He Just Keeps Getting More and More Wonderful!


Wedding plans are well under way, and I've had some really fun moments lately asking my sister to be my matron of honor and a couple of dear friends to be my bridesmaids. Also, my friend Tray, who has been the minister of music at my church since I was 16, called tonight to give me the official word that he would be able to perform the ceremony. Very special.


Yesterday, after Annie agreed to be one of my bridesmaids, she was asking me about my fiance, and I was telling her how supportive he is of my acting career and how much that means to me. When I shared a specific example with her of his supportiveness, she let out a hearty laugh that said, "You really have found yourself a good man." She's so right.


Tonight, eSuitor and I were talking about my hopes for my career, and he said, "Chiros, baby!". I was like, "Chiros?". Then my seminary student hubby-to-be gave me a quick lesson in Greek. Apparently, in the New Testament, there are two words for time: chronos and chiros. Chronos refers to chronological, linear time. Chiros refers to a moment in time. He then said, "This is your moment, and I'm coming with you! I want to be here to support you and pray for you and go with you on this journey." My heart swelled so full it was brimming over with gratitude and joy. It is one thing for me to have a dream and to believe in it. But to have my man believe in me and my dreams with that kind of commitment...well, that in itself is a dream-come-true, and it means more to me that he will ever know!

This post makes me so happy. Wedding planning is such a WONDERFUL wonderful time in one's life.

I am so happy for you Starshine. YOu deserve nothing but happiness. Someone told me once to make sure I savored every minute of the engagement because it passes so quickly....and I did...and I am so pleased that I took some time to just "revel in it". I know you will too.

eSuitor sounds like a great partner! I hope you'll share some of your wedding ideas with us once you feel ready...:*)

PS - I also wanted to thank you for the comforting comments on my site re: adoption. It was a hard few days...but the fog is starting to lift. It was great to hear some comforting and loving words...they helped me fight the tears.

thanks again
