Not only did we get to welcome JP into family, but we also add Chris, JP's son, to my ever expanding list of nieces and nephews. yippie!
Their wedding had everything all great weddings have, friends, family, food, Holy Spirit, wine, dancing, laughter, a photographer, flowers, cake, some special music, a few tears, a pastor and of course the bride and groom.
Except the extra-special beauty of it all was that it was planned in 4 days. Up you read that right. Invites went out to all family and friends via Facebook on Tuesday 1/11. The couple got hitched on 1/15. It. Can. Be. Done. My friends...not without almost killing the maid of honor, but it can be done.
However, that extra special beauty of fast planning and massive amounts of coordination pales in comparison of the OTHER beauty that this day brought. So much took place at that alter where two pairs of hands grasped each other as they placed rings on fingers, spoke eternal vows, and looked deep into each other eyes. The Holy Spirit came and consecrated their marriage. A new path of peace, redemption, joy, happiness, and love was laid before Cynthia and JP as they said I do. This marriage is bringing them into what will be a gorgeous life together as Mr. and Mrs. *ahem* Dr. Cahill.
Also, this summer my other two sisters are coming to live in Nashville! It's been FOREVER since we all lived in the same city, and who knows, this may be our last chance. I can't wait to see what's in store!
