46 days!

It is less than 7 weeks to the wedding now (the days seem to be going by so much faster now). I'm so happy (and I have many reasons to be). God is working out everything just beautifully. The Bridesmaids dresses are at a standstill for approximately 10 more days as we wait for two of my girls to return home from college (Praise the Lord, they both go to colleges that let out early rather than some that don't get out till closer to the end of May!). In the meantime my family is working on repainting several of the rooms in our house and I am working on slowly packing away things that I know I won't need for a couple years.

I had my pre-bridal portrait shoot done today, and it is going to drive me crazy not being able to show the proofs to My Man once they come in. But at least I'll only have to wait a few weeks instead of months. :) (I'm working on looking at the positive side of things. :) )

God is so good. I am so thankful for all the work that He is doing in my life and for how He continues to amaze me with working out little details that I never would have thought of regarding a number of different things. Without God, we are nothing, I am nothing. I can't imagine what it is like to not know God, to not be in a relationship with God. As we get closer to the wedding, I'm still not stressed or worried about anything although I know there are lots of things to do in the next 6 weeks. I'm sure that I will have moments of being stressed out in the weeks to come, but I know that God is in control, everything is in His hands, He knows what will happen, and I know I can rest in Him.

It is now only 53 days to The Wedding. Much is happening. Scott has cleaned the carpets in the apartment (the pic's are still on my camera) and I have painted the living rm, kitchen and bathroom (with help from my lovely Aunt).

A week and a half ago my church surprised me with a shower, and as a result I have started moving little stuff over to the apartment. We were very blessed. We received lots of helpful, useful things. I can't wait to get everything set up.

My Grandparents were parked in our driveway the last 3 weeks and so my Mom and my Grandmother were able to get the bulk of the sewing done for the Bridesmaids dresses and the Flower Girl dress as well as alter my Dress. Now we're waiting on the rest of the trim to come in and for 2 of my girls to return home from College so we can finish all the dresses. They look beautiful.

I had a terrible cold/sinus infection over the past week, but the Lord helped me carry on and Scott and I were able to get lots of promotion done for the book as well as book several more events.

We have less than 8 weeks left to go, and we have much to do, but as we've seen up to this point, God has everything in His hands, and He will work everything out to the last detail, including work, the book, the Wedding, and after the Wedding as well. We know He is in control, and it is a blessing to be able to trust everything to His trusting, faithful hands.
