“For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord; I sing for joy at what your hands have done”
The observant reader may notice that this is the first post I have ever made to our family blog. I have elected to start now because something has come about that is so important to me that I simply can’t contain it.
The Lord has been clearly leading me by His Word, His Spirit, and the guidance and counsel of parents which I value tremendously, to the point where I could, in all confidence, approach Mr Taylor to ask for something inestimably valuable – his permission to court his daughter, Samantha Marie Taylor. It is with tremendous joy that I can say that both of Samantha’s parents, as well as my own, have accorded their full blessing on this relationship. To my intense delight, Samantha herself has wholeheartedly agreed to court me – an honour for which I can scarcely count myself worthy. I am brought to my knees in gratefulness to God that He would bring such a rich blessing from Heaven down upon me, due to no merit of my own.
A thousand words would not suffice for me to describe this joy of mine over this turn of events! However, since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will let you in on a bit of it. 🙂
And this is my favourite of the bunch 🙂
I thank God for you, Samantha, every day. May this relationship bring glory to God and cause us to be drawn closer to Him!
