Wedding Shower

This past Sunday, we had a wedding shower here at Uchee Pines. I had been to a bridal shower before, but never to a wedding shower, where both the future wife and husband are present. Maru, my housemate from Peru, is getting married to Akeem. They both recently joined our workforce - her as the human resources manager, and him as chef in the kitchen. We had fun playing some games and they also shared their story, how they met at Wildwood etc.

Other than that, things are going well here. We are having a nice group of lifestyle guests and I've been working with two ladies. It's been busy, but I'm blessed with both of them. Our farm is flourishing, and together with some others, we've been planting Dr. Agatha Thrash's former garden. I will be posting some pictures in the near future.

Today, we had a graveside funeral at our cemetery. Sister Saylor, an elderly lady from here, passed away last night. She was very ill in the past few months, and I'm glad she can rest in Jesus now. It's already the third funeral we have had here since last September, but that's part of life. Oh, how wonderful it will be when there are no more burials, no more tears, and no more good-buys!
