Bride-to-be-Kimberly / Bridal Shower / Santa Clarita, California
Weddings are FUN. It is fantastic to enjoy the days and months of being a bride! So it is expected that a bride as gorgeous as Kimberly be lavished upon with beautiful things and tons of fun.
Yes. This is all true.
But it gets even better.
Kimberly is rare, and special.
Upon looking up the mountain ahead of her – marriage – she has taken her time to count the cost. She has spent her years with Geoffrey in careful consideration and fervent pursuit toward this goal, and she has not stopped arming herself now that she is his fiancé.
This party was not all “giggles and goosh” (as some might describe a bridal shower!) NO – it was a weapon armory. Each woman at the tables here were hand-picked friends and mentors to Kimberly. Most married, some unmarried, but all fiercely devoted to Jesus Christ and God’s written Word.
Kimberly specifically asked that there be no games arranged or planned. Though the day was full of laughter, fun, and sweet delights, nothing there held weight like the words of wisdom from women who had stood years and years beside their husbands. Through personal battles, heart-aches, and even divorce for some, these marriage-warriors handed down arms to Kimberly, who will be taking up her own marriage mantle in just four weeks.
It is said that the character of a person can be established at the sight of her friends. Kimberly — you are a great woman 🙂
Twila Durrett — Married FORTY-FIVE years! The love and respect that Kimberly has for her mother is reflected in the way that she listens to her sweet and strong advice.
