Well…. we have 1 day left to prepare before our wedding and leaving for our 2 week honeymoon. About the only thing i can say now is AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Everything is going SO well and the pieces are falling into place and people are offering to help, it’s just great, but it’s also just a HUGE stress to plan every last detail of a wedding and prepare for the honeymoon as well.
We’ve been blessed every step of the way though. With plans, travel arrangements, help from family and friends, our travel agent, finances, Bo’s job, our house, or real estate agent… there are so many things. I feel like God just keeps dropping me little blessings every time I turn around to make things easier or relieve some stress.
Last night Bo and I went to our small group bible study but there was no study, they threw us a surprise wedding shower! We sat around and ate cake, opened presents, talked about Bo and I then they all laid their hands on us and prayed for us. It was a sense of community I don’t think I’ve felt much since the race and it was so awesome! We had no idea, it was a complete surprise and our whole entire group came around us, shared wisdom, listened to us and prayed for us, it just doesn’t get any better than that.
So I keep stressing and God keeps giving bits and pieces of strength, encouragement and peace everyday. I THINK we’re ready… I’m sure there’s plenty that I’m forgetting but maybe I’ll just never remember so I won’t know that I forgot it!
I got a job, well 2 actually. They are both my backup plans. I’m in the process for another job that I would really love to get and is my main goal so please keep that in your prayers. I don’t think I’ll get the chance to interview with them before we leave but hopefully SOON after we get back home so I can turn down the other 2 jobs if I do get this one. So that’s great news, I have 2 jobs available one of which I will take if this other job doesn’t come through. Our house is moving along great, more is done everyday and I haven’t even been by for 4-5 days to see it.
My family is well, dad is still doing good, mom is recovering from a kidney infection which was bad. She was VERY sick last week and in bed from about Thursday until Wednesday or so but she’s up and about now, feeling better just a bit weak from being so sick but recovering well.
Bo’s grandma is sick, please keep her in your prayers, we don’t think she will be able to make it to the wedding because of it so that’s a big bummer.
That’s all I can think of right now. I need to go get some work done, laundry done, packing done, financial organization done, preparing done then go to the salon and get my fingers and toes done!
I’m not sure when I will post again, we won’t be home until late July 31st so it may be a few weeks. Thanks for reading this and keeping us in your prayers! I’ll post pictures as SOON as i can!
Bo and Kari
