We've got lots to get done.  Bryant will get here late Wed. night and get to join in the madness and confusion.  This will be a very long week to Katie and a very short week to me.

It will all get done, it will be beautiful, and my prayer is the Lord will multiply our energy, out rest, and all our time together and he will be glorified in all that we do!


  1. Wow! What exciting times! Thank you for taking the time to share with all of us! Will pray for strength through it all! BEst wishes to the Bride & Groom!

  2. Oh gosh, Donna! You are soooooo busy. You will need a vacation when this is all over! ;o)
