A Wedding and a Prison

My son’s wedding is over (Was that a dream? No, just a beautiful answer to lifelong prayers. Photos coming soon! But---for now, these photos we shot between events)

 

Four of the groomsmen were my sons!

How many times have Noah and I danced together? This is the first time. How long did we practice before rockin' out to Guns 'N Roses' "Sweet Child of Mine?" 15 seconds! But it was a great success!! (Meaning, I didn't crush his foot or fall!)

These two weeks in California have been life changing. Yes, the wedding! My own family gathered together with much rejoicing--and two God-serving families now joined together with SO much joy! And if this isn't enough-----the prison visit. Some of you wrote to say you’ll be stepping out in new ministries this year. That makes me very very glad. There is no more amazing adventure than the risky beautiful walk of faith! 

 

And now I've awakened to discover it's nearly Christmas! In my next post, I'm doing two exciting things: I'm giving away 10 Crossing the Waters books to those who need them. (It's SO much fun to do this!) And---I'm posting a remarkable interview with the inimitable Luci Shaw filmed this fall during the Harvester Island Wilderness Workshop. It's a don't-miss post. Coming next!
