"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

what God has joined together





















From the first picture you may have thought that this was a shotgun wedding.  Definitely not, father of the bride just has a sense of humor.  I met Alycia a couple of years ago at our home school end of the year picnic after she had graduated and wasn't sure what was next.  We talked about many things and when I mentioned that I was starting a Keepers at Home group for some of our young ladies she asked if I could use some help.  The girls love her and so do I. 

Alycia's Maid of Honor said, when she spoke at the wedding, that her friend is an angel who showed up at just the right moment.  I agree.  So, it's only fitting that an angel should find a saint~

I'm so happy for them both.  God offers true riches to those who are faithful!

Blessings, Debbie

  25. What a beautiful wedding day. I don't think I've ever seen such a lovely wedding dress. Every Blessing to the happy couple. I had to carry this lap top into the office of the Man-of-the-House to show him. He ooed and ahhed, too.
