How was your 2016?  We had a year of ups and downs, but what a difference a day makes! For our family, Christmas came early. A life-changing event occurred three days before Christmas, when on December 22, 2016 our eldest son Jacob Phillip proposed to his beautiful now-fiancé  Jane Reynolds.

After much dreaming and planning, Jacob surprised Jane by taking her out to a romantic dinner to their favorite Houston Sushi hotspot, Uchi for their 14 month anniversary. When they finished dinner they meandered over to a place that it is near and dear to both their hearts—the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

Waiting anxiously in the wings for the happy couple to arrive were family members and a few friends. We had a wonderful photographer and longtime family friend Madeleine Frost there to capture our special moment.

As Jacob dropped down on one knee, and asked Jane to marry him we were all there to witness and share in this special occasion.

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.- Proverbs 31:10 

We look forward to Jane becoming a part of our family next year. She is absolutely precious. I often tell Jacob he has chosen well. Jane exemplifies the woman who fears the Lord found in Proverbs 31:10 ESV.

I don’t know what 2017 has in store for us, but I am sure that there will be quite a lot of wedding talk.

  3. What a beautiful bride she’ll make! They look so happy, I love when both families of a couple can come together and celebrate the joining of the two groups. So often it can be the other way around. Congrats Jacob and Jane!

    P.S. I love “Daughter in-love!”

    1. Thanks @Chloe! She is beautiful inside and out! We have been blessed to be a part of the entire process. Our family accompanied our son to purchase the ring, and I helped my son plan the engagement and after party. Fun times! ❤️️
