Every courtship is different. So is yours. You didn't follow the neat and tidy formula very much. At all!
Lance said he had to date someone he already knew pretty well and he had to know ahead of time if she liked him. This mom thought it was a tall order in reality, but I prayed accordingly for him. Dear God, please bring a woman into Lance's life who he already knows and let him somehow know beforehand that she likes him, too. Amen.
We figure if a son is not man enough to do his own courting; he has no business getting married.
I have prayed for miracles around here before, so I did that again. I have to admit, I didn't think about the fact that He could work on the heart of a woman, too. I know, so much for all my wisdoms about trusting God and not putting Him in a box...
Last fall and early winter, Lance started planning these little outings with Amy and a couple of friends that included a lovely girl we didn't know very well. We watched this with interest, because Lance does not want to take Amy and friend shopping just for anyhow, right?
Yes, we are enjoying this courtship. Kristine is the best thing that has ever happened to him. God did the miracle perfectly for both of them. She liked him and he was brave enough to ask her out. And let's just say that she is broadening his horizons and he, hers.
There, Ruthie S. is that what you wanted? That's just my angle. You'll have to ferret the rest out of them, ok?
