Happy 18th Birthday Daniel!

Daniel John Sebo
Daniel "God is my judge" 
John "God's gracious gift" 

July 14, 1996
               Then these men said, “We shall not find any charge against this Daniel unless we find it against him concerning the law of his God.” Daniel 6:5

As a wee lad Daniel tended to find himself in trouble quite a bit. This is true of most highly creative people.:) Well, he's all grown up now and we look back on those days with a smile and a chuckle. Daniel is a very responsible young man, and a good example to all his siblings. Happy 18th Birthday to our special guy. WE  LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!

Miguel and Christina's Wedding


Our niece Christina  had her long awaited wedding on Saturday, July 12. It was a very sweet wedding.
Aunt Rocio did her hair.
 Some braids and a cascade of curls!
Last minute instructions for the wedding...
The final product.
Her mom did her make-up.
The groom (Miguel) and his parents.
    Bridesmaids and groomsmen.....
Best Man (Miguel's brother) and Maid of Honor

Here comes the bride and Uncle Johnny had the privilege of walking her down the isle.




                   Here is the reaction....

                    A lovely bride.

   They grow up so fast....

These photographs were taken by Caytlin.

         The minister reminded them that it took faithfulness to make a marriage work. He said this is what Christ has always been to us.

We have seen how much Miguel cherishes Christina.

It is very sweet to see them interact. The marriage ceremony is a  picture of a future wedding ceremony between Christ and  His bride (the church.)



The charge is given.

            Now the vows...
                          Prayer for God's blessing on the marriage...


Aunt 'Cio enjoying the wedding. Not so long ago she was saying her own vows. :)


A man who finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord...

Although Christina is slightly taller than Miguel, she is wearing SUPER high heels during the wedding.

The reception wasn't till 3:00 so we grabbed a burger...

Time flies when you are having fun. 



    

It is really nice to have older cousins to show the younger cousins the ropes...

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit fore him.” Now out of the ground the Lord God had formedf every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adamg there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he madeh into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said,
“This at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man.”I
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.                                                                       Genesis 2:18-24
