David

I would like you to meet the most amazing man ever...David! He and I officially started a courtship on December 30th and are completely amazed at the goodness of God through each and every detail. I feel so blessed!
David came to visit on December 18th and left yesterday to go back home to Ireland (we met during my trip to Ireland earlier this year). It was so great having him here over Christmas and New Years. What a wonderful Christmas gift it was for me. After I dropped him off at the airport yesterday I came home to these gorgeous flowers that he had arranged to be delivered. Wow! He is completely amazing! What can I say!

Someone asked me what I liked best about him which is a hard thing to pin down because, well, he is just so totally great in every way. :) But high on my list of things I admire is his deep love for the Lord and his sincere desire for our relationship to bring honor and glory to Christ. It is a wonderous thing to have such a man interested in me. I am humbled by God's undeserving favor on me.

"Blessed be Your glorious name, Which is exalted above all blessing and praise!" Neh. 9:5b
