In my second year of teaching Sunday school at Lake Don Pedro Baptist Church, a shy and kind of awkward 3rd grader walked into my classroom for the first time. His name was Casey and I have had the privilege of watching him grow into an admirable and Christ-centered man.
He went from attending Vacation Bible School to teaching it and he went from being a junior counselor at kids’ camp to an adult counselor at youth camp. He has since moved back East but comes home to visit like the devoted son he is. Our church family has even gotten to know his girlfriend and she too has burrowed her way into our hearts.
Casey called me the other day out of the blue. He wanted me to know that he has asked Meaghen to marry him and she indeed had said yes! However, as exciting as that news was, I was more stunned that he would take the time to call me personally and share his news. I felt so privileged and humbled to be included in the list of people he wanted to be sure to tell.
Thanks, Casey…you truly made my day. And congratulations! I wish you two all the best.
