9:30 p.m….We just got through watching Amazing Grace. Get it. It’s good.
Beth was sitting on the couch, soaking her ankle in warm water. Domino decided to help:
Y’all need to watch the video on Beth’s site. (I’ve got that song stuck in my mind….along with Ethan’s Viking song )
Yesterday I wanted to tell you what I was doing, but knew that Brandon and Rachael would see it on here. So I had to keep it a secret. Darn near killed me
Bethany went out and got some roses for Brandon and Rachael’s first anniversary, to put in the church today. I arranged them in a vase Beth had. Yellow roses are Rachael’s favorite, but since the wedding was blue and silver, we did not use yellow roses in the wedding. So we used yellow and white roses for today.
Then Beth and I sang for the special music, the same song we sang in the wedding last year. It’s “I Will Be Here” by Stephen Curtis Chapman. It’s in my music player on the left if anybody wants to hear it. Just click on the start button, and click on that song. Steve tried to get a picture from up in the sound room, but it came out dark and very reddish looking. I’ve noticed that many pics in our church come out reddish, I think due to the paneling we have in there.
When we got up there to sing, I asked them to come sit on the front pew so we could sing to them. Then I told them that every day I pray that God will bless their marriage and bring them closer together. Of course, I couldn’t say all that without tears, so Herb (our pastor) handed me a Kleenex.
I actually had to sort of let Brandon in on it before church started. After he takes the offering, he usually heads out to the kitchen to grab something to eat. I told him today he could not leave, and he told me he was going to leave, since I said that. So I said, “Please, please, please….,” and told him we were going to sing to them. He stayed. He was probably hungry, but he stayed.
After church, we went to Schlotzsky’s for lunch, and had a good time. Brandon and Rachael are going out to eat by themselves tonight. Can’t imagine why they would want to do that They are going to Taste of Texas. It’s a nice steakhouse on the northwest side of Houston. Brandon use to work on the air conditioning there, and he said it is a restaurant that is clean enough to eat off the floor in the kitchen. There aren’t many restaurants like that. It’s also pretty expensive, so I told him if they wanted to go out to eat there, they could pay for it It will be nice for them to have a nice romantic dinner alone. We do a lot of family stuff together.
