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!!
