Four days ago on the 22nd of December, Mr J and I took another step in our lives together. A step that will keep me smiling for days, months, years and forever. A step that shows commitment and gives excitement. A step in which we can’t wait to share with the world.
Mr J is no longer my boyfriend, he is my FIANCEE!
Yes, WE ARE ENGAGED!!
The proposal was perfect for us. I wouldn’t change a thing and I’m super excited for what God has in store for us.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. – 1 John 4:7
Yesterday Mr J and I bought a card for the wedded couple. After looking at a few. We loved and agreed with what it said:
When the Lord joins man and women, the two as one should be, yet in the home they share with Him – in faith, the two are three… He multiplies their blessings, their sadness He divides and for their different dreams and needs, He equallly provides… He adds to their fullfillment and takes away their care, and one in Him, their total life abounds with love to spare!
So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not seperate. ~Matthew 19:6
Today we shared a beautiful day with an amazing couple. The ceremony was gorgeous. American weddings tend to be bigger than Australian weddings, for example today there were 7 groomsman and 7 bridesmaids + 1 junior bridesmaid. The ceremony was a true celebration, with incredible and lovely decorations and joyful environement. God provided an incredbile day for the newly married couple today and we thank him for allowing us to be apart of it. The reception also allowed me to learn some American line dancing and Mr J and I met some more lovely people. We left the night with a bag of homemade cookies made by loved ones of the newly weds.
& here are a couple of my favourites of Mr J and I on the night…
