Thanks to all of you who have e-mailed, texted, or left comments to find out how I’m doing. I am so grateful for each of you! Just so you know, I did not drop off the face of the earth. I wish I had time to write the whole story (stay tuned for the book! :-)), but here’s a very brief synopsis of what has been going on in my life the last nine weeks.
On August 21, God brought Julian Weber to my doorstep. Literally. He spent about 5 hours talking with my dad, sharing his story, and ultimately asking for permission to pursue a relationship with me. Life has been a whirlwind since that day, and as of October 4, I am engaged to a man I have come to love with all my heart.
Through many challenges leading up to and following the death of his first wife, God has walked with Julian and his four children (whom I have also grown to love very dearly!) and brought amazing redemption and restoration in his life. Though different on the surface, God has so faithfully and lovingly walked with me for 30+ years, building a foundation in my life and preparing me for this exciting new adventure! We praise God for all that He has done and is doing in our lives, and would love your prayers as we prepare for our wedding on December 21.
“This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.” Psalm 118:23
In light of this, I hope you’ll forgive my long absence from the blog and any negligence in responding to e-mails. It’s about all I can do to keep up with the studio and teaching, various other responsibilities, planning a wedding, and preparing to be a wife and mother in a couple of months. But I am loving the adventure and am confident that this is what God has called me to do. I do look forward to continuing Music Matters Blog, and have so much I’d love to share with you as soon as I am able!
