Our Little *SECRET* Up On the Hill

~Where we'll walk every step of *forever*, together.

To His Glory.

tirsdag 5. oktober 2010

So, I left...

.....Norway last Wednesday
... and travelled all the way to America. in three days (October 9) I'll be getting married
to that handsome guy running up the hill towards me,
in the very spot I'm standing
(if the weather is nice that is)
Right now we (which is me, my wonderful Pigletish sister, ***** and *****)
are sewing the wedding dress,
Ben (and ***** and ******)
are working on our perfect, cozy little *secret* (to me), now I know it's a house.
Thank you all for praying me through this,
it's been the hardest year in my (very short) life.
I'm still getting over it,
but I'm getting better every day.
Thanks again.

Your sad year is over. Now, you are starting your new life with Ben. The wedding will be beautiful outside or inside. It is the two people and their love for God and one another which counts. I love the fact that you all are making your dress. I can't wait to see photos. Most of all, I pray God grants you many wonderful years together.

Now that is a victory! Just thought I would let you know, I put a bit of something for you and Ben into a package I sent to Jewels today. I seem to recall reading something somewhere about your needing several large stockpots??!! For bathing babies and such, of course! Anyway,hope that it will help out some way. Excited beyond belief for you!! Much love - Raquel XO

I am so so happy for you!!! Congratulations! :) What wonderful news!!!! I pray it is a beautiful day and a wonderful union!
And oh my goodness...they are building you both a house??? How absolutely fantastic!

My husband's cousin is getting married this Saturday as well. So while I am attending a wedding, I will be thinking of yours as well and praying you have a most glorious day blessed by God!

Mrs. Anna T sa...

Oh.... I can only imagine how excited you are right now, only a couple of days before the wedding!! I'm sure saying farewell to your home was bittersweet... it was for me, and I wasn't leaving my country of birth behind. What a marvellous adventure you have before you. I'm not sure how soon you (or Jewels) will have time to update again, but you'll be in my thoughts.

Wishing every blessing upon the two of you and your union before Him in marriage.

I enjoy reading your blog and look forward to following your new life together. Have a beautiful wedding!

Blessings to you on you wedding day! And many blessings for your marriage. I have found you through Eyes of Wonder, Jewels, your new mother-in-law. My prayer is that God will truly bless you and keep you both. May His mercy and grace be seen by the 2 of you forever.
It has been wonderful to see your story come alive. I just wait in anticipation for my own 2 girls to meet their love stories. May they be as blessed as you and your Ben. Happy October 9th!

Wow!!! Today (the 9th) is the day for you!!!! How so, so very exciting! I am so incredibly happy for the two of you! What a fairy tale and beyond enormous blessing. Can't wait to see pictures of it all. My husband and I were married 6 years ago this past Sat. (the 2nd), so I know firsthand how amazing an outdoor autumn wedding is, not to mention *any* wedding to the man of your dreams. Congratulations ten times over! So excited for you and the life you're beginning *together*. God bless you both!

Hello dear heart! Congratulations on your marriage. Have been enjoying the photos from your new family-in-loves very much! Can't wait to see the top secret secret (house), too. How exciting for you all. I understand some of what you mean about things having been hard for you this year. My sisters, brothers, little nieces and nephews, and my parents (and many other relatives) live on the other side of the world, in Australia, while I am living here in the US with my American hubby and six children. Waiting is hard, and when the waiting time is over, the actions you must take are also hard, even when they are good. I would love to help you in any way that I can, given that I understand some of the things you will be facing. Hugs and kisses, from a far-away friend :-)

Anonym sa...

Anonym sa...

Dearest Aslaug Abigail, I want to send a special hello and blessing to you. It is Oct. 11th and that means you should now be a wife and help meet to your best friend. It is such a wonderful surprise for you, a cozy little house. Congratulations to you both.

"Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in His ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruiful vine by the side of thine house: thy children like the olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD." Psalm 128 1-4

God Bless you. By His Grace, Cynthia
