A woman seldom asks advice
before she has bought her wedding clothes.
-Joseph Addison

I've bought my wedding dress. Just like that. I woke up this morning, was piddling on my iPhone, and came across an article that linked up several sites to score beautiful, budget-friendly wedding gowns. And then, there she was: my dress.

There was one left.

It was my size. (Or... the size I should order based on the reviews.)

It was 30% off.

I've bought my wedding dress!

I am amazed at the wonderful gifts of God. You have touched so many as you have shared your life. You have showed all of us life is not perfect. Sometimes it is painful and we don't understand why, but our wonder Father knows everything. He in our sadness and dispare is preparing us for his wonderful gifts to come. I am thrilled for you! You have wanted to be faithful and give glory to God. That you have done. Now, enjoy the fruits of your labor and his blessings beyond measure.
