First Comes Love...

Once upon a time in a lands far apart, two young people grew up committed to loving their future partner through the purity they showed in their lives even before they ever met.

They both concentrated on falling in love first and foremost with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And they trusted that in His perfect timing He would be the one to bring them together. And He didn't disappoint! The Author or Romance saw in these two people a heart for others and a heart for Himself and He started writing their love story even before they ever met. He was creating separately in each of them a hope and a future that would one day intertwine. And soon The Author decided that it was time to bring them together!

So He used
mutual friends and a visit to Texas to introduce Andrew and Crystal to one another! They continued to trust the Lord to lead their steps and continued to honor Him and each other through their relationship.

And now the next chapter of their love story is about to unfold...

On New Years day 2009 in a very romantic way Andrew asked Crystal for her hand in marriage. And she said "YES!"

My big sister is getting married! I'm so happy for these two special people!
They are planning a wedding for early June here in Florida.

Congratulations to you both!
