Very inspirational blog. Thanks. <3
One of my favorite quotes (outside the Scriptures) is from the novel, Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery:
"My future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. Now there is a bend in it. I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does."
Have a wonderful day! (Though I expect being engaged makes it wonderful by default--Congratulations!)
