Another lost to Glory

Wally's Grandmama, the children's Greatmama, went home to Jesus in late September. Her heart for the Lord always shone, and even when she had lost much of her faculties to dementia, her mind and heart still had a firm grip on her Savior and His word. Such an amazing testimony. 2 Corinthians 4:7-11 "But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh."

"Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence." 2 Corinthians 4:13-14. Greatmama always spoke about her Savior, and we will be with her one day in His presence.

Yay, Verily, Yay!

My brother Christopher got married (said in squealy, happy voice) to a wonderful lovely person! We are so happy to be able to officially call Hannah an Aunt and Sista!

The most gorgeous couple of 2014 along with their nephews and niece.

Looking dapper in the hat Christopher and Hannah gave him.
Do you see why we are thrilled? Hannah is so down to earth and fun.
All spiffed up.
The kids did a great job in their roles. Alden was the ring bearer and Rhianwen was a flower girl. Wally was an usher and was also responsible for helping open the enormous cathedral doors to reveal Hannah in all her splendor. Pretty awesome job. I got to enjoy it from the pew with Corwin.

Writing notes to Christopher and Hannah.
My dad and other brother, Skipper. Skip did a great job being the best man.

Time to party!
Dancing with her little brother. 
Dancing with my handsome boy.
Can you tell we danced a lot? It was way to special to miss out.
A look into the future? I hope so :)
Dancing with Grandpa. Might be the only time, unless he does at her wedding :)
Did anyone say cake?
I just am so looking forward to spending family get togethers with the 2 of them! Thankful for God's providence. I've prayed for this moment for years.
