DoRena's wedding was a beautiful celebration of Christian marriage. She was an absolutely lovely bride! It was a gorgeous day.
After the reception we enjoyed the company of Susan and family, RPW and family, Debbie and family from Texas, and some other fellow homeschool friends. It was so wonderful to get to spend time with everyone.
This morning we had the continued company of some of them in church. I have to admit I got a bit teary at one point being there sharing the Lord's Supper with so many good friends and my church family, receiving the chalice from our former pastor and friend, who does not at this point have a church. It was good to see him doing what he has done so faithfully over the years.
As if this wasn't enough good stuff for one weekend, we enjoyed lunch at Mad Anthony's with the Texans. (Yes, I got my seafood unwrap.)
Of course there was a bit of a letdown when we came home. After days full of excitement and friends, normal is going to seem a bit quiet. (We also managed to fit Jonathan's vocal recital and pizza with the grandparents in on Friday night.) The kids and I went for a walk, enjoying the lovely weather and our nearly-completed walking trails.
