Exciting News for the Wimberly Family

So this is my first born. Notice her ring finger? Yesterday was her 22nd birthday. Honestly when old people say time flies, it really does. I can't believe 22 years ago I was in labor(it was a long,hard one by the way)and the result was this beautiful little red headed bundle. I still remember the doctor putting the internal monitor on her and saying,"well, your baby has hair" and me wondering, "hair??? I never thought about hair". Our Sarah was everything you would want your first born to be. She was such a delight to us. Here, 22 years later it has not all been delightful, but it has been a wonderful journey and I am so blessed to be her Momma. So, yesterday her beau of nearly 3 years proposed to our baby and asked her to be his wife. We knew it was coming. He,Chris, aka "the boy" talked to David, aka Eddie "the father" on Monday and asked for permission to marry her. I've known it was coming all week and didn't tell anyone!(Isn't that amazing???) David saw the ring on Monday, but I hadn't seen it. We had her birthday lunch at home yesterday and then they headed to the beach. I was at my Bible study small group when my cell phone rang and so I put her on speaker so all my "peeps" could hear her news. It was fun. We waited up for her to get home and I got to see her ring. It is GORGEOUS! I'm so happy for Sarah and Chris. We have had our reservations about their lack of future plans, but honestly God has so confirmed in our hearts that this is His plan for them and we are just thrilled to watch what He is going to do in these two peoples lives. As they commit their lives to each other and again to Him it is going to be quite the adventure, as all us married folks can attest to. I am so pleased with their love for Him and each other. It is a sweet love story...two young people committed to Christ first and then at ages 23 and 19 began their very first relationship that has blossomed into a forever love. Sounds like a happily ever after to me....Congratulations Sarah and Chris and "Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."(ephesians 3:20-21)
