What a world-wind event to say the least! From eating at a restaurant on Friday night and being asked by a waitress to switch tables mid-through our dinner then running 9 miles in HEAT, let's just say that wasn't my finest run because of the heat. The onto the wedding, a beautiful venue, which I will have plenty of photos for your viewing pleasure. The bride was very beautiful, the weather was perfect, and the food was delicious. I will leave you with this, you may have heard that character is what you are when no one is around or watching, however I think true character is best displayed when faced with an extremely stressful situation when there are over 100 people watching.
The Bible talks about character too in Romans 5:3-5.
3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
My friend, the bride yesterday, has such class and character. Out of respect, I won't display the details, however I strongly ask you not to think negatively, they are married, they are a wonderful couple, his health took a serious turn so please send prayers for a quick recovery.
I will talk tomorrow about the Color Run, but I wanted to leave you with some photos of the beautiful venue. There was a bison, longhorn cattle and two beautiful horses on the property.
