WooHoo! My big brother just got married!
Ben I’d like to say how richly blessed I am - and I’m sure others as well - by your example, by your dependance upon the Lord, by seeing how He has worked and continues to work in your heart and life, how He is shaping you into the man you are today. Ever since we were young I have looked up to you as my big brother and dear friend; that admiration still grows as the years pass, with life’s onward walk and God’s sovereign leading. Thank-you for all the encouragements you have given and the way you point me to the Lord above all and walking in His ways; how living in full dependance and communion with Him brings great joy and fulfillment, and how He is thoroughly sufficient! Jess: you have a gem in Ben! May you treasure him greatly, but above all, may you treasure The One who brought you together and grow in your love for the Lord. Ben and Jess I wish you both God’s richest blessings throughout these coming years together in your marriage. May He abundantly supply you both with His guidance, grace, wisdom, strength, and all you stand in need of. Walk with your hands held together by His, and though loving each other deeply, keep Him first place in your hearts. I love you both very much, and look forward to what the future will hold for this new Fennema family!
What a beautiful and fun day, where the Lord was glorified!
There will be more documentation on Ben and Jess's wedding coming at a later date. Stay tuned for more!
