On this day five years ago our beautiful, beloved daughter, Sherri, married our handsome, (and truly wonderful) son-in-law, Jeremy! In spite of the rain that day in Buellton, California, it was a phenomenal day. The wedding was gorgeous. It was also poignant in that Sherri and Jeremy had moved up their wedding date so that her dad, Steven, could give her away. He was leaving very shortly for a 10-month tour of duty in Iraq. Needless to say, there were several moments during the ceremony when dry eyes were hard to find! The song, “Butterfly Kisses”, was a popular song at that time and one of Steven’s favorites. Although it was difficult to choose, I have picked a few of the 255+ photos we took that day to share with you here.
The theme of my life is God's enduring mercy that does not let us go. I have been married to Steven for 36 years. It's been a long, winding path with many hills and valleys, but God's gracious love has brought us through. We are still loving God and each other! We have a grown daughter and son, who are each married to wonderful spouses. And we have one grandson thus far. After many years away, we have returned to the Rogue Valley in Oregon. We are thoroughly enjoying our retirement home.
