Well, it was a busy weekend here. The highlight was the wedding of our friends Casey and Andrew. A gorgeous wedding with my favorite color - hot pink.
After the wedding, the flowers were given away. Elizabeth and I chose this bridesmaid bouquet. Isn't it gorgeous!
Sunday, Matthew went to the pool with friends while Elizabeth and I took a "photo shoot" drive. We found a spot down the road from us, a tiny town called Bon Air.
Beyond this little town square are Victorian houses of every color - we'll just have to go back and take pictures because we ran out of time Sunday.
It's been a rough summer for Elizabeth. Her Best Friend Forever - Jacob - is moving to Georgia. We're glad for him, he'll be in the same area as his dad, who he normally only sees twice a year. Now he'll be living 20 minutes from him. Isn't that great?
For him, yes, but not for Elizabeth. She's taking it really hard. Poor child is like her mother, very sensitive, carries her hurts deeply.
So during the two hour drive, we talked about:
1. Fun things to do to keep her busy: swimming, photography.
2. Which month we'll drive nine hours to Georgia to visit Jacob.
3. How much time is reasonable for her to spend on her cell phone with Jacob and other friends.
As an adult, I know she'll get through this.
As a 16-year-old, she's not so sure.
Meanwhile, I'm praying for her, knowing that
God will meet her needs.
