This weekend we had the opportunity to celebrate a very special occasion with our good friends, Justin and Courtney. By a stroke of luck in 2008 Justin moved into Brandon's college apartment. He was just the subleaser, a replacement roomie for the summer, at least that's what he thought. Turns out, this would become one of his closest friends. This was the summer that I was studying abroad, meeting my own close friends in my own random situation. The Lord truly does place people in your life at a strategic time with a careful plan in place.
If you were to meet Justin and Brandon, you would think they have known each other for a very long time. They both have such a sense of humor and are a perfect match, if you will. When I returned from Peru that summer three years back I was introduced to this new bromance and was instantly so thankful that Brandon had met such a great friend. Friends share such a special place in our lives. I was also incredibly blessed to be introduced to Courtney, Justin's girlfriend at the time. She is so sweet. Over the past three years Brandon and I have kept in touch with Justin and Courtney. We have had the opportunity to go to football games together, celebrate their engagement, and we even spent a long weekend at the Mangy Moose with them this summer. We have shared their happiness through their engagement and this weekend we were so blessed to share their wedding, Brandon serving as a groomsman.
