"Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins." 1 Peter 4:8

Isn't that a beautiful verse? It was printed on the wedding invitation of Teri Nelson and John Ellis, who served a meal at their wedding at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, and then at 7:30 p.m. the guests witnessed their marriage ceremony. That was followed by Teri's father, Darwin, playing his popular deejay music for dancing and visiting. Best wishes to the young couple who live and work in Eads.
