Dana and I are so pleased to welcome a new member to our family! Our son, Seth, recently married a kindred spirit, Joy Schneider. We are glowing in the aftermath of our trip to Joy’s Oregon home for the wedding. We found a house to rent in the Portland area, so in those precious days before the wedding, our whole family was under one roof – Dana and I, Seth, all of our kiddos and grandsons – what a gift!
We spent our days in praise and worship. We joined the Schneider family Sunday morning at Pastor Jeff Lacine’s Sellwood Baptist Church. We relished the fellowship of family and friends at the Groom’s Dinner – it was amazing how many of their friends made the trip from the Midwest to help us celebrate and we were blessed to have family from home and Michigan with us as well! And, as He did in Cana, the Lord attended the evening garden wedding which was bathed in God’s Word and followed by a happy reception of joy and laughter.
Our prayers for this new family envision a joyous household leaning heavily on the breast of their heavenly Father and spreading the fragrance of Christ to all they encounter.
