FC: Our First Year of Courtship | August 12, 2010-2011 Matthew Pouss & Denise Kramer
1: Our story storted where all begins...
2: Our story started where all begins; with God and the hope that love always wins. From playground to dancing, with reading and serving, friendship grew ripe and remained unswerving. Then, a word, a moment that questioned. Were we being led towards something more destined? Discernment followed with prayer and time. A direction that many take, but a path that less climb.
3: Answers then came with two questions more. Inquired August 12th, they would open a new door. Our relationship moved from wonderful friendship to joys much deeper in God-centered courtship. A year then passed from that blessed day, These pictures here help remember the way. Adventures we took. Moments we shared, God is owed credit, we'd like you aware. Our season of courtship continues on now. Our journey being written, we hope God will show how. Thank you for letting us share in our story, May it be witness as part of God's glory.
