WOOHOO!!! The Date Has Been Set!!!

I've been waiting to post the wonderful news so that Jessica had opportunity to post it first. She has posted the news...so now I can too.

Ronnie and Jessica have set the date for the wedding of MARCH 1, 2008!! We are all very excited. My husband and I have felt for a few weeks now that they would be married this year and after talking to Jessica's momma we discovered that they felt the same way. We just wanted them to have the Lord's leadership in the timing of letting them set the date. That time came Sunday night at about midnight. Ronnie got the call from her daddy Monday morning that they had given permission to set the date. Ronnie then called Jessica and they talked about it and they have chosen the date they have. They are VERY excited as are all of us parents!! My son is leaving home but I'm gaining a daughter. We love Jessica very much and are very excited for her and Ronnie.

They have honored God in their courtship and I know they are going to honor Him in their marriage. I know God has great plans for them both and I wait in anticipation and much prayer to see what He does in their marriage and through them. Please pray for Jessica as she gets busy with the planning stage of things. She has been preparing for this day for years now and is mostly ready aside from a few last minute things that couldn't be done before this point.

If you would like....go by her blog to let her know you'll be praying for her and for them both as a couple. I know she will get a blessing from knowing that you'll be praying for them.

Aw, you are so sweet!! Ronnie and I are already counting down the weeks. I know it won't be long until we are counting days instead of weeks!! 2 months seems like a long time until I look at our "To Do List" LOL!! :)

Love you,
Jessica

Oh my goodness how exciting!!! I've been waiting to learn the day. :o) even though I don't know your family, there's been a level of anticipation concerning this. March 1...what a lovely date.

Bless you dearly.

Sis. Julie said...

Thank you all so very much!! We are very excited about this. I'm sure it will come fast..but it truly can't come fast enough. I say that for them....they have waited so long for this day. They have honored God and not kissed or held hands or touched at all. So they are anxiously awaiting that day when Jessica's daddy puts her hand in Ronnie's and then they are able to have that FIRST kiss at the wedding altar. Amen!!!

Congrats, Sis. Julie on soon becoming a mother-in-law!!! :) I saw the announcement on Jessica's blog a couple of days ago and have already congratulated her. Be sure to take plenty of pics!!

Sis. Julie said...

courtney....thanks for the congrats!! I'm afraid I'm going to have to appoint someone else to get lots of pictures. Jessica has asked me and Kristina and Michelle to be in her wedding party so I won't be able to get too many pictures that I would need to be in. But you can bet I'll have someone to get them for me!!
