I recently went to Justin's home church for the day. They were having a special series of Revival services.
Evangelist Paul Shwanke preached great sermons!
After service and a very yummy lunch Justin's parents treated the family and I to some ice cream!
Justin and I
The Ice cream shoppe is on a farm!
We also visited a park near the ice cream place.
We were checking it out as a potential wedding photo site. Justin here is discussing the finer points of posing.
I almost got it!! :)
Didn't this one come out sooo nice?
There is also this lovely covered bridge!
The rest of the day went very well!
I am happy to tell you all that Justin and I finally had the meeting with my parents and his!!! Soon we will be talking to my Pastor and then we can confirm the date we have chosen. (yes we have one picked out!!!)
We would greatly appreciate your prayers for us as we plan our wedding!!
We have been engaged for about 2 months now, and I am loving it. Not only do I have a very beautiful engagement ring, I have a very sweet and godly Fiance to go with it!!
It is nice to not be just the old "Boyfriend/Girlfriend" but to be Fiances. I like that word, it sounds so... sophisticated!! LOL
We knew at the outset that our courtship was headed toward marriage, but it is neat that other people realize it too! I'll never forget the gasp from the congregation when Pastor announced the engagement. :)
And planning a Wedding, whats that like??
I'll be glad when I don't have to plan any more!! LOL. We haven't done much other then gather ideas and check things out, but as exciting as planning is, I will still be happy when its over. (I'll be married obviously... that might help!!! LOL)
I can't help but think it is possible that within a little under a year's time I will be married. I'll miss my family, I'm practically second Mommy here.
My last fall here, kinda hard to believe.
My life will change drastically within a year!! I will have a husband, home and new ministries. It will be a grand adventure, no doubt about that!
I am thankful that we are engaged. Our relationship has grown even more special. I get to call his parents "Dad and Mom" already, that is so nice. Justin was a little shy about it but calls my parents " Dad and Mom" too now, and is not shy anymore.
I am in my twenties and I am wholly dedicated to serving my Lord Jesus since July 24,97.
I graduated from Bible College in May 2011 alongside my then Fiance...
Justin and I were married on
August 12, 2011 and I am enjoying being his wife!
