CELEBRATE!




By now almost everyone knows that Jared and I are engaged to be married in July. But i think it's only fair to tell everyone else that i didn't get a propper chance to tell. And so i can put pretty pictures up and smile really big while i write. :D

It was a beautiful night with snow falling gently as we walked through the woods to our "log" where we like to sit and pray. I don't have a good picture of that spott but if i did i would definately post it. It's beautiful. There was a prayer and then a proposal. He got on his knee in the snow and all. I, of course, said yes and cried and laughed and wanted to tell the entire world of my joy. Then we prayed again, thanking God for all the wonderful things that He's done for us, both in our lives before we were together and then for how he worked to bring us to this point. It's not of us but of Him and that's the goal of our relationship, engagement and eventually our marriage. We want to glorify and serve God, Period. Thats why God brought us together and why he's brought us to this point and we are so greatful and looking forward to where He will continue to work in us as individuals and as a couple. God is good and He is faithful to hear our prayers.

Here are a few pics for you to look at... I just put them up because it reminds me of where i've been and where God has brought us.

    CONGRATS, my friend Christina!! When a lovely Christian person is engaged, it's beautiful. When TWO admirable, beautiful Christian people are engaged, it's awesome - all the work God has done in each of you to this point He can now mold TOGETHER for His use. We are thrilled for you!! Thanks for describing the event - you need to post a photo of your log sometime on your blog. :) -REV p.s Are you going to sing at your wedding? I've always told you that you have a lovely voice!!!

  2. Rev-
    Well i don't think i'll be singing at the wedding we'll leave the beautiful music up to someone else for the day. I think i would just cry right through it anyway. But thank you, we are excited and we know that it is not something to be taken lightly but to be respected and honored and so greatful for. We look forward to the opportunities for ministry together in the future.
    -Christina

    You? You'd never cry at anything! We'll do our best to ensure beautiful music surrounds your ceremony. One of those P & W hymn arrangements would be a very nice congregational or solo piece, in my opinion...but I do only as asked!

  4. Not that engagement isn't worth celebrating for a long time, but any thoughts of doing a new post sometime?!?!

  5. Congrats! I did hear about this a while ago (having family still at church helps me stay updated! :)
    I am so happy for you and Jared- I know God will bless your faithfulness. As you wait for your *day*, continue to keep your eyes on Him!
