Sharing in joy

Today it was our privilege to receive a visit from two young friends. They came to share the news of their engagement and upcoming marriage, and to talk to a couple of old folks about marriage. It is made sweeter because they met at our house, both beloved by us. What a joy to share in their excitement!

We are rejoicing with you, Rebecca and Quinn! May God bless the new family you are forming, and may you always glorify Him!

(And please note that Rebecca's engagement ring is not the lovely blue game piece pictured. It is a lovely ring that once belonged to Quinn's great-grandmother, and is now being resized for its new owner!)

Very cool. I always wonder about those early introductions and how they might turn out down the line . . . So confess, did you intend some matchmaking here?

Cindy- Not at all! As a matter of fact, we hd forgotten they met at our house, and were rather surprised to find out that they were "an item". But it is very sweet, and such fun to share in the joy!

Thanks for sharing your time and so much of the wisdom God's granted you over the years about marriage and engagement! We had such a nice visit with you and Dave.
