Luke 24:13-32
This is Jesus heartburn(I have to credit Dallas Willard for this term!)...31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?"

A Wedding Day

One of our AUNTIES got married today! 24 children, 7 staff, and I traveled in the poda pod (OH MY!) all the way to the East End of town to enjoy the day. We started out at 8 and returned home 11 hours later  but every hour spent stuffed in that van with 30 other people was worth it.

I was excited to see if a SL wedding was different from an "American" wedding. It's not that different. A bit more relaxed; you are free to yell and use silly string and confetti throughout the whole ceremony! There were 2 offering during the service, which I was NOT prepared for but thankfully I had a couple thousand in my purse. I think that at least 25 people signed the wedding license and there was a pledge time where people stood and pledged what they would give the couple in the future...they will be receiving LOTS of diapers if they ever are blessed with a little one:) And different groups and families wore matching clothes...you'll see our beautiful style below.

I have a few pictures of the day but none of the bride:(





The children sang a song about marriage for the couple.

Waiting for the reception to begin...HOT and TIRED and HUNGRY is the look on their faces!

The TRS staff sang LOUDLY and ENTHUSIASTICALLY and slightly out of tune.

But they DANCED well and they ENJOYED the party!

The flower girls and the page boy...this is at the end of the day when we arrived back at the center...they could barely stand up straight they were so tired.
