A Horse of a Different Color
(Hint: Play video song above for full effect!)
Yesterday was a special, special day. It was a hot day - a really hot day - but that didn't diminish the joy and love in the air.
A very special friend of mine got married to a wonderful guy yesterday. The ceremony and reception were both in New Haven CT, and the reception was at Carousel Point Park, right on the water and with a genuine antique carousel from 1916 that was available just to the guests of the reception.
Anyway, Lisa is remarkable to me because she has an unwavering Faith that carries her all over the world, helping others see how great a life with God can be. She met Peter during her travels, and he shares the same drive and ambition to serve God by helping others.
Isn't that cool?
Before Lisa left for her first overseas assignment approximately 6 years ago, she insisted on seeing me before she left, and she only had about 10 minutes of time to give. We met in NYC, and she stuck something in my bag and said, "God told me you needed this." We said goodbye, and she left.
What was it, you ask? It was a CD - of a musician called Jeremy Camp. That's his song, above. That CD changed my life. It was guidance I needed at the time without being stifling, almost like it was offered to me and it was my choice to take the advice given, or not. Matt is now a fan of Jeremy Camp also, and one of his songs ("Trust in You," above) is featured on our wedding video.
Matt and I were delighted to be a part of their wedding day...and here are some photos and video!
Yeah, I couldn't help myself.
Neither could Matt. (video)
Look at the love between these two. It's just so tangible.
A random pirate ship...ahoy matey!
Look who made it on the carousel! Our girl is famous!
It's no Leaning Tower of Pisa, but we made the most of it...
The elated Bride and Groom!
And, I have to show you just how cool these two are. Check out their first dance!
