Engagement Details

I just realized that I have not shared how our daughter became engaged. Almost a year ago her boyfriend, Blake asked my husband and I if he could marry her. He wanted to surprise her and ask her in Italy, since she would be flying over their with her dad and sister in the fall.

While in Europe they also went to France for a week. 
So, my husband took both our girls to Europe to see the art and experience life there.  Blake secretly flew over and surprised her with a ring. He asked her to marry him in Italy in a romantic restaurant!  What a thrill for her, and yes, she did say, "Yes!" 
                               Philippians 4:6
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. " 

I have been praying for Victoria and all of my children since they were tiny. God has answered this prayer so wonderfully in giving Blake to her.

Blessings, Kathi
