Dreams Do Come True

What a weekend!!!!  It started on Thursday night with a surprise at my front door.  Mom was coming in late to be delivered from the airport by a friend.  A knock on the door reveals my bestie, Pam when I open it.  Didn’t see that coming.  As we quickly said our hellos and I got over my shock.  We were typical girls and began catching up.  It was a late night but well worth it.  The next morning we headed off for happy hour complete with two cocktails of ‘Jenn’s Juice’.  Fortunately for me I get a great Benedryl induced nap with every happy hour.

Saturday afternoon we girls headed to Oklahoma for a visit.  John had made plans for us to visit with friends in the evening, I had no idea what was in store.  After we settled mom and Pam into where we were staying for the next couple days, John and I set off for dinner with friends at their home.  As we arrived we set off through the yard to the patio that overlooks the water where a private table was set with a candle lit dinner, a picture says a thousands words so here we go….




After dinner we headed to another favorite spot by the river where there was dessert with a very pretty present waiting…..



In that pretty box……

After I said “Yes”!!!!!…….

And we continue to live HIStory…….

“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God.  For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.”  —  Psalm 61:10

    I’m laying in bed giggling like a school girl. Not because of the engagement its self (props to John!!) but because of what that ring means and how you’ve come full circle in life, just like the ring 😉 love you so much and am so happy you’ve found your prince! Oh to laugh in joy at our starbucks dates from a year ago xoxoxo

  24. Sue Scrivner

    Jennifer, so excited for you. John kept us posted but to see the table and all the settings made it more real. The ring is absolutely gorgeous. I might add that it on a gorgeous lady. You do have your prince. He has his princess.
    So excited for you two.

    Hey Sistah,
    I just had the chance to read this. I am so happy for the two of you I cannot even put it into words. I am just reminded of some of the talks we used to have. God is sooooooo good!! It seems like it is better than anything you could have imagined.
    Blessing to you both and I can’t wait to see that “rock” in person 🙂
    Continuing to pray and knowing that God has it all worked out.
    Love you,
