An Important Event

I know that some of you have been looking forward to this post for some time, myself most certainly included. It was a about year ago that I posted about our courtship, and now Erica and I have some more exciting news…

our engagement (February 13th)!  And yes, we do have a date for the wedding: Sunday, September 1st, 2013.

David and Erica Erica and David

The past year has been a time of great blessing and joy as we have gotten to know each other better and I know that the next six months will also be a time of relationship growth, both toward each other and our Lord.  Our hope is that in this area, where a relationship like ours is virtually unheard of, the Lord would open people’s eyes to what He can do in people who are willing to work in His ways.  I pray that what we have gone through would be a blessing and example to those around us and cause them to desire a closer walk with Him first of all.

It has been a long wait, with yet more time to go, but as it says in Isaiah 40:31, “they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

    I have been blessed way beyond what I have ever deserved to be engaged to the best man in the world!!! (okay, maybe I am a little biased…:)

    These past 12 months, though not easy, have been a season of life that I will always look back on with joy and thankfulness!!! David and I have become closer than I ever dreamed possible and I am eagerly anticipating a lifetime ahead with this godly man, this priceless gift, that the Lord has so graciously given to me.

    Words fail me to express how thankful I am for my parents and for David’s parents and the key role they have played and continue to play in our relationship. Their guidance, their counsel and their prayers have been invaluable… and the prayers of our siblings have been priceless!!! Thank-you all SO MUCH… We wouldn’t be where we are today without you!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!

    Thank-you, David, for everything…for all that you are, for the blessing you have been to me during this past year…and for choosing me. I am so grateful for you!!! You are such a godly man, in SO many ways…Oh, that I might never take you for granted…

    I can’t wait until September 1st, when we will be joined together as one…EXCITING!!!

    With a heart overflowing with gratitude to my Saviour,
