Our NEWEST Family Member!

Meet our new son-in-law aka SIL :)It was a simple ceremony at the court house...It came on very quickly.
They are young & in love.
Our new SIL leaves for Iraq in September & I think this played a large part in the urgency to commit their love.He was a trooper today!
Less than 24 hours after the I DO's
He not only met my entire side of the family....
But also got broke in by my mom on one of the family traditions-
Here is OUR NEW FAMILY of 10!
The Oldest-my first born had this memorized as a very young child and tonight I pray this over "my baby" and her new husband.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13

Lord we thank you for our new SIL. We pray that you will remain at the center of this marriage ALWAYS and that you will bless their union. We pray that they will turn to you and back to this verse when there are any signs of trouble. Marriage is hard. The only way through it is with YOU at the center. We pray that they live their lives to please you.
