2 years ago Gavin asked me to be the happiest girl in the world by being his wife. It was on the heels of a short 2 month dating relationship which included me having mono for a month of that. It was a special and fun day and was a complete surprise. Life has continued to get better and more complex but Gavin continues to fulfill every promise he made that day. He fill my life with laughter, joy, and I am confident and comfortable in his love. He points me to the Lord and treasures my heart. Here is what he said that day and some if the great friends who helped us celebrate at our engagement party.
I love you. You are a tremendous blessing in my life. Through you the Lord has allowed me to catch a glimpse of understanding of who God is and what His sovereignty really means. There is no other woman I have ever loved and there will never be any other. If I achieve nothing else in this life it is my prayer that I would be able to show you daily that I love you, and to point you to the one source of that love. Christ has all of me and because you are in Him you have all of me. I want to be there through all of your greatest triumphs and to hold you during your most difficult times. You are an incredible woman and I am so happy that I have been able to be even a part of your life. It would be my greatest Joy and most humbling blessing to pursue you for the rest of my life. I love you with all that I have. Will you be my bride?
My response: it would be my delight. 🙂
