Last weekend we made a quick trip down to southern Missouri for my
cousin Mary's wedding! It was so fun to be a part of their special day. They had waited on God for
one another for so long, and through a miraculous series of events, they met each other last August...and the rest is now history! Their joy in
one another just sparkles! They had a huge lovely wedding; she likes pink and pearls just like I do. :) I was one
of the punch servers. It was a gorgeous sunny day; in the 40s-50s
compared to the -26 we left in Minnesota. (I am excited for spring when we will get temps like that!)
Me and Grandma with the newlyweds!
We enjoyed getting to see many family members, friends and acquaintances. We cousins
present took our customary group picture with the new bride and groom. (A couple cousins and their families who were at the wedding had to leave before the picture.) We are quite the bunch, and this isn't even nearly all of us!
Our cousin wedding tradition
Best wishes, Ben and Mary! May the Lord richly bless you in your new life together!
