4 Days and Counting
Hey friends,
We are just four days away from the wedding and I wanted to share a few pictures of the lovely church where the wedding will be held.
The building is called Oliver's Carriage House. A church bought the property in the 1970's and they have taken great care to save the history and integrity of this carriage house.

I wish you could see the inside of the building.

They have saved a few horse stalls on the main floor and are using them as office storage.
The sanctuary is on the second floor of the building with wooden floors and ceiling as well as beautiful rock walls.

This picture is from their web-site and they have it set up very much like our wedding will be.
Our reception will be held on the grounds inside beautiful white tents.



I wish each of you could see the cross over the fireplace mantel.
It's made from items found on the grounds when the parking lot was installed.
There are door hinges, horse shoes, bridles, nails, nuts and bolts along with various other metal objects.
Each item has been welded to metal bars and all the items are old and rusted.
I call it the cross with junk. Just like our lives...
We all have junk in our lives and we all need to bring that junk to the cross.
What junk do you need to lay down at the cross?

What an appropriate picture of what the cross stands for-- and what Jesus accomplished in His sacrificial death. "He made you alive together with Him, hyaving forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt...which was hostile to us.. having nailed it to the cross." (Colossians 2:13, 14)

Have a wonderful time at the wedding. We are forecast to have beautiful, warm, sunny days and cool nights all week here in Maryland-- and Saturday is supposed to be partly cloudy and 78. Sounds like perfect weather for a reception under a tent!

Zoe, the pictures are beautiful. I love the symbolism of the cross.

Under the shadow of His cross,
Joy

It is Friday Zoe,

I just wanted to let you know I was praying for you. This is what you have been waiting for. WOW! It has finally arrived.

Father, I pray that today and tomorrow you will surround all the people that will join this family as they gather together. Allow your spirit to be felt as these young people join in your Holy name. Touch Zoe and bless her body physically so that no part of her is sick in any way. Give all of them peace and grace to carry through this weekend.
Let them soak in every moment. Amen.

P.S. Please let Zoe and Josh have the best mother son dance ever. I know she will be styling in some serious dancing shoes. Amen again.
Love you Zoe,
Diane

Thinking about you tonight and how hard it must be to sleep! Have fun tomorrow! Thanks for sharing about the "cross of junk."

You've been on my mind all day. Trust you're enjoying every moment and that you're making wonderful memories to cherish for a lifetime.
Hugs,

It is Sunday evening, and I have thought throughout the day about how tired you must be. I have no doubt that everything went off with out a hitch. The beautiful bride and groom are on their way to making a new life together.

Now there comes a time where you are going to think to yourself, why can't I find things to do? Or be upset that the wedding is over. It is going to be perfectly natural to have "wedding hangover".
You have been so busy planning and preparing for this one day and then it is here and gone.

I have seen it so many times as the caterer. It is a great time to allow your friends to pamper you. Treat yourself to some special gal pal time. Extra bubble baths, by candlelight or just a nice evening at home with your man.

Praying for you and waiting to hear the details.
Did you dance sister or did you shake-shake-shake, shake-shake-shake-shake you booty?
Love ya,
Diane
