Congrats Melissa and Jeremy!

Drove down to Monroe this afternoon to attend the wedding of now Mr. and Mrs. Jeremy and Melissa Mcdonald (Melissa is Lisa's niece, which makes her my niece-in-law:).  It was a beautiful ceremony in a beautiful Lutheran church (Zion Lutheran, Monroe - WELS).  The happy couple begin their life together in the Name, and with the blessing, of our Triune God.  Always a good way to start!  Very nice looking bridal party and a gorgeous bride - and lots of smiling faces.  Oh, and very good food at the reception. :)

The only downer was that, on our drive down, Aaron and I hit Ann Arbor at the time when everyone was leaving the Michigan game and merging onto I-94.  For a good half hour, we were surrounded by Michigan fans on every side - it was pure torture, I assure you!  We both fervently prayed, "Good Lord, deliver us!" :)  

Almighty, everlasting God, our heavenly Father, grant that by Your blessing Melissa and Jeremy may live together according to Your Word and promise.  Strengthen them in faithfulness and love toward each other.  Sustain and defend them in every trial and temptation.  Help them to live in faith toward You, in the communion of Your holy Church, and in loving service to each other that they may ever enjoy Your heavenly blessing; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.
