Hold onto Your Hats!

It's a simple story.

One of boy meets girl, girl meets boy.
They fall in love.
Head over heels, crazy in love.

He asked...Will you marry me?

She I answered...YES!

So now they we are engaged.

I still find myself speechless.
Or dissolving into deliriously happy giggles.

Two words have been repeated:
1.) Really?  
2.) WOW!

But yes, we are really engaged.
And yes, it's a big happy WOW!

Oh Merrill- I saw this on FB - and cried. I read this - and cried. There is something so amazing when one waits and waits and God delivers better nd bigger than our little minds could imagine.

I pray that you and Brian will find the amazing love and friendship that can sustain you through a lifetime or two- that God would RICHLY bless your union and that He would shine His face upon you!

We love you so much and I just can not find the words to express how very, very happy we are for you & G.
