Today is a glorious day because my daughter is getting married. Based on my security level, my conduct while here, and the time remaining of my sentence, I qualified for an un-escorted day furlough of up to 16 hours to be there. Unfortunately, it was not granted. This denial was personally devastating because there are few earthly joys that quite compare with walking my daughters down the aisle, believing that they made wise choices in the men they chose to marry.
Even so, I am grateful to be able to give my blessing to Lauren and Brandon and to share my hope and prayer that they experience all the joy, the love and the mutual fulfillment in their marriage that God desires for them.
