Something Exciting

Well, two blogs in and something exciting DID happen! I have a fiance! And he is WONDERFUL! I got engaged on December 29th in Chicago! Best. Day. Ever. It is so amazing how God works, how he DOES hear every cry of your heart, every prayer, every hope. After years of praying, God (finally) brought me the man I will spend the rest of my life with. :)
I always used to say that my ideal love story would be that I would have a great guy friend who I can totally by myself around. We don't like each other at first but are just really good friends so there is no 'trying to impress each other'. That way we can really get to know the 'real' person. Then... one day we would just suddenly look at each other differently and realize how great we'd be together. Ha well I never thought that would be my story but God is funny.
After doing K-life with Kent for a couple years, watching him as a leader, and getting to know him as a friend, God put him on my heart and showed me that he is the kind of man I want to marry. This past May, we found out both of us were praying a lot about each other, seeking God's will and wisdom if we should date. June 4th, he asked me out! Our first date was so easy since we knew each other so well, and we started off our relationship already knowing the Lord had brought us together. After 6 months, we both felt ready to commit our lives to each other and I fully believe we can be a better team for the Lord together than we can on our own. This was my prayer all along! He is such a wonderful godly man and I feel so honored and blessed. The next four months will be CRAZY! I will keep you posted! Here is the engagement story!
