So things are really heating up with my daughter. I was just informed yesterday, that she and her friend Matt are going to start pre marital counseling! I was surprised to say the least, all I could say was, “oh really?”
They’re very young and want to get married, in a way I’m excited but speechless, because they have only known each other since January. So there it is, now all I’m waiting for is his official asking her hand in marriage speech.
He said he was going to contact me this week to ask me if it was ok.
That’s a good question, is it ok? My goodness I didn’t see this coming, I was just getting used to him being her “little friend,” as I called it, and now we have something really different on the table here.
Although should I be that surprised? My daughter’s been telling me since she was very young, she wanted to be married and have lots of babies one day. So, here I sit, with my mouth wide open, thinking about what to say to this young man.
His reasons seem super adorable and genuine that I’m sure it’s ok. I’m just losing my baby girl and it makes me a little uncomfortable. The bible says,
Genesis 2:24 ~ Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (ESV)
So since I can’t really argue with the bible, I suppose I will get on board with this. He seems like a godly man and he wants the best for her, I mean that’s what I asked God for, so long ago when she was a baby. So here we are, WOW. God, answered my prayers, and with whom He chose for her. So, I’m happy I think, well I will pray again to be sure. There is a saying, to be careful what you pray for you just might get it. Umm, so yeah, it looks like I just got it. Shazza ~ Musings&Rants
