Rejoice With Us!

Romans 12:15 a. "Rejoice with those who rejoice..."


Psalm 28:7
"The Lord is my strength and my shield; 
My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, 
and with my song I will praise Him."

Psalm 30:11
"You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness."

Psalm 30:5
"Weeping may endure for a night, 
but JOY comes in the morning."


What is all of this about? You may not fully comprehend the joy that I feel today!  Our oldest son has announced his engagement to a lovely young Christian woman...and we are rejoicing!


 Rejoicing because  this is definitely something to be happy about!  Rejoicing because this is an answer to many years of prayer! Rejoicing because God is so gracious and loving and kind...



You may not understand why this is such a big deal...but it is...and we give God the glory and honor and praise...for Great Things He Hath Done!!!


"For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh..." 
Mark 10:7-8
The engagement ring they have chosen is a combination of both of their birthstones, each cut into a heart shape. Very beautiful and uniquely their own.


P.S.  The two roses came from our Memorial Garden. Kind of an "engagement gift" from Benton's brother Matthew in heaven ....Roses for Rose and Benton...the first blooms of this year on this bush.



"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad!" 
 Psalm 126:3

Rejoice with us!
