My heart is overflowing...

"Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!"
2 Corinthians 9:15

God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame.

...and I just can't stop smiling...

Bethany,
I'm so excited for you!! I can totally relate. ;) It is so thrilling to watch the Lord delight to give good gifts to His children!! (Someone said this about Nathan and me and it really blessed me. In turn, I want to say it to you. "You and Dan look like you go together!") Cherish these sweet moments!

Oh Bethany! I am a constant follower of your blog, and have grown to really like you! Your sweet spirit shines forth in all your beautiful photography and the lovely verses you post. Congratulations on what God is doing in your life- this is such a surprise! I had no idea! Please tell us more details later! (On your blog or on your familys is fine!)
Oh! And you look radiantly happy, Bethany! And you two look so good together. Praise the Lord!

Holly said...

So happy for you! Remember, we tend to treat our closest loved ones like we would NEVER treat an acquaintance. Don't ever do that - and don't ever take this feeling you have for each other for granted. It's worked for us! :)

Esther said...

How special it was for me to watch this scene unfold this past weekend! I must admit that in the first moments I saw you on Thursday, I knew something was up. :)
You just couldn't help yourself, I know. You were simply radiant. Being cherished by a Godly man does that. I know you've watched it happen to other girls, and now it's happening to you. God is so good.

Blessings to you, dear sister!

Katie said...

Whoa! Congratulations!!! Have you set a date? You know, it's going to be hard for a photographer to hire another photographer for her own wedding! HAHA!

David Kent said...

Congratulations!

If the wedding is in the winter, you can have your honeymoon in Fairbanks, Alaska watching the Aurora Borealis while it's 50 degrees below zero! (Somehow I don't think you'll think that's a good idea).

God's blessings on the both of you,

That picture brings back all the memories and heart-overflowing emotions I had a year ago. Discovering the love of your life is the best thing EVER.... and the amazing thing is, it just keeps getting better no matter what. As time goes on, life settles in, periods of intense loneliness (which I hope you won't have to experience), and even facing incredible sorrow and loss.... Cloud 9 gets a little rocky, but you never fall off.... I'm so happy for you, Bethany.

awww, Bethany! I saw this and was so very excited. Then my Internet was acting up and the picture wouldn't load, so I had to be really patient. Thankfully your family's blog went ahead and loaded up the pic.... So BLESSINGS to you & Dan and may God guide each of you into His glorious plan. That quote is really sweet, and I'm sure you can attest that it is so true! Love you much!
