A Date, A Date

Yes, you've read it precisely correctly! Our grown-up JJ and his beautiful Honey have set their wedding date. It's sometime this summer and the setting will be amazingly perfect. To honor their privacy, I'm not going to post it here. However, if you've far too curious to simply hear the good news ~ feel free to e-mail or comment a note to me.

This spring will be a flurry of happiness around our home in Sunny. JJ, Honey and Honey's sister will all graduate from the University of Central Intelligence and we'll be going to the ceremony in May. Honey is already a busy bee working on all the details of the big day and it promises to be most delightful!

We're so proud of our kids. (That would be coming from Honey's folks as well as DJ and me.) They're doin' it up right and following biblical standards. They've finished their educational requirements and are looking ahead to a bright future. Primarily ~ they want to spend their lives together and serve God together in every way possible.

But I can't quite pull out the photo albums from the last few years...my throat gets fairly lumpy and my eyes water up like the top of Niagara Falls... And there's no way we're going to rent "Father of the Bride" this year!

That's great! Congratulations to JJ and Honey. What a fun season in their lives this will be, with all the planning and preparations for the wedding. Hang in there, little mama...it's tough when our babies grow up, isn't it?

Oh Grace I felt the same way when my son got married. I have two daughters older than him and though I love them dearly, the feeling wasn't the same. He's 32 now with three children and every bit the wonderful father I prayed he would be. God gives us a special gift when we see our children as adults and parents - it's like He says "you did good." blessings, marlene

God has done a wonderful thing!

Happy Wedding Preps!

I just love you mommy's who walk down these special roads before me. Congratulations, and perhaps it's best there be no renting of Father of the Bride. Unless of course you want fabulous decorating idea. LOL

Fantastic news, Grace. Celebrating with you, sort of. Can you even believe you get to wear the title of mother-in-law? You do know how that usually "spins" don't you?

Oh well, enjoy it anyway.

Congratulations! What wonderful news and how exciting to see your son choose the right one.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I finished the CWG course last year and thought it was very good (but long :)). I'm thinking about doing the next one, but these courses aren't cheap!
