Engaged!!

June 29, 2009

"...the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13:13

(And I know I keep saying this, but there will be more details, the story, and lots of pictures coming soon -- just wait 'till you see the ring!! [grin] I am greatly looking forward to taking the time to jot down the story of what GOD has done and sharing it with you all, as well as the amazingness of my man, Dan. But for now you'll have to be satisified with this quick post -- and knowing that I am heels over head in love!)

Just so you know, head over heels sounds much better than heels over head. At least to me it sounds more comfortable (and modest)! :)

Congratulations Bethany [and Dan!] I'm SO EXCITED for both of you...this is thrilling news. You both look so very happy and blessed, and it has been neat to see God's leading in both of your lives. Thank you for your example you are setting before many people. May you remain faithful to Jesus Christ! I cannot wait to see more pictures, hear the story and hear of wedding plans. I'm on the edge of my seat with anticipation.

I love you Bethany. You are such a blessing. And btw, your shirt is really cute you wore for the pictures. And...I'd be curious to know...who took your engagement pictures? Would it happen to be one of your sisters?

Love you!...and talk soon =)

Bethany, I have no idea if you will remember me I commented on your blog quite a bit when I first started blogging.

And through the past two years my life has gotten more busy and I haven't been able to "Visit" as many blogs as I would like.

So when I saw your name listed on another blog I was on I thought "Oh, I should go on Bethany." And lo and behold I go on yours and find out you are engaged!!!

I searched your other posts and catched up on everything I have missed!!
Congrats!!
Ginger~

Congratulations, Bethany! I've been following your blog for awhile now (not sure how I found you...probably following random links :) and have so enjoyed your obvious love for the Lord and your family and your lovely pictures. I "knew" your family first through "The King's Daughter" Magazine...a long time ago! I remember enjoying the "A Day with My Family" one of your sisters wrote there, and admiring your beautiful family! And now God has blessed you to begin your own!! Many blessings...I have prayed for your and your sisters. I wish I could know you in person...so glad there is heaven for that. :) Oh, we are birthday buddies, too: happy birthday a day late! In Christ, Rachel from Kansas
