The Proposal Scoop!

Thank you so much to everyone with the wellwishes on my proposal. I am on cloud nine! I took a nap this afternoon because the adrenaline high had finally started to wear off! :) It has been a joy to share this journey with you my blog readers.

Here are the details of my day....

We started off at 10:30 to begin the day of important places in our relationship. We went to places that were firsts in our relationship...where we first had dinner (The Olive Garden), the dance studio, the park bench we used to always go to on the seminary campus.

We get to the last place, and Ben asks...."Do you remember this place?" I said, "No." He said, "You will." At that time, four people (two girls and two guys) step out and start to sing the song that Ben wrote for my proposal. The song is sung to the tune of the hymn "Love Lifted Me"....



Ben's Proposal Song

Ben has spent his nights alone, yearning to share his life.
Daily did his spirit goan, seeking to find a wife!
But our Lord has masterfully answered his fervent prayers!
Now unto you, Tiffany, his love declares!

Come, Tiffany! Ben's helpmate be!
Wed your precious life to his, Nuptually!
Come, Tiffany! Answer this plea!
Let your futures join as one, continually!

All his heart to you he'll give, ever to you be true!
Virtues praise and faults forgive, throught all time, in you!
His affection ever burns, making your beauty grow!
To his final day he years with you to go!

Come, Tiffany! Ben's helpmate be!
Wed your precious life to his, Nuptually!
Come, Tiffany! Answer this plea!
Let your futures join as one, delightfully!

Radiant maiden, precious jewel, serving-maid of the Lord!
Merely take this ring and your'll be the last adored!
Ben has made his jubilee subject to what you say!
He your husband wants to be! Be his today!


Come, Tiffany! Ben's helpmate be!
Wed your precious life to his, Nuptually!
Come, Tiffany! Answer this plea!
Let your futures join as one, And Legally!


The moment was filled with quite a few tears. I gladly said YES! :) I had never really envisioned my proposal...but as any girl, I often had thoughts of what my wedding would be like. I could not have imagined a better proposal.

How are we celebrating tonight? Later on he is coming over and we are watching Honeymoon in Vegas! Fun times!
