Katie & George || Engaged
What a joy it was to be a part of such an incredible day! George and Katie are such close friends and February 13th was such a special day.
George and Katie love to drive around the Mordecai district in downtown Raleigh. This one particular house is Katie's favorite so George decided that would be the perfect place to propose. Only one problem: whose house is this and will they let him use it? Well, long story short, George met the couple who lives there and they were the nicest, most generous couple! Trish and John are now forever friends of George and Katie. Because they don't have children of their own, it was so special to them to be a part of George and Katie's engagement. Katie and George have an incredible effect on people--it is impossible to know them and not feel loved. This simple encounter with Trish and John is just a glimpse into the impact that this couple will have on their community. They leave behind a little bit of Jesus everywhere they go and I love it!
"Bless the Lord, Oh my soul and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not His benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's."
The week of her engagement, she texted me saying "Praying Psalm 103 over you today." Are you kidding me?! Unreal friendship. I love it. Apparently George knew Katie was studying this passage of scripture too and he chose this beautiful chapter to read with Katie on February 13th. The joy and love that filled this day was surreal--a joy and love that reflect the Father's love for us.
