(A fuji mum...one of my favorite flowers!)
Ladies (are there any gentlemen reading???), I will try to update you from time to time but if you have ever planned a wedding in less than 3 months, you understand how crazy things can get!!
So I will just update you on the recent happenings....
Wednesday we met with a florist and we fell in love! She will be doing my bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and cake flowers. My bouquet will be a wildflower mix of thistle, fuji mums, papyrus, wheat, purple aster, lavender, and a few other things...I am so excited about it! It will be tied up with rafia. The moms and grandmoms will have purple aster and wheat tied with rafia and the dads, grandads, groom, and groomsmen will have thistle and wheat tied with a twine rope. It will be perfect for our "barn chic" wedding!
Thursday I got to go pick up my dress and pick out the material for the girls dresses. It is a purple chantung and it is beautiful (and machine washable!). Hopefully we can dress it down just a bit with brown sandals for shoes (=
Tomorrow we are going to look at one (hopefully two) barns for the wedding and to get some meat so we can start cooking and freezing our meat for our barbeque reception! Everything is so perfectly falling into place that I have no doubt whatsoever that I am in the Lord's most perfect will for my life! I am thankful for the times that He shows me that!
Today a man from the mission (where Dusty is the assistant director) laid tile in entry way and bathroom. Next week a man is going to paint the walls in the house and then the landlord is going to have someone come over and lay new carpets! The Lord can work anything out for us and make a 35 year old single wide trailer feel like home sweet home! Little is much when God is in it!
I am having a thankful kind of day! What can you thank Him for today???
