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.

I feel amazed that you are mine. I cannot wait to put our first pieces of furniture in the appartment this week... it's going to be a nice little home... for just the two of us! (-:
