Jacob had told me for weeks that we were going to go home to his parents the weekend before Easter, and celebrate early. That way we could have Easter with my family on Easter. We were not leaving until Saturday the 31st because Jacob's sister and her husband were not going to be there until dinner time on Saturday so we were just going to wait until they got there. So with the time we had we went shopping to get Jacob's niece Maggie an Easter present. I have no problem killing time when shopping. I kept wanting to go earlier, saying that we could just go and hang out with your mom until Shae and David got there. He did a great job stalling!!
So we left for Neosho and arrived around 4:30. When we pulled up to his parent's house I saw mason jars hanging in the tree in the front yard. I just thought that Jacob's mom had decorated for Easter. Then I saw that there were mason jars with yellow flowers in them and the made an aisle that led down to an archway.
After struggling reading that through tears of overwhelming blessing. Jacob then took my hand and we walked to the end of the aisle. Hanging in the archway there was another piece of paper, and a box!! Jacob then read a very precious letter to me. Explaining how my love was his life, and our lives were his love. After he read that to me we prayed. He prayed out loud such a sweet prayer. He requested blessing over our marriage, and for us to seek the Lord in all we do together. Then he said, "Now for the good stuff, and he grabbed the box out of the jar. He said, " I have not rehearsed this!" Jacob got down on one knee and he asked me to be his wife. He opened the box, and I said, "Its Prefect!" Whoops! But then I said of course I will.
