In what can only be described as the best love story I've heard of in a long time Elizabeth and Jordan were married on Friday, November 11th at a winery/Greek Cafe in Athens, TN.
It was beautiful and tender and blessed by the Father. What a journey to find each other. What a blessing to watch the relationship sprout at Sukkot and be confirmed by multiple witnesses and then for the wedding to happen while Jordan's family was here for Thanksgiving. And what a joy to see my daughter find true love in a Godly man. What I saw of him at Sukkot confirmed to me that he had the character, conviction, faith and substance of the man I've always dreamed my daughter would one day find.
So imagine this ... we are camping...and he falls in love with her while she was in her camping "looks homeless" clothes, with no makeup, with a son and two parents in tow in a trailer. Yup. That's exactly how it happened. No pretenses at all on either side. Raw and real, just the way it should be.
They are currently on their honeymoon close by and we have Aidan. He keeps counting down the days until they will come and get him. For this week, they are getting their home established and enjoying some 'no kid' time.
What does this mean for us now? Well, since our driver went and got married we can't drive the trailer back to Canada. Not that we were wanting that though. We have found our 'tribe' down here in Tennessee and love it. We are secure in our campsite over the winter. And at some point in the future they will have more children and we'll want to be here for them. So, we are looking into staying here permanently. That will require something other than a tourist visa so that is in the works. We are praying and waiting on the Father for further direction. We are at a crossroads. We didn't anticipate this when we set out on our adventure of a lifetime roadtrip. But here we are and we are thrilled with where the Lord has led us.
