They met before going on a mission trip together their junior year of college at Virginia Tech. Katherine was immediately drawn to Nick because he was friendly and hilariously funny! Much to their surprise, they were placed in to the same small group. This jumpstarted their friendship rather quickly and allowed them to get to know one another really well. Not too long after, they were officially official as boyfriend and girlfriend!! And now, they’re husband and wife!! Enjoy this sneak peek from their beautiful day!! #theherrintons #AtLastAMuka
September 21st kicked off a new semester of a bible study that I attend every Fall and Spring. The topic this semester is centered around the idea of waiting. On the very first meeting I openly told my table group, I feel like I'm coming out of a really trying and hard season of waiting. And I feel like I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. God is faithful and because of this season of waiting, I believe it to be true. Is it selfish to hope I'm out of waiting now?. Six days later I went to my annual gynecologist appointment. I'm a huge proponent of women's health and a believer in the importance of annual visits because truthfully, you don't know what you don't know. I had scheduled my visit with a new doctor. I didn't even know her but, not once did she make me feel like she had five other patients after me. Not once did she make me feel like just another chart to check off and see on my way. She was thorough, attentive and just so gracious. I loved her immediately. During my exam she found a lump in my breast. She told me not to worry, but that we'd get it checked out. And there, the wait began. The next six days were a rollercoaster of emotions. From wavering peace, to debilitating agony, breaking joy, and overwhelming fear. I told myself it was nothing but deep down I couldn't be so sure. My grandma died from breast cancer. And that alone was enough to upend me. The wait continued. October 3rd came with an ultrasound and the words, we can't be sure it's nothing until you have a biopsy. More waiting. Seven days later, the biospy. I had told our closest friends and family to pray that the Lord would surround me with an overwhelming sense of peace. And as I laid in the chair and they prepped everything to begin, I felt it - the most peace I had felt in the last three weeks. That's the Lord, friends. Tears streamed down my face the whole time - not out of pain, but out of sincere gratitude that the Lord hears our prayers. The great news is that the tumor is benign!! This wait has sharpened my trust, deepened my reliance, and been a greater testament to God's faithfulness. He's for us and hears us! I believe that to be true, again!
