Wedding Week – Preparing for my son’s wedding

Wedding rings on Bible
Wedding Week As we prepare for my second son’s wedding this weekend, nostalgia, excitement and prayers are abundant.  It has been so exciting to see our son find love and develop the relationship with a wonderful girl.  It has been my prayer since by children were small that they would find partners that love the Lord and want to serve him first.  What a joy to see that happening!
