God is so Good

My handsome Fiancé:) and I
(This picture was taken around a week before we became engaged).

"I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together."

~Psalm 34:1-3

This love that God has given

"Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things." ~Psalm 72:18

(this picture doesn't do my beautiful engagement ring justice:)

fter a courtship lasting around five and a half months, (most of it being long distance as we live more than 2000 miles apart; the phone and email were put to good use:) the most amazing, and wonderful man named Graham asked me to marry him:):):) and I said "yes". That was one month ago today, and my heart is still filled with thanksgiving and praise to the Lord for His leading and great goodness in bringing Graham and I together. I can't believe how blessed I am, and yes, I am very excited and happy:).

Thy Word

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." ~2 Timothy 3:16-17

Thy Word is like a garden Lord
With flowers bright and fair;
And everyone who seeks may pluck
A lovely cluster there.
Thy Word is like a deep deep mine;
And jewels rich and rare
Are hidden in the mighty depths
For every searcher there.

Thy Word is like a starry host,
A thousand rays of light
Are seen to guide the traveler,
And make his pathway bright.
Thy Word is like an armory,
Where soldiers may repair,
And find for life's long battle-day
All needful weapons there.

Oh, may I love Thy precious Word;
May I explore the mine;
May I it's fragrant flowers glean;
May light upon me shine.
Oh, may I find my armor there;
Thy Word my trusty sword,
I'll learn to fight with every foe
The battle of the Lord.
