Not being a seamstress myself, I was quickly overwhelmed this evening as Olivia was having her dress pinned to be altered……….
Overwhelmed to think that someone actually alters over 500 dresses a year!
Overwhelmed to think that Josie’s hands can maneuver this machine and transform evening gowns and wedding dresses into girl’s dream dresses…
But more than all of that I was simply overwhelmed as I watched Olivia and Josie work together to get Olivia’s dress fitting “just right.”
Olivia’s favorite moment of the night was when Josie discovered a pocket in her dress! 🙂
After the dress altering was finished, I joined Topsy, Wilma and Donna to make the mints for the wedding reception……
Overwhelmed at the reality that the wedding is only two weeks from this coming Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!
When I think of all the things we have been working on over the past few months- the phone calls and emails that have been made- ……all to make sure that Erich and Mallory’s day is perfectly beautiful, I can’t help but think about the wedding we will be a part of when Jesus comes to claim His Bride, the church!!!!!!!!
I hope I am spending more time, emotionally and physically, preparing for that wedding day than this one!!
I want to be ready on that day….. not overwhelmed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has
and his bride has made herself
Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)
Then the angel said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”
Praying you are preparing for that wedding day too!
We love you! (And Hugo!)
