This is a post I've been waiting to write!
Our oldest son, Jon, proposed to his girlfriend, Rebecca, Saturday night and she said, "Of course!"

From the moment they are born, we have started praying for our children to be followers of Christ.  We have prayed this for their future spouses as well. 

We are so very thankful He has answered our prayers with Rebecca.  We could not have picked out such a perfect match for him!

We got to have dinner with them and her parents last night and not only are we gaining a daughter, but a whole other family with her mom and dad!  We love them and are already planning family vacations to the beach together!
Fun times ahead!

With a full and thankful heart.....


  1. So glad to read. I pray for my kids the same way. Praying for future spouses and their family. Congrats.

  2. Oh Dee, congratulations to you and the happy couple.
    Such wonderful news! Now you'll have someone to share all of those pink girlie things with!

  3. Congrats to your son and future DIL!! Thank you for recognizing praying for our kids is essential as well:)

  4. Congratulations to the happy couple (and to you)! When I got engaged, my future father-in-law told me that he and his wife had been praying for the girl their son would marry since he was a little boy. That meant a lot to me. Now I'm praying for my children's future spouses.

  5. yay! Congrats Dee! I bet you will be a fantastic Mother in Law! (I think that is the same engagement ring I have!) ;)

  6. WAHOOOOOO!!! Tell my boy that I am so happy for him!!
