Ok, I promised you a wedding story so here it is. You may remember that we had a problem with our bridesmaid dresses. Thankfully we ordered early enough that everything was resolved months before the wedding. You may also remember I ended up with an extra bridesmaid dress that was too small for any of the girls. Well, a month before the wedding, one of the bridesmaids dropped out of the wedding! Really? Who does that? Anyway I told Summer that since we have the extra dress she needed to find a friend or relative to fit the dress. She did! Her friend Amy jo came over and the dress fit her perfectly! Yay! Problem solved.
Fast forward to Thanksgiving week, the week of the wedding. Groomsman Jordan J, was supposed to come back to Florida from Texas, where he had moved the week before. Due to weather and holiday planes being over booked, Jordan spent a lot of time in the airport waiting, hoping to get on a flight. Friday at the rehearsal we had our friend David stand in for Jordan-still hoping he would arrive before the wedding. Later that evening, during the rehearsal dinner, we got word that there was no way Jordan was going to arrive for the wedding and he was leaving the airport. We sent my son Jordan to the house to get Jordan J.’s suit for the wedding because we had a few people in mind who it might fit. Jordan arrived back at the party with the suit and we had David try it on first…it fit! David was now in the wedding instead of just a guest.
To us, both parts of this story show us how God is in the details. We didn’t have time or money to order another dress but the extra one fit. With 18 hours until the wedding we found a replacement groomsman who fit the suit and had already rehearsed his part. God is good, all the time!
