Engagement party

Here are some pictures of the engagement party Dave and I had earlier this month. It was a wonderful time with friends and family, which we both enjoyed greatly.

It was an informal gathering, with the only formal parts of the afternoon being a prayer, a short speech from Dave, and the cutting of the cake.

We received a surprisingly huge mound of presents. It is exciting when people surprise you with their generosity!

As well as having a gospel-focused marriage Dave and I want to be focused upon loving others and having good relationships with them. We feel very blessed when we can enjoy time with people. I am looking forward to visiting Dave in Melbourne on May 10, and having another party up there! We are having a combined engagement party/Dave's birthday celebration.

Congratulations on your engagement. I have written a poem for you both!

A Prayer For Your Engagement

May the brilliance of the diamond
You wear on your hand
Forever captivate you
As together you stand
Delighting in each other
And pledging to be true,
Dreaming of the day
That one life is made of two.
May this ring remind you
It’s your own love’s special token,
Declaring your love so strongly
No words need be spoken.
May its many beautiful facets
Be a delight to behold,
And may time just like the diamond,
Help you both unfold
The many beautiful facets
That make up your beloved’s life
As you prayerfully plan this journey
Of becoming man and wife.

Hi Sherrin ~ sorry I'm just nw popping in to say hello as I've been out of town due to a death in the family. I really enjoyed seeing your engagement party pictures! I know you must have had a very enjoyable time. Wish we could be closer to participate in some of the fun activities you have planned! Enjoy!

I remember reading your articles on Ladies Against Feminism. Congratulations on your engagement, and I liked how the engagement cake had a wedding photo in the background. Was that of your parents or Dave's? Was the table deliberately placed in front of the photo or was it a coincidence?

Hi Michael,

The photo is a total coincidence. I hadn't really thought much about it, so thanks for pointing it out! It does add to the picture. The photo is of my sister and brother-in-law.
