The greatest blessing ever—Michelle and I are Engaged!!

Hey everyone,
Well, in case you have not been otherwise informed, on thursday the 12th of april 2007 at about 11 at night under the stars and upon the Torr an Aba before the Abbey on Iona I proposed to Michelle and she said YES!!!! So beyond all hope and grace and crazy joy we are engaged!!! God is seriously awesome! Not to mention ridiculously gracious, for it is only in Him that i have been given this blessing beyond all others—to get to walk beside His beautiful daughter, Michelle. i pray that in Him, in His love and strength, i may be able to love her as she deserves. So yeah, i wanted to thank all of you for your prayers and support throughout our relationship, as well as to share with you some of the joy of this awesome birth of light, this grand new journey we have begun. Here are some pictures both from Iona itself, the holy island where St. Columba landed in about 563 with his 12 warrior-monk companions to begin what was the heart of Christianity within the UK, and from our crazy Easter adventure in general. We saw much of Wales, England, and even made it up to Scotland (Iona is off the west-coast of Scotland by the way). And for those of you who are wondering we rented a car and i got to drive on the other side of the road! Very cool! Hope you all enjoy these few pics from our journey! i look forward to coming home and getting to show you all some of the videos we took as well! In this time of preperation we ask that you continue to pray for us, that we seek Him in all things, and that He be the foundation upon which we stand, the goal we seek, the strength we bear, the cool breeze upon our faces, and the cor and fire of our love. Shoots, see you all lataz!!
