If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

She Said Yes to the Dress!

 I had a great 3 days with Kelli in Florida.  I flew in on Friday afternoon.  We went to her house and relaxed there for the evening.  We watched the new Mulan (which I liked better than she did) and had Chinese Take-Out for dinner (rather appropriate, don't you think?)  

Friday morning we got up early and got ready and went and picked up her almost mother-in-law and headed to her appointment for a wedding dress.  This was such a cute little boutique and they had so many beautiful dresses.  It was so fun watching her trying them on and getting everyone's opinion.  1 bridesmaid, 2 friends and the mother-in-law and me were the only ones in the shop.  We laughed and talked and critiqued each dress.  The attendant did a wonderful job of listening and bringing out the most beautiful dresses.  

It was about the 7th dress or so when she walked out of the dressing room and said, "This is it.  This is the one!!"  And she was right.  It was absolutely beautiful and just what she had been describing.  Nothing quite like seeing your daughter so happy and looking like a princess!  Of course, I won't show her in her dress, but I'll show a couple of pictures that were taken at the appointment.


This is the cute little viewing room.

When we left we all went to lunch and this was our view.  St. Pete, FL




What a wonderful time we had and I'm so thankful I got to fly in for 3 days and be there for this!  Next stop, wedding in March.
