It is always amazing how the Lord brings people together in His way and in His time! Josh and I have been friends for quite some time, and it has been a blessing and an encouragement. 3 1/2 weeks ago my family and I, along with Josh and some other college students went to Devil's Lake, ND to help knock doors for the launching service of Grace Baptist Church. Dad and two of my brothers rode with Josh, and my mom and I had my other two siblings and another girl from Bible college. We stopped to get gas on the way back, then dropped Nicole off at the church, picking up my dad and my two other brothers and headed home. After getting everyone settled, I prepared to head to bed myself, and when I went in the living room to tell Mom and Dad "goodnight", Dad told me I couldn't go to bed yet. He had something to tell me. So I waited and he said, "A young man expressed interest in you today." I looked at him kind of funny and said, "Josh?!?!" And his reply was an excited YES! ...and then filled me in on the story of how Josh brought it up :) With our parents' blessing, Josh and I began courting that Monday, and it has been a sweet and blessed time ever since. I am so thankful to have Josh in my life, and he has been a blessing and an encouragement to me. I love him dearly, and thank the Lord for him daily. His love for the Lord and zeal to serve Him is an encouragement to me, and I am excited to see what the Lord has in store for us in the future!! To read Josh's side of the story, click here.
