As a continuation of this series of posts I will introduce two of Chad's groomsmen and one of my lovely ladies to get us up to date:
David is the 'attractive pre-teen camp counselor' mentioned in the previous post as well as Kayla's husband. Although David has only known Chad a short while his friendship has become invaluable to him. It wasn't long after Chad met David that he told me if we were to get married one day he would want David to be a groomsmen. This, of course, warmed my heart immediately as David has been like a brother to me throughout much of my life. David is steady and strong and full of great wisdom. Did I also mention that David loves to talk?
Chad and Jeremy go way back and their parents homes are right around the corner from each other. Jeremy has been a good friend to Chad and always offered a word of encouragement and his friendship without any expectations. Jeremy is patient and kind and we are blessed that he will be a part of our wedding party in April!
What can I say? Jamielynn has been one of my dearest and best friends throughout much of my life. When I was in a time of my life where things were uncertain and I felt unloved, Jamie loved me just as she does now. She took me in under her wing and became more that Erick's girlfirend--she became my sister long before a ring went on her finger or a wedding was held. Jamielynn taught me so much about God's love and how to love people at such a young age. I don't think I could possibly describe the impact she has had on my life in this short blog post. Jamielynn brought out in me a deep love I had for music and never discouraged me even when I couldn't sing on pitch to save my life. We attended countless concerts includinmg trips to the The Door and celebrate freedom. We share many memories and have many memories to make. It was such a pleasure and honor to be a bridesmaid in Jamielynn's wedding 10 years ago and I am thrilled that she, too, will be standing with me on that day!
In just writing these posts the last two days I've realized that I have been more blessed than I deserve. God is so good to provide us with friends and family who display His love to us so eloquently!
