73 days, 20 hours, and 30 minutes!

Yep... I'm counting down the days until I'm Mrs. Davila! I am SO excited I can hardly contain myself!!! This has been such a whirlwind! Everything is going by so fast! I am glad I have already gotten everything planned! The bridesmaid dresses are bought, the accessories are a work in progress... My dress is bought and paid for! All of our major details are worked out! and most of the little ones too! Every sentence I write ends in an exclamation point! It's all so very exciting! and I use the word excited or exciting all the time! haha... ok, enough with the exclamation points.

On a more serious note... Please keep the Davila family in your prayers. Jordan's grandfather passed away in his sleep this past week. The family has been kind of shocked. They knew he wasn't in the best state of health recently, but for him to die now wasn't expected...It is kind of amazing when it happened though. Jordan's dad was scheduled to leave last wednesday to go to South Africa and his trip was postponed a week... Now he gets to be here for the funeral and burial. Kind of a blessing really that he didn't leave when he was supposed to.

Also, another very sad, very unexpected death occurred a couple nights ago. Mrs. Susan Owen died of a heart attack in the middle of the night. Her son is a very good friend of the family and has been for almost 15 years I think. She was my sister's and my Jr. high and High school principal. One of the sweetest, strongest women I have ever known. I pray that her family will rely on God's strength and love in this time. I am so thankful to know that she is in heaven now with Jesus! What a blessing to be in the presence of God! That's something to celebrate in this time of sadness...
