My Baby is Getting Married!

Ok, so she is not a baby anymore, she is after all 21 years old. She will always be MY baby though. Yesterday, Ryan and Jessica went with a group of people to Disney in Florida. While they were there Ryan proposed and of course Jessica accepted. They have been planning thier wedding since last April, even though they had not made their engagement "offical".

I am so excited for the two of them and the future they will, Lord willing, share together. So many things are running through my mind right now. I know they are ready to be married. They are both mature Christians. They are perfect for each other. I have never seen Jessica the way she is with Ryan. She is so in love with him. I have heard the same about Ryan and the way he is with Jessica. I could not have picked a better mate for my daughter, if I had chosen him myslef.

I prayed for a very long time that Jessica would find someone or that they would find each other. The Lord has answered my prayer. What a Mighty, Awesome God we serve!

I wish them all the best in life. A long happy marriage. Many years to serve God together. And of course someday, when the time is right, children.

God bless you both Ryan and Jessica! I love you!

Mom (Dorothy)

    Congratulations! I am so happy for you and them. Do they have a date set or even a general time of year? Our Older daughter, Bethany, married Travis last July. Our younger daughter, Sarah, is getting married to Jake (the son of dear friends of ours from FC) next July. What busy and blessed times these are!

    They have not set a date yet. They are waiting to see if they can both get a job after graduation in May. They would like to get married next summer.

Re-connecting on Pleo

Hello Friends!.

It has been a very long time since I have been on pleo. I even had to create a new account, to find out my old name. Did that make sense? I hope to log in more often. At least that is the plan. I am on facebook a lot as that is where my friends from church post.

So much has happend it would be hard to catch up in one post. So for now I am back on pleo and I will post more later.

Take Care!

    It is so good to hear from you. I am pretty new to Pleo and am enjoying it very much. I love all the thought provoking discussions, as well as, the chance to keep up with friends. I am glad you are back. I have not joined Facebook, but just this week some high school friends emailed me. Apparently I was hard to find. So, if I want to keep up with them, I will have to branch out into the world of Facebook. Email and Pleo take enough of my time, not sure if I want to do more. How are your girls doing? My older daughter, Bethany, got married this past July and my younger daughter, Sarah, is planning a wedding for next July! So, we are staying busy. We are also in the process of adopting 2 children from a former disrupted adoption. Our new daughter, Aminata, is 6 and our youngest son, Andrew, is 2, soon to be 3. They are both doing great, as are we. So good to chat with you. :)

It has been a long time since I have been on Pleo!

It sure has been a long time since I have been on Pleo. So much has happened since I last posted. One thing that has changed ,my employment status. I am the Secretary to the Board, for our local Right to Life group. I am the only employee. So, I basically run the office. Everyone else is a volunteer. I like my job, although at times it can get quite demanding.

Another thing that has changed ,that my younger daughter, Jessica, is getting married. She isn't "officially" engaged at this point. She does not have a ring. But I am sure that will happen very soon. I really love Ryan (her boyfriend) he fits in well with our family. I have truly found a new friend in his mom too.

This summer has been very busy. So much I could say, but I need to go for now. My Spanish lesson awaits me! Oh yea, that is a story for another time.

Take care and hopefully I won't take so long to update again.

    It is good once in a while to get a few paragraphs of update instead of a sentence here and there. I intend to follow Pleo better in the future...

Is anyone on Pleo anymore!?

Judging by the dates on my pleo friends posts as well as my last post, I am wondering how many people are still using pleo? Please let me know if you are still on pleo. Thanks. DS

Sorry the last entry was too depressing, except for the part about Jessica's birthday. That girl has been lighting up my life for 21 years!
