Summer vacation memories: Wedding!

One of the main reasons that we travelled to Texas was for our oldest nephew Peyton's wedding to Haley. While none of our family were in the wedding, we were happy to attend. As it turned out, Rebekah helped take pictures, I helped send bridesmaids and ring bearer down the aisle, and my hubby put together the slide show and ran the sound board. We were delighted to help! My adorable youngest nephew (age 4) was the ring-bearer. He didn't want to wear a coat, so my sister-in-law made him a cape. It was so cute on him-- what a neat idea! She also sewed her son's vest and helped with the broach bouquet. It was a lovely day, with the ceremony at their church and the reception at the Botanical Gardens nearby. It was a lovely setting for the reception. There were a few hiccups, but I kept telling my new niece, "All that matters is that you're married at the end of the day!" And they were-- Congratulations again to Peyton and Haley!
My twin nephew and niece, who didn't want to stand by each other... lol!

It was a beautiful day! What a blessing from God that they found each other! We love you both!

John 2:1-10
On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.  When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

 “Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing,each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.

Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

They did so,  and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
