WHAT A WEEK - What an understatement!!!

Monday I was at the church with my other Bible Study ladies working on the setting up the new clothing ministry, Klothes Kloset. We took a break to go have a bite to eat at a local pizza place. We had just finished eating when I became REALLY ill and told the ladies "please take me home, I'm really ill". The next thing I know I'm home and not only are all of them and Mickey around me but the EMC's are taking my vital signs. 911 had been called because I had passed out. Even our wonderful Pastor was called and prayed for me. I do not remember passing out but I have never gotten so sick so fast in my life.




All my vital signs were fine, except my oxygen was a little low. I spent the remainder of that day sleeping so soundly on the couch that I was not even aware when my dear friend, Sandra, came by to check on me.

Tuesday I was still feeling pretty weak, although by afternoon I was beginning to feel a little better. Then late Tuesday afternoon Mickey gets a call that his nephew is on his way from Tennessee to Branson to get married. Can we come? ...... Can we come? Of course, we will come.

So Wednesday morning we head out for Branson to attend this wonderful Cowboy wedding held at the Chapel at Silver Dollar City.


The Wilderness Church. An old log cabin church that was moved to this site. Even the pews were made from logs. The wedding was performed by a Parson and was a wonderful ceremony. At the conclusion of the wedding they rang the church bell. It couldn't have been more lovely.




The bouquet. Both the bride and her Maid of Honor had bouquets like this.





The beautiful bride, Laura



.....get a look at those boots!!!!

The bride & groom, Laura & Wayne.

Mr. & Mrs. - October 15, 2009



The wedding party. Laura's daughters, 6 year old Kaycee & 14 year old Kalyn (Katie), were her attendants.



I must tell you this group really turned heads as they walked through the park to the Wilderness Church and then again after the wedding.

The cake.





No words necessary!!!!



The grooms Uncle Jerry and Dad, Ronnie.
The groom and his father.
Mickey & I with the groom, Mickey's nephew, Wayne. Mickey was the Best Man.





Dinner at The Ol*ive Ga*rden after the wedding.




Mickey & I and a new "friend".



The 6 from Tennessee stayed a few more days to enjoy Silver Dollar city & Branson but Mickey & I rushed home Friday morning right after breakfast to get ready for our Friday night Prayer Meeting.


What a joyous time and special occasion to be a part of.


Congratulations Wayne & Laura!!!!!!!

Welcome home, Susan. So glad you were able to go. What a beautiful couple the newlyweds make!

I have been in prayer for you, in fact, had thought of you already this morning. I was happy and even relieved to see your post.

Now, rest your temple if possible! :) Love you all.

That must have been a scary situation, passing out and not knowing why. So glad you went to the wedding...the phoos are great, and the bride and groom look happy, and so did the girls...may God bless them all in their new family! Now that you've had a wonderful time, I hope you'll get checked out!

Take care...God bless,
Mary

Good to hear from you again, ma'am.

Always good to be able to go to a wedding!

Oh my goodness, for getting sick so quickly and so severely...you sure seem like you bounced back. You look great in the photos! Do they know what caused you to get so sick? Hope all is well and that you are feeling 100%.

Brenda said...

Ok, I'm glad the wedding was nice and all, but you left us hanging a little on what happened to you. Did they say what the cause of it was? I'm so glad you're ok anyhow.
Extra hugs to ya, Susan. Take care of yourself!
Love,
Brenda

We love that little chapel at Silver Dollar City. Beautiful place for a wedding.

You probably don't know it, but I was at your house just after the ambulance. I talked with Shirley and she told me what was going on. I left just as your pastor was pulling on the scene. God has more people praying for you, and watching over you than you will ever know! ;-)

Kansas Bob said...
