My Beautiful Friend's Wedding

Photo courtesy of Simply Jessie Photography
One of my very favorite people in the whole world got married a few weeks ago,
and I am so thankful that I could be there to see it.

Em and I have been friends now for eleven years.
She and I met while living and working together with Cru in Mexico...
the place I had least wanted to spend a year of my life...
the place I came to love deeply...
the place where I met some of the best friends I will ever have...
the place where I met my husband...
and the place where I saw the Lord move so powerfully in the lives of so many wonderful friends.

God's plans are SO much better than our plans.

So, while my husband managed both meetings and our son,
I spent four wonderful days in Chicago with Emily getting ready for her wedding.
Since there wasn't much left to do, we were able to have lots of fun and lots of conversations.
She was such a beautiful, calm, and composed bride, 
and her wedding was unforgettable.

You can see more incredible photos of Em's lovely wedding at Jessie's blog here.
I didn't bring my Jessie kindly let me share this one.

I love you, Em!!
I am so very thankful for you,
and I am so happy for you and Paul.
