So, last week I experienced shopping for the groom. Josh and I headed to the mall to find the perfect suit coat for the wedding. I sure do love any time I get to spend with my boy...wait...I should probably start calling him a man. Respect is a quality Joshua has done so well showing me. We looked around, he tried things on, asked me my opinion, checked on if I needed a rest, enjoyed a coffee together....What a blessing my boy is to me! Then, he found some great things for the wedding! yay!
Soon, to be 3 Mrs. Gimenez's. Wow!

I am quite behind in my posting. Yikes! Bear with me, I'm hoping to catch up this week. There's a lot happening in the Gimenez Home!
We were so blessed to have the Youth Group from our sending church, Winkler Road Baptist Church, to come for the week and put on VBS! Our church is still young that we don't quite have enough workers to put on a full blown VBS, so it was a blessing to have a group to come and put all their energy into it. It was a great week!

For those of you that know my Josh, know that about 2 years ago, he met a very special young lady. As a Momma, it has been a joy to watch them talk, learn more about each other, enter a courtship, and wait for God's perfect timing.My Josh has been praying for the right time to ask Tabitha Fisher to be his wife. Oh my! Did I just type that? My little boy? Yes, I sure did. He's grown into a fine young man, and Patrick and I are so proud of him!
So, Josh came to us a few weeks ago and said that he believes it's time to ask. How exciting! He worked up the nerve to call Tabitha's Dad. Josh has a great relationship with the whole Fisher family, but it is funny that once it's time for the guy to ask the Dad....it gets nerve wracking!
As Josh stepped outside to make the phone call, Patrick and I got down on our knees and prayed. We prayed for God's will, timing and direction. Josh came back in a bit later. He was smiling with his cute dimpley smile and said, "He said I can ask her!" He was so excited. We were too!
So, my boy came up with a completely romantic idea. He worked on it night and day. (seriously) He told us he wanted the Fishers to be there, as well as Patrick and I, Beth and Brenna. It was so honoring that he wanted us all to share this very special day.
We were given our orders to arrive early to Tabitha's church (the place they met and will be married) He wanted us to set up 5 tables. The first four tables had memorabilia from each stage in their relationship...getting to know each other, writing long distance, courtship...
We followed our instructions and referred to the pictures he saved on our phone to make sure it was all prepared exact. :o)
So, who is Tabitha Fisher? She is the young lady we have been praying for, even before she was born. She is the one that God made for my son, Joshua. We are so thankful! Tabitha is a very sweet girl that loves the Lord and desires to serve Him with her life. She has a heart for souls, loves children (just like my Josh!), and loves my Josh! From the very beginning Josh told us, "There is just something different about this girl." And it's true. If you meet Tabitha, you will see God's love radiating from her life. What a blessing to have her join hearts with our Joshua! Truly a match made in heaven!
God is so good!!

I love how the Lord gives each of our children different strengths, gifts and traits. I am so blessed by each of them!
My Elisabeth is very traditional and classic. She has always loved to read and has enjoyed collecting old books.
Not too long ago, she came to me with a recent book she had read that someone had given her. The title is "Quiet Talks on Prayer" by S. D. Gordon. The copyright is 1904. She said that even though it is worn and the pages are yellowed, it was such a blessing to her! I don't know about you, but I don't know many 18 year olds that read books that old on prayer. What a treasure my Beth is!
So, guess what is next up on my reading list?
