I need some help. I’m 23 and my girlfriend is 22. We’ve been dating for about one and a half years, and I’m going to propose here sometime.
I have an idea, just thought I’d run it by some of you, see if you think its a good idea, or if you could help me spice it up a bit.
She’s a school teacher (1st grade), so I thought I would try to get the kids involved.
What I want to do is to pray a novena with her throughout the school day, once every hour. I’ll start it with a small religious gift on her desk when she gets to school, with the first prayer. Then once an hour I’ll send another gift and prayer till the end of the school day which is 9 hours. I’ll have one of the other teachers pull a kid out of class, give him the gift and send him back in to give it to her.
At the end of the day, I’ll have someone pick her up and bring her to me. I’m thinking I’ll either propose in an perpetual adoration chapel or in a Church in front of the blessed sacrament. But I don’t really know what else to do with the proposal part to spice it up a bit. I’d like to do it in front of the blessed sacrament, because we have built our relationship there, with mass everyday together and many trips to adoration.
By the way, she is teaching at a Catholic school, and I think the novena will be to St. Joseph.
Any other ideas or variations would be nice, or if your a girl, would you even like this kind of proposal???
Thanks and God Bless,
