OH yeah, I remember! Matt and I got engaged!
It all went down on February 22nd. He took me hiking at Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve and when we got to the scenic overlook, he sat me down and popped the question!I feel extremely blessed and thankful to have this man in my life. I truly believe that God brought us together because the way it happened is way too significant to have been chance.
What started out as two people “trying” to be a community group together has grown into a game-changer love that has redefined who I am as a person, how I love others, and most importantly, how I love God my Father. I know who I am and who I want to be when I’m with him.I thank my Redeemer Jesus every day for leading me into such a life-affirming and life-altering relationship. I feel like I only know how to love Matt because I am loved by Christ Jesus (1 John 4:19).
Not only am I looking forward to becoming Matt’s wife, I am excited to walk through this life together as partners. I can’t wait to be his helpmate and biggest supporter. I can’t wait to go on more adventures together, discovering the beauty of this world and all the people in it. I look forward to a future family with him. But, ultimately, I look forward to striving together toward Christ with every step we take as a married couple — helping each other become more like Him who we hold as our perfect creator and example.
August 9th couldn’t come any sooner!
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” ~ Hebrews 12: 1-2
