Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
It's a simple story really.When I read those words months ago when I first started dating the man I will soon marry . . . I knew those were the words I wanted to use on my blog to announce my engagement!! :)
Two people learning to trust God.
Two winding paths that God made straight.
straight paths that He choose to cross at just the right time.
. . .
The Creator of romance, the Maker who arranged the first "boy meets girl" in the Garden so long ago, is still at work. [Taken from Joshua Harris' book Boy Meets Girl]
Needless to say a lot has happened recently. God has been kind, very kind!!
Some of you found out that I had a boyfriend in real life, some of you found out by email, but for many of you this is coming as a total shock and surprise. :)
I promise I didn't just decide yesterday to marry the guy next to me on the bus. And, I also promise that we didn't keep our relationship secret from our family and in-real-life friends. We just choose to keep our relationship off the blog for a couple of reasons.
And, that is really what made blogging these past few months difficult . . . I couldn't blog about what I really wanted to . . . and I was kinda busy spending time with the man of my dreams. :)
We are working on putting our story online, so those of you who have not been walking
next to us as God brought us together and we fell in love can praise God with us now as we tell our
story of His grace in our lives.
You can go to our wedding site and/or wedding blog to read more, but here are the basic details:
Lord willing, Lawrance Aaron Wu and I will be married on August 31, 2008 in Texas.
We will have another celebration here in Taiwan at the end of the year, and we will continue to live, work, and minister in Taiwan--just together, rather than apart. :)
Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us! What joy! (Psalm 126:3 NLT)
This coming Monday, I will, Lord willing, leave Taiwan and go Stateside for a little over two months. I will leave single, but return married to an awesome man who loves the Lord and has a heart that beats strongly to share the gospel with the lost. What a blessing!!
We would appreciate your prayers for us as we make all the transitions that we will face in the coming weeks and months. Our greatest desire is for God to be glorified, please pray that as we wrap up things here, transition to a different country for awhile, and plan for both a wedding and a life together that we can keep our focus on Christ alone.
