Something as simple as a rock is spreading smiles. People all across Belton are having fun, getting outside, enjoying time with family and friends, and spreading a little joy. Rocks are being painted and hidden around the Belton area to brighten people’s day. It is bringing our community together in such a fun unique way.

This community craze began when the Bostick family was on a trip in Washington when Chance found a painted rock while on a hike with his family with “Keep or Re-hide Me” written on the back. The family brought the painted rock tradition home to Belton, Texas.

The process is simple: Find, Paint, Hide! Once you find a decorated rock, you are encouraged to paint a new one and hide it, and then drop a hint on the Facebook group page as to where they are hidden. A clue such as “you can find this one hiding where you would have a great spot to view the parade” along with a photo.

The rocks reflect the opinions of the individual artists. Many rocks have quotes, motivational words, and Bible verses. People are displaying our Belton Spirit and Texas Pride. These rocks are mini-masterpieces with some amazing art work on them.

Instructions are written on the back of the art work so that people know what to do when the rocks are found such as “Post your find at Belton Rocks on Facebook, Rehide Me, or #BeltonRocks” depending on the size of the rock.

Pictures are posted on the Facebook Group @BeltonRocks with clues of where to find the painted rocks or of smiling faces with their newly found treasures. The painter enjoys the posts because they like to see what has happened to their creation.

Both the young and the young at heart are enjoying Belton Rocks. Local nursing home residents are enjoying the love of rock painting to sprinkle bits of happy to brighten up the world because it brings joy to the heart when you hear a child in the park exclaim, “I found one!”

Quilt rocks may also be found where you divide the rock into sections. You paint one section, and each time its found, they paint their own design in another section and then re-hide.

Mod Podging with napkins onto rocks has become really popular. First, cut out a design from the napkin that would fit best on the rock.  Use a brush to paint a thin coat of Mod Podge on the rock and press the napkin design carefully onto the rock and smooth out the wrinkles, and then add another coat of Mod Podge to the rock.

We even have some traveling rocks. After the rocks are painted, some are taking the rocks on trips and leaving the unexpected surprise along the traveler’s route. Belton Rocks is starting a map to see how far our rocks have gone and relay some of the stories of their journeys. Rocks have traveled from sea to shining sea, from California to Florida.  They have even traveled as far as Cancun, Mexico.

Searching for just the perfect stone is part of the fun. Smooth, rounded stones work the best. Once you have found your canvas, rinse the rock to remove dirt and let it dry. You may want to draw your design onto the rock. Acrylic paint works well. For fine detail, a toothpick could be used as a paintbrush. Once you have finished painting the rock, seal the design with Mod Podge to make sure your art lasts for a long time. For more information on rock painting, That Art Place in Belton is hosting a free painted rock workshop on June 3rd from 10am – 3pm.

Our First Wedding at Tirzah

Logo-H

Jake Roehl and Whitney Joeckel are the very first couple to celebrate their dream day, their wedding, in this beautiful historic building, Tirzah!

Jake and Whitney’s wedding was a very meaningful and intimate occasion. Having a small wedding let them incorporate special moments that would be difficult to include in a large wedding. For instance, as their guests entered, each one found a card on a prayer board with a prayer inside that was written just for them.

They even wrote a prayer for me and Cory that we treasure.

For the couple’s Guest Book, the guests signed a large wooden letter R with messages of love.

The couple chose not to have a first look prior to the wedding.  Jake arrived first at the venue, and he went into a separate area so that Whitney could go upstairs for the final touches of getting dressed for their wedding.

As the Bride was alone with her father before they walked down the aisle, they said a beautiful prayer together. They walked in to the song called, “Oceans … When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace. For I am Yours, and You are mine!”

Jake sees Whitney for the first time in her wedding dress as she is walking down the aisle.  This is a look of a man in love!

Both the Bride and Groom wrote their own vows to each other. At the beginning, the Bride seemed a little nervous, but as the Groom was saying his vows to her, you could see her nervousness fade away and be replaced with a radiant smile.

Two signature stand-out moments in this intimate ceremony included a Blessing of the Rings and a Feet Washing Ceremony. Their wedding rings were passed around the room on a beautiful small dish that read, “Amore.”  Each guest prayed a blessing over the rings, and then they passed the rings to the next guest.

In the Feet Washing Ceremony, Whitney washed Jake’s feet. The beautiful symbolism of the act depicted their love and commitment; it demonstrated a humility of the heart, a sign of being humble, thoughtful, and willing to serve just as Jesus encouraged us to follow in his example.  In John 13:1-17, Jesus washed the disciples feet and instructed that we should do the same.

Another personal touch was that they had a display to meet the “Maids and Men.” Each had four attendants, and then Jake also had a Best Girl, his daughter Paige. Letters were written about each of the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen with a story introducing each one.  The letter mentioned how they met and why it was important for them to stand by the Bride and Groom on their wedding day, and then some trivia that the guests might ask them to start a conversation.  It was a very nice way for the guests to learn about the wedding party.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds took pictures in the courtyard with the rustic rock wall as a backdrop.  The photographers for the event were Jade and Kyle Pierce.

Since Jake proposed to Whitney on the beach, the reception design incorporated candle-lit lanterns with greenery and seashells. The colors of the wedding were navy with a hint of blush.

The florist for the event was Revyn Marburger with Ivory Bell Floral and Boutique. She provided the floral arrangements as well as the lanterns.

Jake and Whitney had a Sweetheart table at the head of the Grand Room.

The Bride and Groom chose to have a dessert table with brownies that the Groom’s daughter had made and a small white cake; however, for their cutting of the cake, they cut the cutest cupcake with a little red heart on the top.

After toasts and eating a delicious Bar-B-Que meal from Miller’s Smokehouse, they danced the night away under the stars. The first song that the couple danced to was “Who I Am With You” by Chris Young.

When it was time for the Bouquet and Garter Toss, Jake’s daughter Paige caught the bouquet.

The couple said their goodbyes and had their final farewell. They laughingly entered the Grand Room, and they stopped to tell me bye and described their day as “magical!” ❤

For their getaway, they left in Jake’s jeep, and Jake lifted Whitney up to help her inside. They honeymooned in San Antonio, the City of Romance, and stayed at Hotel Emma on the Riverwalk at Pearl. Hotel Emma is a historical hotel that was once a 19th century Brewhouse.  The hotel was named in honor of Emma Koehler, who ran the brewery during Prohibition after her husband died.  This riverfront hotel has a genuine cultural flavor filled with a warm social experience.

Jingle Bells and Wedding Bells

Logo-H

Christmas is the most special holiday of the year as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. When family and friends are gathered for the holiday, one begins to reflect on life, people who are meaningful, and the future. The festive season is filled with holiday magic, fond family traditions, and love. The cozy atmosphere with mistletoe, glistening lights, and roaring fires translates to a romantic time of year. These various aspects have made Christmastime the most popular time to get engaged.  Christmas Eve is the most popular, followed by Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and Valentine’s Day.

Christmastime Love

Ellen Lamont, assistant professor of sociology at Appalachian State University, states “The holidays are a time of creating a sense of family, creating rituals and family meaning. You’re literally bringing family together during the holidays, but with the marriage proposal, you’re symbolically creating this new family.”

If you are wanting to create a December to remember with a magical merry marriage proposal, the location of where you propose will be the main detail everyone will ask so give the destination extra consideration. The site could be the place of your first date or kiss or a scenic area decorated with romantic, twinkling Christmas lights to create a magical backdrop.

Christmastime Proposal

Capturing that special moment is important so you can reminisce together as you are looking over your proposal photos. When the proposal is outside, the photographer can remain hidden for the surprise; however, you would have to plan for the unpredictable weather and staying warm. An experienced photographer is sure to get the perfect shot.

Christmastime Proposal Merry Me Marry Me

Proposing is a special, intimate, private, and pivotal moment. As you get down on one knee, emotions will be overflowing as you focus on getting your words out and hearing her say “yes.” Consider your future bride’s sentiments when planning the proposal; for example, having a crowd present might make her feel awkward, but on the other hand, she may love it.

Christmastime Proposal with Christmas Winter Snow

Traditions of family and love create fond memories that will never be forgotten! Traditions lend a certain magic in our lives and evoke precious memories that lead to good feelings. Traditions shape families, and the history may be passed on through generations. As you propose, consider incorporating an event that will be the start of your new family’s tradition.
