An Answered Prayer

Wonder what he is saying??? Is that a ring???
Yes, I believe it is a gorgeous ring!!!
This picture does not do it justice.

These 2 are so much alike. This is an answered prayer.
We all knew that this was in the works. The Lord is so good.
Now it is official!

Congratulations to Maranda & Lane!!!
We are so excited for you both!

I have 4 grown children. Three of my children are daughters and one is a son. My dream for all of my children is that they find their soul mate, their best friend - someone to love them and take care of them. I want them all to have what I have. I am so blessed. Two of my daughters are living their dreams. And now, another answered prayer......Lane proposed to Maranda!
This truly is an answered prayer in more ways than one.
I have learned that we think we know it all, but God has a plan and he does answer prayers.
Sometimes we have to go through things to get where we are going!
His timing is not our timing.
HE is right on time.

Special Note To Maranda's Angel:
I know that you know who you are. You are a blessing.
You gave her hope and now look!
An Answered Prayer.

I am so happy for Maranda and Lane!! I love the song by Garth Brooks "Unanswered Prayers". I can relate to that song with a lot of my own life experiences and I'm sure that Maranda can too. I am so happy that she is happy and has found her soul mate!!

Hugs to all of you!
Why do so many of your posts make me cry?!?!
