Today's the day!

Today is a special day for us. We add a new member to our family officially today. He is has already found his way into our hearts - he loves our daughter. It has been such a joy to watch a courtship where God is at the center. Our home has been filled with laughter and kisses.

Most of the work of the preparation for the wedding is done - hopefully all the last minute details have been accounted for and covered. God has kept sending me workers for the final step of getting the site ready for the wedding - getting the tables and chairs arranged and decorated, picking up the food and flowers, the last minute shopping.

Debra's Pepperdine friend, Mary, has been so helpful. She has worked ever so hard with the last minute preparations. She even stayed up last night to keep me awake as I finished the alterations on one of the bridesmaid's dresses.

While I have definitely gotten tired over the last couple of days - it has been a happy, excited kind of tired. God has brought two very special people together to create a new family.

My only prayer request for today - let all of the wedding party get sufficient rest and relaxation today - we are all tired.
