My friend Rachel was married Saturday. She was radiant. And one of the reasons she is so beautiful is because even at her own wedding, she was concerned about others. She wanted everyone to be comfortable, she wished she was able to talk with all the guests so they felt welcome and appreciated. She had time for her neices and nephews who wanted to tell her lots of little info. She wanted to make sure that noone was famished from being at the house all day and helping. On a day when most women are so preoccupied with their external beauty, she was emmanating the beauty of Christ in her. This is why I am so glad to call her one of my treasured friends. Rachel, I love you and now I love Erik too! May the two of you enjoy a lifetime of love, rooted in the unconditional love of our Savior.
