FOUR MONTHS!

I completely forgot our four month anniversary was a few days ago!
This is the first chance I've had to upload my wedding photos. I want to go in stages from the events and share a little each time.
Today is bridesmaids and flowers!

My lovely ladies=
Jen Cato my co-worker of five years
Rebbecca Reed childhood friend and sewing buddy
Shelly Arnold new sister, we share the same anniversary!
Janet Smoly my older sister...my first best friend
Cindy Atwell (and Jimmy) little sister... my Pippin
Kristen Arnold another loving sister!!
Corinne Fitzgerald life long friend and basically my sister
Erin Wood another amazing best friend from childhood
So I have eight best friends!! But each one unique and from a different area and stage of life =)
Each girl made me a special scrapbook page of fun memories.


I was a little anxious to get out to Brian to start the ceremony. To help keep me calm we sung some Journey (Don't Stop Believing!) and then spent some time in prayer...offering my marriage up to the Lord =)
Funny story...I'm the last of the four Witherspoon ladies to get married and so my sisters and I were a little emotional the morning of the wedding... As we drove to the church we listened to the Twila Paris song "How Beautiful" and we all started balling!! We found our composure and went on...and then we started praying and we cried again! (We cried two more times after that hahaha)

We always laugh at ourselves after =)


With the help of my awesome Bridesmaids we bought and assembled the flower arraignments ourselves and they were perfect! I wanted a lot of color with a wildness feel!


Next up the handsome groom and his men....

The Enemy's plan...

Well this is a sobering update.
As a newly wed and a wife totally head over heels in love with my husband...it breaks my heart to see possible divorce happening in my family.
Right now we have two hurting families, one on my side and one on Brian's side, separated and pending divorce.
Since I experienced the broken results first hand I just hate to see other couples suffering like this.
Anyways just keep us all in your prayers and pray for wisdom for Brian and I as we minister to these folks.
In other news...Whats with the snow tonight!! I'm enjoying the last stage of winter!!

Midnights

First night on midnights, came in with a BANG! (for real...haha)
I think I'll enjoy my new squad and new schedule!
I get to see Brian SO MUCH MORE. We are loving finally getting to share meals and hangout time together.
I've been starting up some hobbies again which is wonderful. Right now its just some sewing projects and scrap booking our wedding stuff.
I'll have to post all the pictures of my projects! We finally have Internet and cable in the apartment so I'll be able to upload my pictures. I'm so happy to have INTERNET! And can I just say I love HGTV and Food network! Thats all I really watch and its so inspiring =)

The Dark Side

I'm switching to the DARK SIDE! (Darth Vader Theme Song)
Last week I was told I would be switching to the midnight shift...
Wow I was not expecting or wanting this change. But it's happening nonetheless!
It's always good to remember that God knew this change was coming and He will make it better for my life if I trust Him that His plans are always for my best!

Brian of course is SOOO excited that we will finally be on the same schedule!
Now we will both work all night and sleep all day together =) I can't wait to be in a NORMAL routine with my husband...wow what's that gona look like!

Was I sad and cried about it? Yes for one day...
I'm so disappointed to leave men that trained and molded me. I was comfortable and confident in my post and with my side partners. But life can't be about comfort. We have to still be able to have PEACE and JOY in any circumstance! Wow this has been a great lesson for my life to Accept all trials and to keep joy and hope!

I will miss my dear friends...but will make some new ones, there are two other LADIES on this new shift! These were some of my buddies:

My memory verse this month is Romans 12:12

Be joyful in Hope, Patient in affliction, and Faithful in Prayer".

Goodbye sunrises and sunshine... Hello night skies and darkness...
