About a month before my wedding, my bridesmaids threw me a beautiful bridal shower! Being into party planning and crafts, I tried to help as much as I could - much to my bridesmaids' dismay. In the end, it was a fun celebration with diy flower crowns, bundt cakes, tattly floral tattoos, gifts, and surprises.
I seriously had the best bridesmaids. For my bachelorette, they took me around downtown LA for wine tasting, photos at the LACMA, and dinner. Thanks to my bride-to-be status, we got complimentary macaroons and desserts wherever we went!
During all the celebrations, it was easy to get lost in the details and feel my pride. However, the verse, James 4:10, kept me grounded (for the most part) and helped me realize that God was the ultimate planner. As I died to myself, God worked everything out in ways better than I imagined.
God is faithful, and I am excited to share how He continued His work in my wedding and honeymoon in the next post!
