11 months engaged
Updated: May 6, 2021
This is the end of one chapter and the beginning of another! We are in our final weeks of engagement and Nathan and I have gotten the keys for our townhouse and have begun moving our livelihood in. It feels weird to look at empty rooms and barren walls yet to be filled, but I cannot wait to call this small little place home. Waking up every morning, I look around my room and I feel such joy and also sadness at leaving the home I have grown up in and my family therein, but also incredibly ready and eager to begin my new life with Nathan.
The road we are on is one that we do not travel alone. No matter the hills and valleys, I have seen the ways that the Lord has provided for us, even when it didn’t seem like there would be a way through all of the challenges of living through a pandemic, being young, and being people of faith just trying to find our way in a big and often daunting world.
Please continue to pray for us. We will need it for the rest of our lives! I know that our engagement may be ending and our marriage beginning, but there is still so much for us to learn and grow in. There are many places yet to be humbled and crosses still to bear and triumphs yet to be had. I am thankful that I have the love of my life beside me and my God to reign supreme in all circumstances. The aisle I walk down does not end at the wedding, but continues from then on to heaven.
Peace be with all of you now and forever.
