Walking on Sunshine!

It’s official! Our family has grown. Abigail and Ryan De Roos are now happily married. It was a joyous occasion. We are so excited for them and for all our new Canadian friends and family God has blessed us with. Each and every one of them are dear folks. You know the kind when you meet it feels like you have always known them?

In spite of the typically cold January weather expected, it was a beautiful day for the wedding. Tons of lovely wedding photos were taken outside by Christine Byrd. The De Ross family and friends caravan were excited to be in the, comparatively speaking, sunny south.

Henry and Kara (parents of the groom) posted they accidentally turned south instead of north on their return trip to Ontario. They didn’t recognize the error until they ended up at the gulf coast. Sure! Right! Dan wants to know where Henry bought his GPS. He wants one too. Seriously, we are pleased they were able to spend some family time together in the southern sunshine.

Dan and I "purpled" up!

We would agree with a friend’s comment, “It was the most God honoring, worshipful wedding ever.” The young couple mission minded as they are, said they would rather spend money sharing Jesus than on the wedding. Friends and family served them well. They pooled their gifts and resources for a simple but absolutely beautiful wedding.

Appropriately Abigail chose “I’m Walking on Sunshine” as her recessional. She has always been a ray of sunshine. Ryan and Abigail are literally, a match made in heaven. When Minister Hooper pronounced them husband and wife she flashed that gorgeous smile and shouted, Woohoo! Our sentiments exactly!


Psalm 97:11-12 - "Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name. NIV
