Summer's Last Wave

Friends, I have big dreams of blogging again. To try to get back in the groove, I'm starting with a post that's wonderfully simple. Mr. R and I drove to Minnesota today for a business meeting. My wonderful husband went out of his way to take me by one of my happy places on the way downtown Minneapolis. Please share with me the wonder of Noerenberg Memorial Gardens on the shore of Lake Minnetonka at sunset. The last of the year's foliage is rich with color and texture. Enjoy!

Goodbye, summer. Goodbye, Noerenberg Gardens.

To God be the glory!

Presenting Mr. and Mrs...

From my seat in the front pew, I was delighted to witness that wonderful moment when the pastor said, "I'd like to present to you Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Castille!"

From Hopeless Orphan to Beloved Wife

God abounds in lovingkindness!

Surrounded by Love

Since we adopted Zhenya from Russia in 2001, she has been blessed to be surrounded by so many who want the very best for her. Her wedding day was a grand display of the support and love that have made her life rich and contributed to healing from deep scars from her early childhood. Her dad and I thank God for Zhenya's many many friends who have walked with her through thick and thin!

They. Are. Married!!!
