Above and beyond the cool video you’re about to see, I’m thrilled for and proud of Joseph Gilchrist and Ciara Shaw. In light of pop culture’s sad attempt to dethrone God’s institution of marriage, its important we honor just what’s happening: two Christ-followers (a male and female), wishing to honor the Lord by covenanting together for life. (In the continually disturbing progressive model, today’s headlines showcase the National Cathedral in Washington, DC announcing they’ll be conducting homosexual marriage). And further, we must endeavor to honor those who are doing it right: honoring God, parents and friends in their daily lifestyle. If ever we needed examples for the upcoming generation, it’s now.

Cool marriage proposals have popped up all over the Internet. And why shouldn’t they? Any chance we have to promote marriage should be jumped on. And how much more when it’s people we know and cherish?

It was my joy to be apart of planning, staging, dancing in (said loosely), and editing the video for this event. Hope you enjoy it, too, and share with your friends and family.

Feel free to leave a comment for Joseph and Ciara below; I’ll let them know to check in and read them.

That was quite the ingenious move! So happy for those two. May have been a tear in my eye at the hand, or it could’ve been sweat. 😉 Either way, congrats, and God bless!!
