What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Christina's Wedding and My Weekend Away


 Well, as you can see~ the wedding was beautiful.    The groom was dashing and the best part was the huge grin he had on his face the ENTIRE TIME.  (I watched him most of all, I think.)  The bride was beautiful. The children were so precious I wanted to steal them.  The bridesmaids, the soloist.  Everything.   I loved the color combination~ it reminded me of the ocean.  The dresses  were of the same color and wispyness of the sea, the white and silver necklaces shined like the pearls of the deep and the sand under your toes and the flowers were the exact color of a summer sunset. Gorgeous.

And did you notice the burlap and blue bottles as centerpieces?  Remind you of anything?  I couldn't believe how positively trendy I had been, all on my own!  I assure you, it was a fluke.

It was a beautiful weekend, visiting with family- and even my parents.  Since they have plenty of young children still and many with 'issues' and I have almost a handful myself- quality time is at a minimum even when we do visit with one another.   It was a sweet, sweet time.  Not having the children all about was very odd at times- especially when I had no plates to serve up at dinner except my own and on Sunday, when I had no knees to squeeze or stinkeyes to glare during the sermon.

It was a relaxing and beautiful weekend- but I am glad to be back among the loud, messy and chaotic of my own Home Sweet Home.
