The Lord blessed my special day with nice warm, windy day (the wind may have not seemed like a blessing, but with the downpour that we had in the morning, it was needed to dry out the grass)!
At 4:00 sharp the guest started to arrive
We did have a short program, and yes, I did have to give a speech...
...in which I was able to thank my amazing family!!! I also shared briefly what Lord has been teaching me about His love...maybe I will save that for a different post:)
She was accompanied by my amazing piano teacher, Mr. Hess and his daughter...
There was also a brief sharing time in which my Pastor shared....
...a couple of my brothers
(Dan and Bethany even recorded a special something for me...and it was played over the speakers!! How special is that?!?)
As well as; Betsy, Alatheia, Mrs. Larsen, Bekah R. and Uncle Doug. It was fun to hear the stories that they recalled...they brought back such sweet memories...mostly at least *smile*! What a blessing they all have been in my life!
Finally...the moment had arrived when I received my high school diploma and a special 'charge' from my Dad.
My Grandpa then prayed for me! I have been so blessed with my Grandparents, and having my Grandpa pray for me, at my graduation, has been something that I have looked forward to for a long time!
My Grandpa's other half! They have been married for 52 years! What a testimony.
