So yesterday Jacki and I went up to Frisco to a little trail that we took on our first outing together with our church, a little over a year and a half ago. It goes up to a small lake nestled in the mountains. There as the sun was setting, I pulled the ring out of my pocket and asked her if she would be mine.

She said YES!, cried a little bit, and now a whole new adventure in my life is starting.

We've been dating for a little over 14 months, and God has been leading and blessing, and we're both extremely happy.

Just wanted to share.

Congratulations! Great picture too!

FYI: When all the wedding planning starts driving you crazy, just remember: "It's much better BEING married than GETTING married."

It is a wonderful feeling when you make that decision to be with the best thing in your life. A lifelong partner. Jill and I celebrate 25 years in May this year. Brings a smile to my face to see two good people like yourselves do this for themselves.

Congratulations, Matt. I was lucky enough to meet both of you on the trail up to Argentine Pass last summer.

I've only been married for about 2 1/2 years, but it has been wonderful so far!

Well, 25 years under our belt. It is an adventure in spiritual formation for sure. Carrie is my closest friend and she is well acquainted with all my closet-housed skeletons! :lmao:

You will face issues you never thought you had. You will feel despair, and elation. Just when you got it all figured out all the rules will change and you will feel like you are starting over.

Through it all, guarding your friendship with your life, finding the humor in any way possible, not putting overmuch meaning in anything said, and
NEVER SAY THE FIRST THING YOU WANT TO SAY
will keep the marriage alive. This is assuming you already have a marriage culture of Christ-centeredness (this is for Matt, I know, I know).

Best decision I ever made.
