post six: pre-renewal

Getting Ready
Your smile captured me
I don't know how it happened
But it happens still
You had me from "Hello"

You won me
It was over from the start
You completely stole my heart
Girl, you had me from "Hello"
-- kenny chesney you had me from hello

next up: the vows!


post five: 25 years

"So Jacob served seven years for Rachel
and they seemed to him but a few days
because of the love he had for her."
Genesis 29:20
Make that 25 years, not seven.God is so good. How many people get to stand with their children and best friends, celebrating God's faithfulness over 25 years of marriage? Not many, but I sure am encouraged seeing them."You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to":"You're still the one I want for life":
"You're still that I love
The only one I dream of":"You're still the one I kiss goodnight"
You're Still the One - Shania Twain

He assured me that he was strong enough to do it himself.So, the cake became kind of a big deal.Guests starting swarming, and ooh-ing and aah-ing. Here it is!I want cake!!!
"Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you...""Happy birthday dear McKayla, happy birthday to you!"
I love this picture so much.
