This Saturday a couple of young ladies from church hosted a bridal shower for our friend, Rachel. Rachel and Peter are a sweet couple from our church who have known each other for years and will be getting married this August. It has been such a joy and a privilege to watch them grow from friends, begin a courtship, become engaged, and now anticipate their wedding. We are so excited for them!
Dan totally saw it coming all along.
After some snacks, a group of girls from church sang, “May the Mind of Christ My Savior.” They did a great job singing a beautiful hymn.
Our Pastor’s wife, Rachel’s future mother-in-law, gave a little talk. A big part of the talk was expressing our church’s excitement for the couple and telling Rachel how much we love her.
Then it was time for presents!
There were lots of kitchen items. Here, Rachel was telling everyone that she had just opened some measuring spoons.
Rachel is very sweet and thanked everyone for their gifts. This is her “thank you face”.
Her grandma framed a picture of a mountain in Alaska. Peter and Rachel plan on traveling through Alaska for their honey moon, and may even go hiking on the mountain pictured.
One of the last gifts Rachel opened was a very special quilt made by a family friend.
And, believe it or not, the next gift was another quilt made by another one of Rachel’s good friends.
Congratulations Rachel! We are looking forward to your wedding in less than two months!
