Bridal Shower

As we look forward to a dear sister-in-love joining our family, we are enjoying the special pre-wedding traditions as Josiah and Abi prepare for marriage. Exactly one week from tomorrow a new household will be established!

We rejoice with them as they've found a sweet little house in a town only 10 miles from Seward. Being so close, we hope we'll get to see them often! [smile] We praise the Lord for His provision for them! We'll be sharing more of their long-term goals as they get settled into their new life together.

And as they prepare for housekeeping, we greatly enjoyed a bridal shower hosted by our church family last week. Here is a quick glimpse of the evening --

Abi's mother shared one of their family's special traditions.

We sang a song Abi specifically requested to be sung at her 16th birthday party -- over 5 years ago. Little did she know how the Lord would so beautifully lead her 'tomorrows' to include Josiah!

Mom shared a devotional -- paralleling the glorious beauty of God's design for marriage to Christ's love for us, His church.

The delicious, dainty foods! A huge THANK YOU to all you kitchen ladies!

Home decor!

A Bosch! Oh, the happy chef!

Our girls enjoying time with Abi's sister, Julia.

"I will bless the Lord at all times,
His praise shall continually be in my mouth."
Psalm 34:1
