On Friday, one of our sitters, Courtney and her boo, Miles, got engaged!! This is a super exciting thing in our house :) We knew both of these love birds BEFORE they dated each other-- and we knew them when they were "just friends" aka really liked each other and flirted a lot but a little gun shy and afraid to pull the trigger after being hurt by previous relationships. (Chad and I know a lot of being "just friends"-- we tried to pull that one ourselves!) Then we watched as God brought them together, taught them A LOT, and then aligned them FOREVER!!! We are so excited to see what He has in store for their future, as well.
Chad and I have had the chance to serve on the mission field with both of them, and we left our most precious Max with Courtney when I went back to work when he was 6 weeks old. She walked with me as I learned to be a new mom, and really learned right along beside me. It is an honor for us to be a part of their lives, and we just plain live them.
So on Friday, after they got engaged, they had a party to celebrate, but we already had tickets to the Braves game (more to come on that later) so we dropped off some goodies to show our support beforehand.
That first pictures was the better one, but I really like Max's arm in the next one, so I just need to post it as well :)
Congratulations Miles and Courtney!! We love you all and are so proud of the way you've dated and sought to have Jesus at the center. We're praying for you over the next several (stressful) months as you prepare for marriage and plan your wedding, but even more so, we're praying for your future-- the wedding is just the beginning!!
