Oh happiness

Yesterday was honestly one of the happiest days of my life. My best friend from childhood (!) got married to a wonderful guy; I had the delight of being one of her bridesmaids. As I stood at the front of the church listening to Julia and John exchange vows, I felt for a moment as if this was some crazy wonderful dream: we, two little girls who once played with dolls and danced in ballet recitals and studied AP Biology together, were now married within a year and a half of each other (and in one another's wedding party to boot!). God is so good.

This couple radiates joy and love, for one another and for Christ. Witnessing their union was an honor. I felt as if my face was going to split in half from smiling. :)

At the reception, the wedding party walked in to this song by the David Crowder Band.

"For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised."
-2 Corinthians 5

  1. LOVE the song! And what joyful fun dancing with you and Jared at this happy reception. I have come to see that the joyful moments in life need to be fully embraced and fully enjoyed.
