My Sister's Getting Married!

Yes, that's right! On Saturday, my sister Miriam got engaged to marry a wonderful man! John came with a delightful surprise for her, showing up when she least expected it! It was fun to be in on the plans. =) We knew he was coming this coming weekend, so when he called to ask if he could stay at our house this last weekend, we were all excited! He planned a most romantic proposal as well! Rather then reading my take on what happened, just go over to Miriam's blog where she's telling the story. (Click here to see pictures, here for part 1, and here for part 2 of the story!)

Miriam, you've been a wonderful sister and example to me, and I'm so happy for you! John, you'll make a wonderful brother-in-law and I couldn't be more excited that you and Miriam are getting married! You both have been very encouraging examples of waiting and purity and following God as your relationship unfolds. I'm thrilled!!

It will be hard to see my sister move away - John doesn't exactly live close by, living in Ohio, but I'm so happy that she'll be married! I won't be loosing a sister; I'll be gaining a brother! And a kind, generous, amazing brother at that! =)

It's been fun to watch Miriam sparkle and glow. She's so happy and bubbling with joy! Watching her in love is so much fun. ;-)

Now there's a wedding that will be tons of fun to help plan! I may even get to do some of the sewing! What could be more wonderful? :-)

(Can you tell from the use of smilies and exclamation points that I'm slightly excited?!)
