weddings ROCK

in our recent podcast we stated that divorce sucks, on the other end of the spectrum; weddings ROCK! i came across the video below via @youcanknowgod on twitter (great twitter name btw).

i love the fact that this couple took the time to be so fun, creative and original to begin their wedding. but more importantly to begin their marriage. my prayer for them is that they would continue to put that much time, effort, creativity and fun in their marriage in the days, months, and years to come.

Emmanuel and Jessika Perez

yesterday (saturday 8.16.08) i had the privilege of participating in the beautiful wedding of Jessika Babcock and Emmanuel Perez. (aren’t they a cute couple!)

this was the second wedding that i’ve had a part in conducting – the first was my sister’s last year. hmm, two consecutive years of weddings in august. whose will i be a part of next year?? hint, hint @rhondaberghoff đŸ˜‰

there are five reasons why at the lara house we’ve been waiting for this day with anticipation for several reasons.

first of all it’s trash day and our trash has been full since last friday. last friday i trimmed the hedges around our house. we were going to have company that evening so deb wanted me to clean up all the trimmings. well that filled up our garbage bin and we’ve had to walk over to the church parking lot to throw away our everyday trash bags all week.

secondly, today Phil Wickham is giving away his latest album “Singalong” on his blog. yes, the full album is available for download. all you gotta do is go to his site, fill out your name and email and zip code. then they’ll send you a link to download the album. (warning: this does sign you up for their email newsletter, but you’re getting a free album!)
