A few months ago over facebook my friend Katie and I started reconnecting. She was newly engaged, and I was so excited to hear the story! Our lives had gone in different directions…hers lead to Colorado, and then Texas. And, mine was Asheville, NC and then down to Atlanta. But, it was so special to be able to hear Katie tell me about a man named Blake, that I had also known about all those years ago! I remember sitting on my bed for at least an hour getting the whole story, and realizing what wonderful timing for these two to be reconnected and getting married.
Blake and Katie dated back in college, so it is so sweet to see how the Lord has worked things out in their personal lives, and how that makes their bond now even stronger. One of my favorite parts of the service was an Ebenezer that they had their family and friends build near the altar to represent each significant place they have been over the past few years, and to signify coming together. I know that meant a lot to those attending the service to hear more of their love story! They titled the weekend, “A great day in May!” It sure was!
I love all the expressions in this picture. The crowd was gathering to pray for the couple, and Blake stole one last look at those gathering around them.
