Byrd Ashley gets married.
When I first met her, I thought she was so cool.
I wanted to be her friend.
She couldn’t even remember my name so she would say “hey girl” when I would come up to her at church.
Good thing she asked someone for my name because we ended up becoming housemates and some of the best of friends.
This girl is hilarious. She is so forgiving. Sacrificial. Encouraging. A hard worker. Motivating. Caring. Wise. Devoted. Did I mention, funny?
My life is better because Byrd is in it. I am more like Jesus because Byrd teaches me how to be.
This afternoon, I will travel to a place that has some of my fondest memories.
A place where the Lord changed my life forever and gave me a new heart.
I met some of the most amazing friends there and we did life together, a lot of it.
Byrd is one of those friends.
Our friends have been through quite the gamut – births, deaths, divorces, break-ups, get-togethers, ministry, moves, marriage – you name it.
Byrd is a rock. She is strong when many of us our weak.
This weekend, the last of the “ministry house” ladies is getting hitched.
Joining her life with an amazing godly man. I can already feel the tears and the lump in my throat.
I am so full of gratitude.
It is so amazing to see the Lord’s handiwork and the way He has been weaving all our lives.
I am so glad she is part of mine and can’t wait to stand up there as she enters into a marriage covenant with the amazing Andrew Campbell (he would need a whole other post. this guy is legit).
Andrew & Ashley we hope this weekend (and next week of course) is nothing short of awesome.
PS: you are the only gal Im okay with Micah running his fingers through your hair 😉 hope Andrew doesnt mind!
Okay sentimental stuff over,
This weekend I will also:
- Hopefully finish the Hobbit with Micah during our car rides.
- Leave my baby overnight for the first time so I can spend the night with the girls (pray for me! Micah said he is sleeping outside with Haddon… don’t worry not in the cold he won’t).
- Eat Taste of Thai food
- Get in lots of sweet girl time, oh how I miss them!
- Stare at the mountains and soak in that majesty.
