Sleep, little Baby, sleep,
The holy Angels love thee,
And guard thy bed, and keep
A blessed watch above thee.
No spirit can come near
Nor evil beast to harm thee:
Sleep, Sweet, devoid of fear
Where nothing need alarm thee.
The Love which doth not sleep,
The eternal arms around thee:
The shepherd of the sheep
In perfect love has found thee.
Sleep through the holy night,
Christ-kept from snare and sorrow,
Until thou wake to light
And love and warmth to-morrow.
Christina Georgina Rossetti
Congratulations, Allison, Zach and Tristan Darnell

Thanks for all of your love and prayers, and I hope to hear from you all soon.
It was Friday the 13th, on a brisk Autumn Day in Black Mountain, North Carolina. Montreat, to be specific.
At 4:00 p.m., I took her aside and told her about all of the special things that God had done in my life on the side of that mountain, and wanted to add one more thing to that list.
AND SHE SAID YES!
So, we are shooting for March 3rd for a wedding date; for those of you keeping score, that is exactly one year and one day since we first talked on the phone.
Blessings and peace,
CONGRATULATIONS, DAVID AND JEN !!!!
