Facebook Doesn't Lie
I thought that most of you would know before you found out on facebook. Sister Morgan was ecstatic to announce it at seminar today, it must of slipped her mind. But that's OK! After all, it is the gospel of repentance and forgiveness. It's true though, I am engaged, hooray!
Her name is Sarah (she's 21 next month, she is a beautician graduate girl, and extremely cute), and we met at institute. Sunday I asked her to marry me; however, due to my lack of wealth, she has no ring. And because she has no ring, we have no cool proposal story. That will happen once I get some income again. We are planning on getting hitched in the late fall at the Logan Temple, a mutual place for both families. Then we'll move back to Rexburg so I can finish school while she works full-time.
We are both pretty excited, and surprised, that it happened. When we started dating, neither of us wanted anything serious. She had a missionary with ten months left, and I was coming back to Idaho. With no pressure for anything to happen, we ended up engaged. Odd how that works eh? Last night we wrote off her missionary, and her sisters said that our engagement “is like a member of the family dying.” They really like him, but they don’t know me. I told Sarah to tell her sisters that I am like a member of the family that has died and is now resurrected, that much better. I am optimistic that they will love me as most people do.
I must say, God is pretty dang good at making awesome things happen with the unexpected detours of life.
PS - It is not freezing or snowy here in Maryland, just cold wetness.
