Becca Getting Married

My baby sister got married today! 

When Britney and I were kids we both prayed for another brother or sister and got the great surprise of twin sisters 23 years ago, Rachel and Rebecca. Such a blessing.

Just over 4 years ago, our family welcomed Becca into our home to help with the kids and for her to go to school here in Louisville. It has been a crazy 4 years as we have grown together through many laughs and tears, fights and hugs. Our family has also grown and Becca has been such a great part of this time in our lives. God has used her to bless our family in so many ways, from early morning breakfasts to nights away. It has been such a pleasure to watch Becca grow these last four years into the woman she is today.

Now Becca is a wife, starting her family with Ryan. This too has been a pleasure to watch as they have grown both in the Lord and with each other. It was such a blessing for our entire family to be a part of this happy occasion of Ryan and Becca joining in matrimony. We are so thankful to have Ryan as a part of our family now and look forward to seeing Becca and Ryan grow together in the years to come.

As with all changes, even good ones, there are mixed emotions. As happy as we are for Ryan and Becca, It's hard to say good-bye. Yes, she is still near by, but she has been an intricate part of our daily lives for 4 years. We will all miss having Becca here to talk to, send for errands, play with kids and enjoy regular company. We love her so much!

So here we all go with the next phase of life. It's happy. It's good. It's God's best for all of us. But it's still change and a challenge.

Father, thank You so much for the joy of Ryan and Becca's marriage. Please bless them as they follow You and Your ways. Thank You for a new family member. Thank You for Your goodness, grace and faithfulness. Please build their house in You and the power of Your Spirit.

Congratulations Ryan and Becca! We love you!
