her gown is interwoven with gold.
That next month (September) keeps appearing as I plan the days ahead and all that needs to be done by D-Day (1st day of school). So with all this in my mind, of course I had my TO DOs for today completely mapped out. After all, I am, if nothing else, obsessively, compulsively organized. In a most disorganized way. At least on paper I look pretty organized, thanks to my Planner.

It is amazing to me how a wedding gown makes every girl feel beautiful, precious and royal.
Like a princess.

and wanted to know why my dress was hanging in the hall.
After looking at the pictures we had taken, she mentioned her gown and I immediately

But what my planner can’t show, my heart does reveal.
It is well with my soul.
Today I had a plan.
I had my To Do Lists written.
But today instead of my plans –
a better thing.
A beautiful gift.
A magical day…and for that I am thankful.

It was just the way that we rolled!

honor him, for he is your Lord.
