We have had a very busy past six weeks...ministry trips to Mexico and Tennessee, hosting people for a 3 day conference, hosting middle son and 2 of his friends while thy attended a conference, having oldest son and his wife and sons here for the weekend, and attending the wedding of our friends' son. Whew!
I am so glad that my sister had planned this trip to Branson for us and her family. My sister is one of the most generous people I know, and planned this trip and provided our lodging long before our time got so crazy. I am planning on sleeping late every morning we're in Branson, maybe catching a show or two, and just generally doing whatever I please, within reason! I wonder if I can still sleep til 11 or 12 like I could when I was in college?...probably not, but I intend to give it a try.
The wedding this weekend was lovely. Our friends' son and his new bride are a joy to behold. It has been fun seeing the Lord work in their lives. The wedding was lovely, I'm sure, but I was "baby wrangling" for one of the groom's brothers and sister-in-law. This was NOT hazardous duty, but one I really enjoyed. Getting to play with a four month old baby girl was delightful. Having only sons and grandsons, I am always up for "girl" time! Unfortunately, mlle decided to fuss just as the wedding party was entering the chapel. We missed the wedding itself, but heard tell it was beautiful...amazing set of lungs on that tiny little girl. I can't wait to see the video! The bride made her entrance down a spiral staircase, which I think sounds cool.
Everything else is pretty much business as usual. Hopefully I will get the laundry caught up before we leave early Wednesday. Will keep you all posted.
