"They can laugh. They can cry. The future looks so beautiful and bright."

"A diamond ring and twelve red roses
Everything she ever wanted
All those dreams and now they're finally here
She's so young and he's so perfect
They waited for love and it was worth it
She wants to feel like this for a hundred years" ~Francesca Battistelli
The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. ~Elisabeth Foley
I am excited to watch my BEST friend smile and laugh as the dream we have talked about for years has come true. Her prince has come and swept her off her feet. How truly amazing it is to watch God's plan for each of our lives unfold. Reminds me of the many late night talks about how life will look in 5 years and where God will have us and who He will bring into our lives. My how time flies. It's here. Joyful tears were shed when I got the call that a diamond ring had been placed on her finger and as her dream was coming true. God revealed her prince to her after waiting and praying for God's perfect match. What a perfect match it is. Brandon Lay came into Beth's life about a year ago. I have never seen such a big smile on Beth's face. What a team God is putting together and what a story of God's love and faithfulness. Our Savior radiates through their smiles and their lives. I know God has amazing plans for their life together :) I look forward to watching their life together grow as God guides them down this new chapter in their life. :)
