"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

the pre-party party!

Before you scroll down to view the party pics, I really need to plead for a quick prayer from you. Pleeeease?

Kai awoke at 5:30 a.m. today with 102 fever! It's now down to 99 with a little help from Motrin and a lot of help of The Great Physician. Please pray that the fever does not return and it is just a fluke thing. Maybe too much excitement being the ring bearer?

Thank you, my dear friends! I know you've got our backs!

It's gettin' close! We're down to 6 hours and counting before the "I dos" are said! Woohoo!

You have a beautiful family. The kids look like they are having a fabulous time in all the pictures. If Kai is feeling bad, you sure can't tell it!

Have a great day today!

Fabulous pictures, Ohilda.

Wishing Tito and his bride a life full of love and God's Blessings. I hope everyone has a great day today.

My love to you all,
Lily

*Funny how some things stick with you. As soon as I saw the church steeple I remembered it. It's been years since I was last there, I think the last time was for Tito's Communion.*

Ohilda, your family is beautiful. I just know you are going to be a wonderful mother in love to your son's new bride. I am sure their is so much more we can learn from you regarding this new adventure.

Praying for Kai, I hate to be bearer of bad news so I will add good news to it, but I don't think nerves can make 102 fever, so the good news is all your bloggy friends can pray for immediate healing of your sweet little one!!!

And by the way, I will privately email after the wedding but the Lord answered a prayer of mine through your post today that I am sure you have no idea about, but bless you!
