Taylor and Ethan's wedding was the third in my very first three-wedding-in-three-days weekend. I was exhausted; I was beat down; I was jacked up on caffeine, but I knew I had a heck of a day waiting for me on a rooftop in my old stomping ground with one of my favorite families. Taylor is one of four daughters in a family that essentially counted my wife and me as their own when we first moved to Greensboro three years ago. Their lovingkindness and zest for life are an inspiration to us, and are one of the reasons why we still head back to visit that little non-denominational church in GSO every few months -- despite the fact that we've been gone longer than we were ever there. They're just so good at making us feel at home, that we belong.
So it was an honor and a privilege to share in this special day with the Starr family and Taylor and Ethan. It was standing room only at The Kress in downtown Greensboro, and the weather couldn't have been more beautiful. Taylor and Ethan, you have a tremendous group of individuals surrounding you, loving you, mentoring you, and lifting you up in prayer. Never take it for granted.
