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.
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.”
