He cried and was comforted; he wet and was dried; he hungered and was fed; he longed for closeness and was nestled in his mother’s arms. Thus the infant Trey learned to trust and to love.
Against conventional wisdom, the young couple resolved to stand against the drumming of society and continue to invest themselves and their time in raising Godly arrows for the Lord.
Soon, another arrow was added to the quiver and Trey was joined by one sister
and then two.
He learned to be kind by looking outside of himself and in the process, learned to be forgiving.
When asked by the family physician what he wanted to be when he grew up, young Trey boldly replied, “A daddy.” As a young man, he wanted to walk in his father’s footsteps, trusting and loving his papa and patterning himself after him, working alongside him, sharing his dreams, learning to be a servant leader; becoming an encourager.
Often, his parents would take time during their devotions to pray for their children's future spouses, knowing that their time in discipling their family would quickly draw to an end and their work would be finished.
He learned the worth of work and how to be selfless. He learned the importance of truth and to be a defender of it.
All the while, he was learning more of how to be the man that God desired him to be.
At just the right time, that special person would enter his life and God would bring them together.
Consulting with her father, their courtship began.
They soon recognized that they undoubtedly shared a great deal in common, a reciprocal attraction, and centrally, a committed common faith in God! Following a short courtship, the young man knew that the beautiful young lady was the one that God intended to complete him . . . to fill his missing parts . . . to be his life partner . . . to be his helpmeet. Trey had found his jewel! Within the first few minutes of the New Year, shortly after the stroke of midnight, Trey respectfully dropped to one knee beneath the glittering lights of the rose arbor. The brisk winter air livened the night at the perfect spot nestled in the curve of the lawn at Providence Prairie as he slipped a beautiful diamond ring over Clair’s awaiting finger.
Glorifying the Lord each day for God’s fingerprint in their relationship, the two will share their first kiss as they are wed on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2010 in an intimate ceremony in Indiana. They will celebrate with family and friends at subsequent receptions at dates to be announced.
