And then she got engaged

9:21 AM

OH MY GOODNESS! Has it seriously been almost a month since I posted here? Yeah, my internet has been giving me fits and then...

See those happy faces? That is them right after my sister said yes! 

Yes, that is the ring. Isn't it pretty? Tim did such a great job at picking it out. It has both their names on it.

On the Monday after Easter, Tim took Rose to a park. They went to her favorite spot, a rock outcropping over the water. When it was time to leave he asked her:
"Do you trust me?"
"Yes," Rose said.
Tim led her to the very edge of the rock and had her face the water with her eyes closed. Rose heard a soft noise behind her.
"You can open your eyes now."
She turned around and he was down on one knee, a ring in hand.
"Will you marry me?"

We heard the excited scream at our house... Okay, not really. She was an hour away. My sister, who had the courage to stand up for her convictions, struggled with singleness, finally has found the man of her dreams.

  6. I'm new on here.

    Sarah my heart hurts right now. My Best Friend is my sister too. Although we are a tad young for actual marriage right now, the reality of the probability that some day we won't sleep in the same room, talk until 1 am, share everything and read to each other, it hurts my heart.

    What else? One of my best friends from church got engaged the Saturday before Easter to my other best friend church. I was so excited when they told me I squealed, but the reality hit me. My friends are getting married, and I'm almost at that place my self. Life is changing so quickly, and I'm scared.

    I'm learning to trust God though. He is my Rock and my Fortress. He is the only thing in this life that doesn't change, and I let Him take my life.

    Anyway, big congratulations to her! I'm a new subscriber, :)
    I want to see pictures of the wedding. :)
