Engagement Announcement!!!!!

Last night Mackenzie asked Brittany to be his bride and she said yes!
Eric and I are so thrilled! (turn your speakers up and listen to the happy song! ~Chapel of Love)
They have known each other for two years and have been dating for over a year.
They seem to be doing everything right! They have a great and loving relationship and they are crazy for one another!
They communicate so well and they agree on the big subjects such as religion, money, child rearing and politics. Brittany's family and our entire family are happy about this news and support it!
They have gone through all the seasons and holidays together, and they have lots of fun!
The most important thing is they have the Lord as the center of their relationship!
Brittany has become a part of our family! She is becoming the daughter I never had! She is the girl I have been praying for for many years! I started praying for my son's future wives when Mackenzie was about 9 years old. God has honored my prayers and answered them ten fold!
We are so happy and so excited for them and with them! It looks like there could be wedding bells in November!!!

"And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help mate for him. " Genesis 2:18

Happily, thankfully, joyfully, Sharon

Congratulations to all of you! This upcoming wedding event will be a family affair! Enjoy every moment. Our daughter was married two years ago and we still smile as we remember each detail of the planning, the organizing, the dreaming and the reality. The reality was better than we had even dreamed.

I am happy for your son and future daughter in law...they look so cute together! She is simply lovely!


And should you have any wedding questions--don't hesitate to email....I still have the wedding planning file on my computer! Check out their wedding tools were very helpful...especially the Guest List planner.

Have fun.


Velvia said...

Hi Sharon!
Congratulations!!! They are such a beautiful couple both inside and out! You are so blessed and so are they, you will be the greatest mother-in-law ever!

I prayed for my kids future spouses from the time they were very young also, and God answered my prayers more wonderfully than I could ever have imagined. (I'm still praying for my youngest, she's only 11).

I look forward to hearing all about the wedding plans, etc. in the coming weeks and months. Have a blessed Sunday!
Love, Velvia

Congratulations!How exciting. Stand by for the ride of your life.

BTW, I recommend setting the ground rules. The next son needs to wait at least a year before he decides to get married. LOL. Funny, yes, but I am serious.
