He Said, She Said

A banner day in the Bales' household....He said, "will you marry me?" and she said, "YES!"

Matt & Mallorye....newly engaged :)

Ok, so the story. Mallorye & Matt started seriously dating in November 2009, and it was quickly apparent that this was not just a passing fancy. I had an idea early on that this was probably the man that God had chosen to be her lifemate, but I wasn't sure if they knew it yet. {It didn't take them long to figure it out} Quentin & I have prayed since Mallorye was very little for God to bring just the right man into her life to be her husband...we knew it would take someone special...patient, loving, kindhearted, strong-willed....and as this relationship began to take shape, I knew..this was our prayer answered. Mallorye made a list a few years ago {at my prompting} listing specific things she wanted in her soulmate...and God provided.

Mallorye sharing her good news....


a lighter moment and playful fun!

I love the way he looks at her....and loves he so completely....

I see many days of laughter ahead for these two....

and ...the ring! He did an amazing job!
The proposal was definitely memorable. The short version;
He brought dessert. The dessert was chocolate chip cookie cake. It had written in icing "Patients is a virtue" {and yes I know its spelled wrong...was on cake too...which just fits Matt to a tee}. She thought he was being mean. He went down on one knee. Asked "will you marry me?" She said yes. Followed by a big kiss.

WOW! And congratulations! How very exciting for you all!

PS: My parents knew long before I did that John was "the one". Funny how God works like that isn't it?
