Congratulations Brooke & Luke on Your New Life Together

 Brookie Two Shoes is Getting Married.

No words can convey this Mama's gratitude and love
for this girl of mine.  The words just haven't been created yet---not in the dictionary.  I love her more than words can wield the matter, as Shakespeare once said.

Brooke has brought me more joy than
I ever knew possible.
She's been a dream to raise. 
From Cabbage Patch dolls
to coloring books galore
to life-long piano play
to 3-legged race back-to-back 7-year Champion
to Mission Trip lover
to Texas Youth & Govt Attorney General
to U.S. Senate Youth Delegate for Texas
to Coca-Cola Scholar
to Valedictorian
to the perfect Aggie
to Former Aggie with a costly ring
to SBC Journeyman in Thailand
to UTA Student Worker
to Connect Children's Minister
and I've missed a whole bunch in-between ...

Barrett Brookie and Blair ~ Preschoolers Together
Middle School Days - You made your own dresses - sounds like Pioneer Days

High School Days ...
and little Britt says: Why did you part my hair in the middle???

The most awesome Roommates that God brought your way.
Life Long Friends!

18 Times a Bridesmaid ...
Now you will walk the aisle to pledge your Love & Loyalty
Your Life at UTA  -  You loved these girls so much!  And they loved you!
Chiang-Mai, Thailand where you laid down your life for your friends.

You were only four when you crawled over the seats of your siblings
in the movie theater watching The Little Mermaid
to reach your daddy's neck and cry out to him:
"I'll never leave you, Daddy.
I'll never get married."
You were only 4.
The time has come.
Go forth to love this man.
And vow your love away forever.
And become one in the God you both adore.
It is your calling ~ it's your turn ~ and it's good!

And you met Luke from Kansas in Oklahoma ... and you knew ...

Life before Britt
You will always be my little girl
Love You More Than Words Can Tell

Treat Luke like a king among men, he is.
As you open this new chapter of your life,
May the Beautiful God in you
Grace you with His Power & Presence.
And may the Word He gave you yesterday,
2 Corinthians 5:14
be oh-so-ever true in both of you.
Controlled by the Love of your God!

Congratulations to Brooke and Luke! Know how proud you are of each of your beautiful kids--Luke is a blessed man to have her by his side in their forever.

I feel your mama's heart swelling with such joy as she enters a new chapter of life. Smiling and aching hearts at the same time--how is that? Only a mama knows what we're talking about--love your heart for your family and your selfless devotion to helping them be such pillars of character, wisdom, and gorgeous inside and out!

I can only echo what Annette says...she said it so well. Beautiful tribute and blessing on your daughter's life and the man that God has chosen for her.

May they have a Christ centered, God blessed marriage from day one and may He guide them each and every day in each and every step they take together. You have set a beautiful example and given all four such a beautiful legacy.

Praying for Our Friend Joanne Psalm 131:3 Waiting on God. Hope Now. Hope Always.

"Whoever welcomes a little child in My Name, welcomes Me." Matthew 18:5 We have posted pictures of the orphans receiving their gifts from you. Scroll down to the post entitled "Today Was the Big Day." Many orphans didn't own anything of their own, but now do, because of you.

I've met some amazing women through blogging. I would love to hear from you. My personal e-mail is:
I have another blog where I blog daily as a small group of us read through the New Testament this year. It's called A String of Pearls. We carry each other on mats (when we just can't walk anymore) to Jesus and sweet things like that.
