At the beginning of May we had a wedding here in town. Jenny, a member of our congregation serving as a nurse deep in the heart of Uganda, married Dr. Jim Knox. Together they will continue to serve at the clinic in Uganda. It was a lovely celebration!
Emily and Mom did the flowers, which were so pretty against the dresses.
Jenny had made cake pops to decorate all the tables. My friend Karen had come from SCotland to take the wedding pictures.
Alaina (of The Cooks Next Door) made the brownie cake which was so beautiful and tasted delicious).
The most amazing thing happened while at the wedding. I actually discovered a relative! Dr. Jim's friends David and Susan Winslow were in attendance. Winslow is my maiden name and as soon as we met we began comparing family trees and sure enough we both are descended from Kenelm Winslow (brother of Edward Winslow) who came to America on the Mayflower II. It was so exciting to meet a new relative and to find so much in common with our shared faith.
