Love Day!

Happy Monday!!!

This past weekend was REALLY good!

Last thursday was Valentines Day! I had a blast.
My coworkers and I had been talking about who was going to receive flowers and who wasn't...I was definitely wishing/hoping I would. I have never had anyone send me flowers to my work...so I was hoping since I am engaged and all I would receive flowers. So did I?....


Of course I did...My Handsome came himself and delivered them to my job. It was the cutest thing ever! I am so grateful to have him... <3

On January 20th, at around 6:20ishh right before Sunday evening service started, my love asked me if I can meet him on platform because him and Joel wanted to speak to me and Rose....Strange, I thought but ok...When all four of us were there Joel handed Rose an envelope and Tim handed me an envelope. I thought...nail certificates to get our nails done? But to my surprise it was this....

I am lucky to be marrying such a talented graphic designer.

My honey had booked us a dinner cruise! I had always wanted to do this and I was glad that it was actually happening. I do admit I had mentioned it a couple of times as a hint...and my love had listened and made it happen. He definitely scored some major points! :] We had such a good time, dinner was enjoyable and even though it was freezing, we still got to enjoy the beautiful view of San Diego at night.
With our bestfriends: Joel and Rose Bates..and baby David.


It was such a good day...our only Valentine's day as an engaged couple...it was definitely special.

P.S.  48 days!

Almighty King!

Isn't gorgeous?!!

So another thing is marked off on the checklist....The HONEYMOON! :)

By far it is the thing I am most excited about...

So before I tell you where we are going.....I have to give you a background on how we went about choosing where to go. My lovely Fiance and I had made a deal...The deal consisted that...he chose the wedding date and I got to choose where we went for the honeymoon! Isn't that a great deal? I think so!

So even before we were engaged I had already been thinking of where I wanted to go, well I mainly knew where I did NOT want to go. I wanted to do something different, but not too different. Ha! Oh and I wanted to go somewhere that was US Territory....Sooo, with that said and the picture above...any guesses?

Hawaii? Puerto Rico? San Diego? LOL none of these....so drum roll pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.....

We are going to....

The US Virgin Islands!!!

I am sooo excited! and he is too! We found an all inclusive deal on Living social so we took advantage of it. We are only staying 3 nights, BUT we are coming back and hitting up disneyland for 2 days!

I am so thrilled and excited.

That is not the best news yet....

We serve and Almighty, Most powerful King...!
If you have ever planned a wedding before, you know that it is not only time consuming but money consuming also. I wanted to share an amazing testimony of what God did yesterday.

So I get a text from my love saying " You're not going to believe this...." then sends me another one saying " you're really not" So I respond asking what, and as I am anxiously waiting for his reply, everything is going through my mind.... E V E R Y T H I N G!
and so finally I get his response....
"My boss is going to pay for our flights....I'm not even kidding"

My jaw immediatly dropped. I honestly did not believe it...I even text him back asking "are you sure you're not kidding?" LOL But he wasn't. I should have known that the God I serve is capable of this and more. I never thought something like this would happen. But God knew/ knows our needs. And though I am not perfect and still stress...I know that in the end, the creator of the heavens and the earth, holds my life in His hand.

So why stress?

That is so convicting...why do we stress? why the unbelief? if we serve the one who makes the impossible, POSSIBLE.

With that said, If you are reading this and you don't serve him...what are you waiting for?
