The church held a musical event last night. This is something that they do on the last sunday of the month. Different people from within the church are asked to sing and a couple of people are the moderators to lead the event. My girlfriend, Diana, was one of the moderators for the night. I had told her last month that I wanted to sing so about 45 minutes after the night started, it was my turn to sing.
I sang a song from my United Methodist Church days. It is not known by too many people, but my old church family truly loved this song. It is titled,
Lord, You Have Come To The Lakeshore
My girlfriend and her friend were sitting on stage waiting for me to finish my song. When the song was over I went over to her and gave her a hug. She was happy for me (not sure if she was happy I was finally done singing or that I had done a good job!!) After I gave her a hug she walked up to the podium and I started to walk away. When she had passed me and had her back to me, I then reached into my pocket, stood right behind her and got down on one knee!
The audience, as if on que, all gasped and stood up. Diana turned around and saw me on my knee and just started crying. I proposed to her in front of her church family and she said...
It was a great evening. Everyone was so happy for us and before I knew it, they had the whole wedding all planned out for us! Which is good for me, since, I am terrible when it comes to color-coordinating things! We have set a date for our wedding.
Sept 27, 2008!
I love Diana very much and am looking forward to a long life spent together with her in service to the Lord! I would appreciate your prayers for our relationship. I thank everyone of you for your devotion to the Lord, even to those who do not agree with me, I appreciate the fact that you do love God and are serving Him in a way that you feel is best. May God bless each one of you today. I know I have been blessed with a beautiful woman of God.
