Yikes. So I haven't posted in over a week. As usual, you can infer that things are busy! Here's the Catch Up:
Joey and I went to Louisiana to hang out with his family and celebrate the upcoming wedding of his brother Josh. Josh and Haley had a super fun party last Saturday. We left Houston and it was 70 degrees on Friday. By Saturday evening it was in the 40s and the party was outdoors. And of course, ever unprepared, we had on 65 degree clothes. Jenny and Joey Popsicles.
And this past weekend, Joey and I were so blessed to witness our friends Brent and Lacey's wedding. For those of you that know these two, you know that this has been a journey as Lacey lost her Mom a little over a month ago. Their wedding was such a testament to the faithfulness of God. Anytime you get to witness people in the midst of one of the toughest seasons of their lives say that they know that it's for God's glory and they are going to have faith in his perfect plan despite not understanding it - anytime you get to see this - take a picture of it, mentally speaking. What an encouragement. Lacey looked absolutely beautiful!
There is also one more thing during my blog absence that I wanted to comment on. Did you watch The Bachelor? What in the world is going on? I was in and out for the last three episodes so I will admit that I have not been faithfully following the season, but geez, has reality TV hit an all-time low or what? As if dating and becoming emotionally attached to multiple people is not bad enough, we put it on TV and glamorize it. It's pretty telling about the throw-away view our society has on relationships. And by the way, this is supposed to be the fairy-tale-dream-come-true kind of show. This is a picture of The World trying to do relationships. And it is a cheap substitute for the sanctifying relationship that God has intended for us.
Thank you for letting me rant on the last one and I'll try to keep up!
