Anyway, my big brother Drew has had an amazing ten years. His first wife left and he took it like anyone takes it, I guess. But then, he made something beautiful out of it. He studied and learned and waited and prayed. And then he met Jamie.
Jamie is a really great woman of God. She is a missionary who has traveled the world with an African Children's Choir. And she fell in love with my big, broken-hearted brother.
Here they are on Saturday looking so happy. My brother isn't the easiest man to get to know, but Jamie really understands him. They hosted a very simple and lovely wedding, that was more about worship than a wedding. Their church service started with 30 minutes of Praise and Worship, and then the actual ceremony started.
Oh, yeah. Drew is about a foot taller than Jamie.
Here are the girls. Jamie let them select their own dresses and they looked so cute.
Here are the guys. Charles, the best man, is about a foot shorter than Drew, so they took this one to be funny. Don't you like their ganster hats and canes?
We had a great time and enjoyed the party. Instead of a cake they served hundreds of cupcakes (yum!) I decorated the car for the newlyweds and off they went to who knows where. They wouldn't say.And here we are in our wedding finery. I forgot to take a pic of the shoes, but I will show you them later. I think we cleaned up nicely. Notice my cute new haircut, if I do say so myself!
I don't know Jamie that well, and to be honest, my brother and I don't know each other as adults. But I am happy for him. I want him to find joy in all that the Lord has brought him. It has been a tough road for Drew, but this happy beginning is an awesome reward.
Congratulations, Drew and Jamie!
