|Mr. Bryant James Cutler|
We "met" about 14 months ago via our college's forums where students can talk with one another, and encourage, teach, and edify one another. We enjoyed talking and getting to know each other, and greatly desired to meet in person. That finally happened this past March. It was somewhat awkward, meeting for the first time, but we had a fun time getting to know each other and their families. During this meeting my Daddy gave Bryan permission to pursue a relationship with me... so, he did :)
We met once more in June, and again in July. In July, our families and us went to a near by city for supper one night... this evening, Bryant took me for a walk by the river, stopped me and we just stood by the water. He was standing behind me, talking in my ear...
"Kathryn, are you ready to be married?"
"I believe so..."
"That's not an answer. Are you ready to be married?"
"Yes, I am."
"My father has given me permission to marry you....(long pause)... and so has yours! Will you marry me?"
I didn't give him time to get down on his knee to give me the ring, I just wanted to give him a real big hug.
Anyhoo... The next day we picked a date, Oct. 1, 2011.
(Three months to plan a wedding! It wasn't terribly bad, especially since neither of us wanted an extravagant affair.)
I wore my mother's dress, and it fit just right when I first tried it on. He wore white for the same reason I did. As a symbol that he saved himself, pure and undefiled for his one and only bride.
For whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
