Time...where are you?

My's been a while since I've rattled the keys and given you all an update.
And I've missed it - I've missed you.  So much.

Time.  Where has it gone?  I used to have it.  Between planning a wedding, living my current life, and preparing for my future one, I seem to have misplaced all my free time, as well as my spare moments.  You wouldn't believe how much time and energy go into planning a wedding...unless, of course, you've planned one yourself.  In that case, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

But seriously.  This is insanity!  Which is exactly why the little bride-to-be ends up in tears or fits so often - everything else is crazy, so jump on in, the water is fine!  Actually, everything is going along so smoothly.  The venue is ready, the dress is (just about) finished, the dance floor is rented, the marriage license obtained, and everything has been planned out down to the smallest detail.  I praise the Lord for that and give Him all of the glory.

This is the picture we used for our invitations.
We are less than 2 weeks away from the wedding, people!  Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!  Last time I was on here, I believe we were still about 60 or so days out.  Yikes!  Time does fly.  These past few months have been both incredibly amazing and challenging.  But mostly amazing.  Hank and I have been going through premarital counseling with our pastor.  Which has been so, so good.  You know what my greatest discovery has been during this time?  Praying with Hank and for him.  Girls, there is nothing like it.  It draws you closer to the Lord while drawing the two of you closer together on a whole new level.  And it helps to keep the focus on God.  It is so, so easy to let that focus slip.  But how can you build a relationship when there is no foundation?  "Keep our eyes on You", has become our constant prayer.  I thank the Lord for everything that He has been teaching us during this season.

Goodness, that's all the time I can spare right now.  But here are some engagement pictures to keep you all busy until after the wedding! *grin*  So enjoy, and I'll see you all soon...ish.  Sometime towards the end of October, I'm thinking. *smile*

We used this one for the back of our invitation, with the details in the middle.  It turned out so lovely.
