I am excited to the point that I can hardly contain myself as I sit down this afternoon to write. I can think of nothing other than this weekend’s exciting events to write about at this very moment.
What exciting happenings, you ask?
One of my best friends, my sisters, got engaged this weekend!
Why am I so excited about this, you say?
Geez…. you are full of questions, aren’t you?😉
I am excited because I can remember every conversation about the days we will both say yes. I remember the look on his face when he looked at her the very first time I met him, and they weren’t even dating. I remember all of the words spoken over her in church services. I remember praying with her and crying with her because we knew the answer to her prayers and dreams was in front of her.
This post isn’t for any deep theological or uplifting thoughts and words, but instead, this post is to say congratulations to my friend. I so look forward to watching this journey begin and feel honored to have watched you grow so much in the past year.
This post is for you, Sis. Today I celebrate God’s promises with you and rejoice with you. Know that in everyday things you exude the grace and compassion I dream to attain. You are gorgeous inside and out. You have a passion for serving, and your heart is always after the Father’s. You are living your dream here and now and you are so worth it all. Soak in these moments and please, do not forget to enjoy a bowl of cereal with some beef jerky.
