Re-Re-Introducing Myself!

Hey, ladies!

So I've been lurking around TK and have only poked my head in here and there. That is until a few minutes ago when I read Jess' re-introduction. Smile I feel like I was reading my very own story!!!!

DJ and I have been engaged for over a year and a half and were SUPPOSED to wed on November 26th of this year. However, a HUGE fight tore us apart back in July and he called off the wedding. He said I was the craziest woman he'd ever known!!! After a few explitives.... I knew and had to admit that he was right. I had been acting like a crazed maniac! LOL! So... We asked our families to pray for us and took a little time apart. Then we came back together and made a decision that we wanted to keep our family intact and move forward...together.

So we began going to church and couples counseling to work through not only our relationship issues but other issues as well (work stress, family issues, communication problems, etc). We also admitted (Well I admitted) that planning this wedding was really ripping us apart. It was becoming about one day and not the two of us becoming one. We are so much happier now that we've decided to scale everything back to what's most important to us...becoming one.

Our new date is February 17th (yes, 2011) and although I haven't sent out invitation the first...I am not stressed about it. LOL But I will be in here bending your ears a lot over the next 50 days!!!

    Congratulations again and welcome back.  I am so happy for you.....It is amazing how GOD can take these types of situations and turn them around.  You're correct it is about a marriage and not so much about the wedding.  I am sure yours and Jess's testimony can be a blessing for our ladies.  Thanks for shares and again congratulations on your upcoming marriage.

    Thank you all so much!!!!

    (Sorry for the delay in replying. They have blocked ALL message boards/forums from my job so I have to wait until I get home.)

    summer - We ARE the best!!! Smile

    Jess - You really encouraged me to share my testimony. It just goes to show, you never know how God will use you.

    lil01 - Don't I know it??? I'm so happy that we were able to get our focus back on us and our family.

    Yas - I keep watching my ticker and thinking, "Girl, get it together!!!!" Time is flying and my wonderful father not-so-sweetly reminded me of that today. LOL

    Okay... Tomorrow is the last day of my quarter at work. It would have been today but there is never any rest for the weary so only a few departments are actually working tomorrow on a COMPANY HOLIDAY! Yes! Hmph! LOL But after I unwind and let go some this weekend, I'm kicking all my planning back into high gear and getting it done.
