Last weekend we had our Ladies Brunch, and of course I had it on my calendar in bold and I was expectantly waiting the day it would come.
There is something extraordinary about ladies together worshiping God. Women are astonishing, we can be sweet yet stern, insightful yet scatterbrained, strong yet fragile, serious and funny and wonderful all together. Spending our Saturday morning with the ladies of Urban Church was superb. Pastor Katie talked about living the kind of life God planned of us instead of the scrapes of a life we can put together or the awful life the enemy has planned for us, and afterwards we had great conversation at the round tables.
There was such an atmosphere of trust, ladies felt comfortable sharing their struggles and asking for prayer. It was so powerful and touching. Soon we will start planning for the next ladies event and I believe it will be mind-boggling too.
He is from Blaine, WA, that's where he was raised and wrote his first 18 chapters. His mom is half Italian, half French and his dad is of German descent. So he is a lot of different kinds of white and 100% white. He is 6'2'' and incredibly handsome. He treats her like there is no other woman in the whole wide world, like he needs her to be complete, like nothing matters but to memorize her smile, like his love for her is greater than anything he'd ever known.
She is from Bogota, Colombia, that's where she grew up, went to school, college and spent her first 24 years. Her mom is from Bogota, Colombia, her dad is from Bogota, Colombia; and that makes her 100% Colombian. She is almost 5'2'' and beautiful. She looks at him as though she was looking at the most marvelous of creations, like one would look at the stars if one had never been outside, like the world disappeared and all that exists is him.
They got married in June 6, 2009. Added Antonella to the Circus on August 16, 2012, and then they added Emiliana on February 28, 2014. The circus keeps adding acts, and it just gets more and more fun.
They all decided to document their life in this blog because when you are so happy your cheeks hurt from smiling, and you can't believe God not only answered your prayers but also added details you didn't even know you wanted, the least you can do is share it with the world so your story won't be forgotten.
