I'm Engaged!

Yep! I'm engaged to the most loveliest man on the planet... Mr Anthony Paul Pendlebury Brown. Our big day will be the 17th December 2011. He did everything perfectly right from the beginning...he woo'd, he asked my dad if he could date me, he ran on time every date, bought me flowers, chocolates, took me out for dinner many times, protects my heart, loves me, treats me with such respect, honour and dignity. He loves me. Before he asked me to marry him he spoke to his pastor and my dad... he is the man and always has my best interests at heart, I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him... I have known Anthony for 3 years, not well, but I have seen (and heard) about him! In mid November I attended a 'Rise Youth' combined youth night at his church, got a flat tyre on the way saw him singing on the night, left with a sore throat without even talking to him, added him on Facebook, he accepted my friend request that night, wrote on my wall the next morning, I spent the next 3 days in bed with bacterial tonsilitus and I've heard from him everyday since. I love him, and could not imagine my life without him...the thought of it devastates me. There has been mixed responses about our 'quick' engagment, generally from people who don't know us as a couple. I don't worry about those people. They're annoying, but my focus is on my future God has set before me and to run my race well, not comparing myself with anyone else or their relational course that God has set before them. I'm concerned on running my race well. I feel like I've known him forever. Í feel like he is a very generous gift from God and my mum. My dad loves him, my family love him. I love him. I am a very blessed woman. He has been worth the wait. More to come! Xx
