauty of holiness, and the goodness of the Lord.

Tomorrow, my entire life changes as I enter into marriage with the most amazing man I am privileged to know!

Rejoicing, praying, and heading to bed...!

There Shall Be Showers of Blessing - Part Four!

At the end of April, I was blessed to have a fourth and final bridal shower as numerous dear friends gathered around to celebrate my upcoming marriage and shower me with gifts for my new home.  
It was a lovely occasion in every way!

Mom and Mrs. Hebert enjoyed sweet fellowship.

Listening to my future sister-in-law, Katelyn, tell an animated story.

Mrs. Cooke shared Godly wisdom which was followed by a time of prayer.

My grandmother shared some wisdom as well.

Food, glorious food!

 Lunch was delicious!

 Doesn't the lunch room look delightful?

I loved the daisy theme!

Gift opening time!

I am quite sure that no bride has been so blessed as me!

Through all these showers, I have felt the love and support of hundreds of people in a way like never before.  Thank you, to each and every one of you, who have rejoiced with us in this joyous season of courtship and engagement and who have given so abundantly to help us get started in life together well cared for.  Nathan and I are truly grateful!

Nathan Cooks!

 Due to the increased busyness in our lives lately and the increased amount of people living in our home with the Days in town, everyone takes a turn making dinner each week.

 Recently, I caught Nathan on camera busy at work making chile.  Don't you love where he puts his recipe card? :)

Yep...he's pretty handy to have around!

There Shall Be Showers of Blessing - Part Three!

 Recently, I had the immense privilege of being the guest of honor at a bridal shower given by my former co-workers and fellow volunteers from Care Net Pregnancy Center.  

 It was a beautiful affair, hosted by a newlywed herself!

 From the flowers to the food to the sweet, sweet fellowship and outpouring of generosity, every detail was such a blessing!


 Special prayer time in the kitchen.


 Catching up with old friends whom you haven't seen in a long time is so fun!

 One of my gifts from the day was a scrapbook filled with Godly wisdom about marriage that each lady contributed.

 The Williams Family - Dear Friends!

Wonderful women who have greatly enriched my life.

 And the presents begin!

 (Not really sure what I was explaining in this picture...)

 More lovely ladies.

 More fun facial expressions caught on camera!

 A most personal gift that I treasure!

Sweet memories. 

Thank you, Care Net friends, for hosting such a delightful time of blessing!
