Whit and JD ~ Engaged!!!

Last night, my darling baby girl was swept off her feet!! Her boyfriend surprised her at her ZTA Candlelight Service! At the Candlelight Service a candle is passed around all the girls (200+) two times as they sing their Zeta song. On the third time the girl that just got engaged holds the candle and then blows it out. Tonight was a little different, Whitney did not know that she had been set up to be that girl!!! Her friend Felicity (which also hopefully will be engaged soon) help JD put everything together. She also arranged to have the candle stop at her (she was standing next to Whit) and as soon as it did JD walked into the room and Whitney went crying and running to him!!! He got down on one knee and said she was the perfect example of a Proverbs 31 Woman (after that I started crying and because of the crying could not hear the rest). He then pulled out the ring (blue topaz instead of diamond) and ask her to marry him!!! Felicity took the candle to Whitney and then had her blow it out!! It was so sweet and romantic!!
The greatest JOY~~~~ She is marrying a man called to serve as a MISSIONARY!!! Keep both of them in your prayers as they seek to find where God will have them serve!
Wedding Time!!!
