I know you're thinking this is an unusual looking post. Well it was an unusual week. Four days before my son's wedding this past Sunday, my husband had a heart attack. It was the first time in my life I ever used 911. I won't bore you all with lots of details but suffice it to say that we are awed and amazed by how the Lord has worked in our lives especially this week! The doctors said it is a miracle that my husband survived. After many 'ups and downs' in the hospital, Matt was released in time to officiate at our son's wedding! Outdoor wedding, high temps and humidity meant he would share the ceremony with a good friend of our son and daughter-in-law's who is a pastor. So with a 'tag team' effort they both officiated with Matt being given a stool to sit on for his part. I had a lot of plans for this weekend.
I had lists, diagrams, charts, pictures . . . all waiting to be fulfilled. But God had other plans -- HIS plans. What a comfort it was and is to know that none of this took HIM by surprise. Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." So while I had planned to post lots of wedding pictures today, I have none to post because I didn't take a single one! My dear friend (and my son's new mother-in-law!) sent me this picture last night. I can hardly look at it without crying because while I'm sure the wedding pictures are going to be beautiful, THIS is probably the most beautiful to me because I'm sitting and watching our son get married with my husband next to me.
