We are getting MARRIED!!!!



NICK PROPOSED TO ME ON MAY 16TH 2008... I SAID YES OF COURSE!
I HAD STEPPED OF THE PLANE MANY TIMES IMAGINING HIM WAITING FOR ME ON ONE KNEE.... AND IT REALLY HAPPENED! I LANDED IN DALLAS. HE SURPRISED ME BY BEING THERE. ON ONE KNEE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BAGGAGE CLAIM AREA. IT WAS PERFECT! I WAS VERY SURPRISED! IT WAS THE VERY BEST DAY EVER! WE HAD A ROMANTIC LUNCH. I JUST DIDN'T WANT IT TO END!!! HE LOOKED AT ME DIFFERENT FROM THAT DAY ON. I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN EVEN EXPLAIN IT... MAYBE AS IF HE WANTED TO SPEND ETERNITY WITH ME, AND WAS GOING TO! NICK IS THE MOST AMAZING MAN I HAVE EVER MET. I KNEW THAT REALLY WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER! THE OLDER I GOT TO MORE AMAZED BY HIM THAN I ALREADY WAS. WHEN I WAS 18 I TOLD MY MOM, I'M GOING TO MARRY A GUY LIKE NICK! EVEN BETTER I AM MARRYING HIM. I CANNOT WAIT TO LOOK INTO THOSE EYES OF HIS EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE. I AM A BETTER WOMAN JUST KNOWING NICK. EVERYDAY THAT I AM AROUND HIM HE MAKES ME BETTER THAN I WAS THE DAY BEFORE. HE IS A SPIRITUAL GIANT. HE CARRIES AROUND WITH HIM THE JOY OF THE LORD LIKE NO OTHER. ANYONE THAT HAS EVER BEEN AROUND HIM KNOWS THAT. HE IS THE FUNNIEST PERSON ALIVE. HE MAKES ME LAUGH ABOUT EVERY 30 SECONDS, AND NEVER AT THE MERCY OF ANOTHER PERSON. HE IS ALWAYS UPLIFTING, ENCOURAGING, AND WISE. HE IS INCREDIBLY INTELLIGENT. HE TEACHES ME SOMETHING DAILY. ABOVE ALL HE HAS TEN TIMES THE COMPASSION OF ANYONE I HAVE EVER KNOWN. HE LOVES EVERYONE AS CHRIST DOES. HE DEMONSTRATES MERCY AND CHARITY TO EVERYONE, EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE WRONGED HIM SOMEHOW. HE HAS SO MANY SPIRITUAL GIFTS THAT BLESS MY NEEDS DAILY, AND I HOPE MINE DO THE SAME. HE IS ALWAYS MAKING AN EFFORT TO BE THERE FOR ME ALWAYS. HE IS COMPLETELY UN SELFISH. I COULD GO ON FOREVER!
NICK IS AMAZING. I AM VERY THANKFUL THAT I GET TO SPEND FOREVER WITH HIM. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE FUTURE. I KNOW THAT OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN HAS BIG PLANS FOR US. WE HAVE LOTS OF WORK TO DO. TWO IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN ONE. WE EACH HAVE FOUND OUR PARTNER. ITS GOING TO BE SO MUCH FUN SERVING THE LORD TOGETHER. SERVING EACH OTHER EVERYDAY AND EVERY WAY.

I FOUND THIS POEM EARLIER WHEN I WAS READING A TALK FROM AN OLD CONFERENCE.

Because you come to me with naught save love,
And hold my hand and lift mine eyes above,
A wider world of hope and joy I see,
Because you come to me.


Because you speak to me in accents sweet,
I find the roses waking round my feet,
And I am led through tears and joy to thee,
Because you speak to me.


Because God made thee mine, I’ll cherish thee
Through light and darkness, through all time to be,
And pray His love may make our love divine,
Because God made thee mine. 20



I HAD ALREADY ASKED HIM TO MARRY ME A HUNDRED TIMES! AND HE ALWAYS KINDLY ANSWERED, YES, SOMEDAY!!! WELL THE DAY HAS SURELY COME. WE WILL BE MARRIED ON SEPTEMBER 30TH, 2008.
