I am grateful.
I have two brothers I love. We get along brilliantly, care deeply for each other, and encourage each other in our successes and failures. One is kind, and somehow never traded in his boyish giggle for a real laugh. He is the kind of man to whom small children and puppies flock. His words are sincere, and his heart is fleshy. He lives far away, but it feels like he lives next door. Always available- that is my Frankie.
The other brother is pictured above, and yesterday we celebrated 3 years of his marriage to Jen. Jen is a woman I am sure I would have hand-picked if given the opportunity. She has a Princess Diana quality- unassuming, warm, patient, and yet tenacious. Tim is a friend to everyone, whose voice God pitched just that little bit louder so that everyone can hear him. I have always pictured him as the Pied Piper- playing a tune that everyone follows. Jovial and light as air- Tim is just easy. You want to know him.
So on this anniversary (and since it is Thursday), we thought we would "throw-back" to a few of their wedding photos. We Biestmans love weddings, but we especially love them when they flourish.
