Halfway to The Finish Line

We are almost there. My house looks like a disaster area. I have boxes of lights, chafing dishes and vases and bundles of birch and in my office a Korg is on the couch with a amp in the corner.( A Korg is a very nice electric piano) I expect tomorrow for it to look even crazier. My son will becoming with his machine he made that bends metal to make some arches for me and to help his Dad build the dance floor. The other boys will be digging post holes for lights and putting in all of the shepherd's hooks.

I wanted to tell you though about my little miracle. I have been watching the extended weather forecast. The weather always said that on May 18th it would be 103 or it would be raining. With an outside wedding, both seemed like a huge obstacle in my mind. I decided that instead of wringing my hands and worrying, I would just pray about it. Last week when we had 100+ temps I really started praying. Today this is the weather report for the next few days.

    Tuesday Sunny, with a high near 94. East southeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west in the morning.
     
Isn't that a huge miracle? Well, it is for me. Perfect temperature for a perfect day.

I continue to be overwhelmed at the kindness and all of the hard work so many people are doing on our behalf. Above my kitchen sink I have a sign that says, " It's a Wonderful Life." I have another one that says,
" Fairy Tales Do Come True." I have to say that even though I am more tired than I have ever been. Even the tops of my toes ache, who knew? But deep inside is such joy and as God continues to go before us, I am just amazed at every turn.

Well, off to clean my  chicken house. I decided today they had to have some attention their nest boxes are completely empty of hay and the spiders think they have a new home.

Have a lovely day, I feel like a bad blogger because I am so behind on your posts. I will be back soon like normal. What ever that is, Thank you for your comments they make me laugh and smile and pick me up.

Thank you,
~Kim~

  1. I'm glad you updated! I'll bet the madness is rising, but at least there's lots of hands around to help, right? Maybe tomorrow night I can sit and help you build lanterns or something. :-)

  4. Woohoo! It'll be over soon! Isn't the weather amazing? We checked it the other night and saw that about being low 80s and were so, so happy. Remember our wedding, how it was so stinking hot on Friday, and it rained that night? And then it was just beautiful on Saturday. Couldn't have been more perfect.

    I can't wait to come help out on Thursday! I'm so excited to finally get my hands into all this stuff. :)

  16. Great news about the weather. I know you're use to the heat in your part of the country, but 102 would have been so hot! Good luck with all the last minute details, they will all come together nicely.
