The beautiful cake!! Fondant is so picturesque :-)


This is terrible picture quality, but how fun was their entrance?!! Complete with secret service.

Bethany the Bride

I am so glad that I had the privilege of seeing Bethany's wedding. It was absolutely beautiful. As many of you may know, I don't cry very easily, but I had tears in my eyes at the ceremony. The whole wedding was so refreshing--totally focused on God. It was simple, but so very beautiful. Thank you, Bethany, for allowing other people to see the beauty of your relationship with Dan. And for leading a beautiful and glorious life, both in your single life and in your courting days and now into married life! I pray it will be a grand adventure!

More pictures to come soon.....

Packing!

Randomosity

....the high in Lehr for Monday is now -2. Yes, the high is below zero. Oh how I miss ND. :-) And on Monday at my grandpa's house the high will be 83. How is this fair? Despite these temperatures, I am stoked for my arrival in the small Bismarck airport! My mom will be the one picking me up!! (she took the day off work :) So maybe we can go shopping....... ;-)

Christmas break starts tonight, but it really started last night. Last night I got to bed a little after 1. Wow! That was amazing. I really haven't slept at NIGHT this week, so it's a
new concept that needs to be re-introduced to me. I started liking coffee. I'm kind of sad that I have conformed to the ways of this world.So, over Christmas Break, I will be at my grandpa's house for two weeks!!! :-) First, we will go to the wedding in Nebraska though!!!! :-) Super excited about that! =)

I just finished packing. Wow, that was difficult. I thought about packing two suitcases. (I am a girl needing clothes for a whole month after all. ) But no. United Airlines would then like to charge me an extra 20 dollars for that. They aren't getting my money! Ha!! It took a lot of work. The cliche' sitting on the suitcase? Yeah, that was me. For my carry-on, I'm bringing my queen size blanket I am crocheting, my beautiful mac, and my camera bag. Maybe I'll take a picture.

This is Pastor Jack after our Advent Service.

I am so excited to go home!

And guess what? The day I fly home, the high is supposed to be 22! Whooo!!!! Better leave the sandals at school! ;-) One week and I'll be home! I'm super-duper excited!! Oh, hopefully I'll do a Thanksgiving post of family soon. Finals aren't too bad so maybe this week. If not, I'll try to squeeze it in while I am home. :) YAY HOME!!!!!

I love my family. Can you tell?

A new leaf

I want to be a real woman of God. One who desires His will to be done before mine is even close. That I will be willing to put aside my own wants and "needs" to further His kingdom. I have been noticing my own negative attitudes toward people and have realized that they need to change. Finally, today I was listening to "What if His People Prayed" by Casting Crowns and realized that I haven't really been praying fervently or even with a passion for God's people. WE NEED TO PRAY! We need to have a passion for God and his people. They might make us really upset and drive us crazy, but God still loves them. I might not personally love everyone, but God still does. (I really have no idea how He does it!)

This fall has been an interesting one indeed. It has had twists and turns in the road. Even some tears shed. I love this fall. Jumping in the leaf piles. Seeing the leaves turning. Seeing me turning too, into (hopefully) a woman after God's very own heart.

Sorry....

Wow. It has been forever and a day since I last posted. Goodness, I'm sorry (though I probably don't have any more readers, so I don't even know why I am apologizing). There is lots going on right now, but God is in control. He'll handle it all.
^I wrote that about a week ago. Oops.

Um....doing some wedding planning. Almost have the details of bridesmaid dresses picked out. I really want to try my dress on again..... :-) One of my friends (my maid of honor, actually :) has been looking at wedding stuff because she will be getting married this coming October. :-) Guess who gets to be her MATRON of honor. Wow, that's weird. I'll be married! Pretty stoked about that. Not much is going on at school. It's November. Did you know that? And know what that means?! I GET TO SEE MY FAMILY in a little over three weeks!!!!!! I'm a tad excited. They are pretty awesome.

Hopefully, I'll be more devoted to it. My intention was to put up a picture a day on it. But I have been "too busy."
More comments=more posts?

Oy vey.

Sorry its been so long since I last posted!! I've been enjoying using all my apple purchases. :-) Quite lovely. Enjoying classes (except for one...I tend to zone out when listening to Professor Naw). I'm really stoked for Exploring Creativity. Its going to be amazing!! Our current project is making an alligator out of paper and string. Those are our only guidelines. I'll try to post a picture when I'm done with it. I'm going to use silly string.....

A picture from my backyard....[happy sigh]

So, exciting things are happening (I'm not even talking wedding plans). I just bought enough apple stuff to stay away from the doctor for years! :) I got a 13-inch macbook pro, free iPod touch (8gb) and the standard Creative Suite 4.

My engaging life

So my readers want to know the story, eh?

It all started with wii bowling one night in October…. Its true. Well ok let me back up. David’s roomie was Ben and my roomie was Brittany (the parents of our “family” : ) Britt asked if I wanted to come wii bowling. (the previous year I had gone off campus maybe four times except for church if that shows you how much fun I allowed myself :) I reluctantly said yes. Well, our family formed from there and eventually there got to be about 8 of us who would hang out, going bowling etc. David, Ben, and the other ben played as the worship band at IBC (Immanuel Baptist church). Well David was texting me one night saying that I should sing with them. First response: NO WAYYYY!!!! For pretty much anyone who knows me, you know I don’t consider myself to have a good singing voice. Sure its fine if I sing in a group. But in a band? As the only girl??!! :) Oh boy, I was not up for that. But it was a really small church…hm, oh the dilemma. So I went to a practice thinking ok no big deal, I’ll just listen. But they got me to sing!!

Anyway, so David and I got to know each other that way and through the “family outings”. :) Eventually he got outcast because I was a daughter and he was a son and we couldn’t be having any incest in the family! lol

So he came to visit my family in December for about a week. Played some wii. J Couldn’t really go outside though, because it was so brutually cold. But he got to spend a week with my family. The boys loved him, took him on as their older brother and my mum had coffee with him for three hours one morning (I slept in, lol).

Then it was back to school, and then this summer working at Riverwoods. Working at Riverwoods was quite the experience. I’m so glad he was there working too, because I doubt I could explain it to him. Its really just something you have to be there for. Well, a couple weeks ago, he called my family’s cell. My family was in Medora that day, so he talked to my dad and asked for permission to marry me and all. Mum said it was all in God's timing, because they had stopped and were overlooking the beauty of the badlands.

After we finished work on Saturday, August 1st, David told me to get all gussied up because he was taking me on a date. We went to Lonestar to eat, then David practiced his violin with Donna (a lady at the church David had a duet with). So yeah, listening to two violins was beautiful. After they were done, Donna gave us ice cream. J Then we went to see Ice Age 3. After that, I was really glad we had a fun date, but ready to go home. Not David. He suggested going to the church. I was tired and against it, but said ok. Well we went to the Sunday School room. He asked me what he first asked in that room months ago.

“You asked to start going out with me??”

“Well, what did I ask specifically?”

“To start dating me???”

Then he pulled something out of his back pocket. And I thought, “Hm, that’s weird.”

Suddenly, he was down on one knee, asking to marry me.

“Yes.” [screams]

:-D

And now… it’s smiles all around. :-) The wedding is this summer, June or July. Mum and I are planning, planning, planning. Susan, Mum and I are going dress shopping tomorrow. So exciting! But it’s finally hitting me.

Cuteness.

So today started out a normal day. Devos at 7. Then get ready for the day. Well I take my shower in the maple complex (same building as my "office") because my cabin doesn't have a shower or bathroom. First I decided to drop something off at my desk. When I saw a piece of paper that said "I love you Megan. Love David Wehr" Awww. Ok I thought it was really sweet. But now today I keep finding notes that say "I love you and can't wait to see you again." (He went with his teens to a waterpark for the day) So far, I have found eight notes at my desk, not including the note that he wrote for me on my computer. He put one of the notes in my camera bag (I thought that was pretty smart--he knew I would find that one! :-) So yeah, I'm just bragging on my man...once again. :)

Oh dear.

I have been a horrible blogger. I'm sorry. Life has been full as of late. Work has been busy and when i do have a break, I generally take a nap. I work until ten at night some nights. And as soon as David shows up, we go for a walk. :) Thus, no blogging time. I'm sorry. This poor blog. I'm surprised it doesn't just take its URL and leave. "Good riddance Megan! I've had enoguh of you!" But its still here.

Well, I'm really excited. I get to go home in two weeks to see family. :D I love North Dakota, and I miss it so much. Can hardly wait. Then two weeks at home (one of which David will be there :). And school starts. I'm kind of excited (always am for like the first...month lol). The classes I'm taking are Man and Woman (upper English Lit class. I get to read Little Women!), Exploring Creativity, Video Production, History of Civilization 2, and [drum roll please] Personal Fitness Training. Yes, I'll actually be exercising. I'm doomed. Oh, and I'm going to start working (hopefully off campus at Dunkin' Donuts), seeing as I only have 13 credits. No studios, granted video production will take lab time.

(I just had to. We've taken pictures of us like three times since we've known each other lol. We really need to use the self timer more often.)

Oh, David has a partner with his teens. And she claims that she is his wife. So I have to fight off another woman!! lol Oh, I've really gotten attached to one of David's teens. She and I really hit it off last week, it's awesome. :)

A sense of certainty

We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.

I just want to say


...that my guy is so awesome. We went for a walk last night and my flip flop broke when we were coming back. He offered me his shoes. I didn't really think they would fit so I declined. Know what he did then? He took off his shoes and socks and "suffered," as he calls it, right along with me. :) I love that guy they call David Wehr.

Morally right

The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct."

II Corinthians 12

I will not boast about myself except in my weaknesses. Verse 5

Hm. I don't do that very often. 

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions. For when I am weak, then I am strong. Verses 9 and 10


Perfect in weakness. Weak, then I'm strong. The Christian life is full of oxymorons. Unfortunately, sometimes morons as well. But the thing is, we're all morons. We've mocked God whether we know it or not. Whether we admit it or not. It's truth. We boast constantly of all of our own accomplishments which is nothing compared to what God has done. How often do we talk about our weaknesses? And brag about them? I certainly don't. But it's only when we come before God, knowing we are nothing, that we realize (granted, only partially) what he has done for us. If God gave us what we deserve, it would be hell. Yeah, I said it. H-E-double toothpicks. That's what we deserve. But it isn't what God offers us. He offers us redemption when we least deserve it. I don't claim to understand it. And I don't claim I ever will. I don't understand alot of what He does. Wow. What did I do to deserve such a saving power in my life? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Yes, a post.

So...I've been thinking for some time that I should blog. But I figure that if The Simple Life has activity once again, that's my cue to login to blogger once again. Not alot happening lately. Its pretty quiet on campus. I know of four other girls in my dorm; and there is generally three other students in the cafeteria when I eat there. But I kind of really like it. :) Towards the end of the school year, I tend to just get sick of people. 

I miss the prairie. The beautiful, never ending prairie. Sad fact is that it does end. And replaced by concrete. Boring, disgustingly gray concrete. And this boring disgustingly gray concrete gets even worse when it is road construction season. 

However, despite the lack of prairie, I have been uber happy today. You see I'm planning this awesome surprise for one of my friends. So that randomly gets me to smile. Alot. Oh, David tends to make me smile too. :)

In other news, my mum is coming here this weekend! I get to see her Friday. So we'll get to hang out. :) Saturday night is Jessie's graduation party. Then my birthday is Sunday. We'll go to my church -- it's just David and me singing. I'll move into Riverwoods on Monday night. I'll have my computer because I'm the media/logistics person. So I might be able to update ya'll. Probably just on the weekends though. Well until then...


Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:12-14
