Our Sweet Daughter Natalie is Marrying the Man of Her Dreams Joshua Thomure!
Here is the news you've all been waiting for: Natalie Sue Searles our sweet daughter is marrying Joshua Lee Thomure, we are not sure of the day and time yet, they are hoping sometime either at the end of September or early October. Wow, I don't know if I'm ready for this, but I guess I don't have a choice. I'm filled with mixed emotions, I'm so excited for Natalie and Joshua, they've loved each other for a long time and now the time is right for them to move forward. At the same time, it will be a huge adjustment for our family to lose Natalie's amazing unwavering help and support in the home. Change is good, but ever so hard.
Joshua has already been around so much these past 4 years that he is already part of the family, all the children are so excited to get a new brother. Joshua was born in Missouri, he came here in 2004 days before Luke's accident. He was in the same ministerial program that Daniel was in down in Centralia, WA, he has a amazing passion for GOD, he is the youth pastor at our church, he loves Natalie's little brothers and sister and they adore him. In fact Lily asked who she would marry now that Josh is marrying Natalie, I think in her little mind she had already planned to marry him one day, a little young wouldn't you say? He has always been very kind and compassionate with Luke, always gives him hugs and kisses and has been one of Luke's hugest prayer warrior. We are truly blessed to have him join our family officially.
We had a very busy day today, church this morning, followed by a celebration dinner at the Spaghetti Factory, ran to Costco, came home to drop off things and kids, left right away to go to the airport to pick up my brother and his wife, who are visiting from Denmark, went to my sister Jills home for dinner, came home put the kids to bed, got the laundry going, caught up on some computer stuff, finally posting here and then I'm off to bed. Looking forward to a busy, but hopefully fun week with family get togethers and outings. Luke had a good day, though the heat of the day was kind of hard on him, I'm so thankful that he is doing better.
Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Suzi
