It's been a good few months. We've been meeting with a young couple for pre-engagement counseling. It's been fun to talk to them about what we've learned in 20 years of marriage. I love seeing them sit really close to each other on the couch, hold hands and look lovingly into each others eyes as they talk to and about each other and their desire to have a good marriage that will honor and glorify God. They are hungry to learn and have devoured a book we gave them about marriage.
With so many broken homes and marriage on the "down-swing" it is so refreshing and hopeful to see the future in this young couple.
They just stopped by earlier this evening to announce their engagement!! She's sporting a ring that was his grandmother's. They seem so very happy! We are thrilled for them! Yep, it's definitely a good thing!
(Oh, and they brought us home-made fudge!)
