These photos are in no particular order, just showing the happy occasion when two people became man and wife on July 12, 2008.  Ken and I are able to claim we are bona fide matchmakers now, though it was a “long row to hoe” as the groom admitted after eight years of courtship. 8)

Witnessed Friends’ Wedding Yesterday

Sorry for dropping off the map with my blog entries the last several days. Our friends Jeannie and Ken got married yesterday in Texas and fortunately Ken and I flew to Houston to witness this fact. Their relationship has been eight years in the making.  We feel responsible for introducing these two people who are about our same ages.  Now we feel even MORE responsible that their marriage be a healthy one with fruitful ministry.  My husband Ken was the best man and I helped lead the congregation in singing some hymns. Jeannie’s younger sister was the matron of honor. There were about 50 people who were invited, mostly family and friends.  We were Ken’s friends and basically the only people he knew besides Jeannie’s immediate family, the rest were Jeannie’s colleagues, friends and other relatives.

Needless to say, we’ve been a bit busy travelling and I would call that WORK!  Going through security checks and x-ray machines after packing judiciously, boarding planes and disembarking, getting rental cars and dropping them off on time to board yet another plane.  We nearly missed our connection last night to Phoenix from Houston but now we are visiting friends and family in Arizona and enjoying it though the weather is hot like in Kazakhstan.  Supposedly this is monsoon season so we have had some rain. 

Which reminds me, I need to get back to tending my gardens in NW MN, they have become overgrown with much weeds.  Thistles can stand erect at nearly a yard tall.  Quack grass is the bane of my gardening existence.  The day before we left for TX, I was out frenetically pulling weeds for nearly 6-7 hours. 

Despite weeds in my garden, life is good!  Our friends are married off, we wish them all of God’s best!!!
