That is a picture of my sister Andrea and her new husband Matt. This past week was action packed with VBS every night, and then straight on to Knoxville for Matt and Andrea's wedding. It was a gorgeous affair, and I had the honor of singing Malotte's "Lord's Prayer" at the wedding, and Sister Hazel's "This Kind of Love" at the reception for their first dance. The rehearsal dinner was in the skybox at Neyland Stadium!
It was a great weekend and I love ministering in Kingsport, but times like this really make me miss Knoxville A LOT. People here in Kingsport have often asked me "What is it about Knoxville???" Well, honestly, for me, it's home. I supposed wherever you are born and raised will be speical to you no matter what. All my family still live there, my favorite teams still play there, and I have some incredible memories there. Plus, it's close enough that I can get there within 2 hours if I need to.
Anyway, my sister popped up on Facebook last night, which surprised the heck out of me because she is honeymooning in Costa Rica right now. She said she is literally in the jungle and that the only form of communication is the Internet. Funny, I always thought of Costa Rica as being a 3rd world mission field, being just south of Nicaragua. Who knew it was a hot vacation spot?
Also, last night Jonathan Smith, Andrew Gibbons, and I had the privilege of leading a 21 year old lady by the name of Tiffany Lawrence to the Lord. It was wild because she wasn't even the person we were looking for at that house during visitation. I love God ordained appointments!
Well anyway, that's all for now. I'm exhausted. Like, the can't keep my eyes open, head hurts, need to lie down and close my eyes or I'm going to vomit kind of exhausted. So I'm going to go find a quiet corner and hide for a few minutes to try and shake the nausea, just in case you come by the church and can't find me for the next half hour or so.
