Dear and ellen b. before we melted away in the heat.
My brother Tim who was a huge help before, during and after the wedding!
Everyone finding a spot in the shade to watch the ceremony.
Our sons, Dan and Josh.
Our son-in-law Andrew, Dan, Josh and Adam. One of Dan’s groomsmen was unable to attend because his wife was about to give birth at anytime and the father being six hours away was not an option!

My next post will be on the ceremony and then one for the reception and dancing.
We are finally getting a wee cool down here in the Pacific Northwest, in the 80’s today instead of the 90’s. What’s happening in your world?
Shine Thou Upon Us Lord
Shine Thou upon us, Lord, true Light of men, today,
And through the written Word Thy very self display,
That so from hearts which burn with gazing on Thy face
Thy little ones may learn the wonders of Thy grace.
Breathe Thou upon us, Lord, Thy Spirit’s living flame,
That so with one accord our lips may tell Thy Name.
Give Thou the hearing ear, fix Thou the wandering thought,
That those we teach may hear the great things Thou hast wrought.
Speak Thou for us, O Lord, in all we say of Thee;
According to Thy Word let all our teaching be,
That so Thy lambs may know their own true Shepherd’s voice,
Where’er He leads them go, and in His love rejoice.
Live Thou within us, Lord, Thy mind and will be ours;
Be Thou beloved, adored, and served with all our powers,
That so our lives may teach Thy children what Thou art,
And plead, by more than speech, for Thee with every heart.
Words: John Ellerton, 1889.
