For those of you who have followed my discussions regarding my daughter Amanda and her boyfriend Mark, I wanted to let you know that a prayer was answered last night. My mother-in-law has agreed to meet Mark. Amanda is extremely excited and burst into happy tears when her granny agreed. I just wanted to give you an update and ask you to continue to pray today that things will go smoothly. I have told Amanda to not get hyper, just go in and introduce him and let things go from there. Thanks so much for listening and God Bless!! SheliaLee

Oh, I had not heard about your daughter in a while. I am glad to know that she and Mark are still together.

Hi Rozie!! Yes hon, they are still together. He still comes to see her every weekend. She didn't know until Saturday night that he wanted to come see her Memorial Day, but she was definitely happy. :-)

That's good. I'm glad she is at least acknowledging she at least needs to meet him before making her final opinion of him. I hope everything goes well, and I hope that Amanda knows whatever happens, it is what she and God think that matter most. But I know how important it is to want a grandparent's approval.

You are right Amber, and Amanda is praying that God's will be done in her relationship with Mark. She told me that if she ever had any feelings that make her think the relationship isn't right she would break it off. I believe in God answering prayers. When she came to the service last night to hear Amanda sing I started praying and so did Amanda and my mother. I had a feeling she would say something to Amanda about seeing her today and I was right. When Amanda talked to her, though, she didn't tense up or get in a huff at all like she had done previously. Amanda was so excited when she got home I thought she was going to hyperventilate. I had chill bumps when Amanda told me what she had said and all I could say was "Thank you Lord!!!" Amanda called her granny to see if it was okay to bring him over and she said "Sure!!!" When Amanda got off the phone she burst into happy tears and I couldn't help by cry myself. She loves her Granny and DOES want her approval but she loves Mark too. It bothered me to think she might have to lose her granny. Maybe she thought about that too. I'll let you know how it goes. HUGS!!

I'm sure this day is an exiting one for all of you. I pray that everything goes smoothly and that your mother-in-law is accepting of Mark. Everyone deserves to be happy and it is appears Amanda is happy with Mark.

Thanks so much Terri!! I will keep you posted about how it goes. I know for sure it was an answer to prayer last night because I sat there during the worship service at church and started praying for her (she came to our church because Amanda sang a solo last night). She told Amanda afterward "I'll see you tomorrow." That was when Amanda told her she has a date today. The conversation kept going smoothly though and Amanda told her it was Mark. I thank the Lord for answering our prayer. God Bless hon!!
