I broke my own rule today. I usually do not use the computer on First Day (Sunday). However, we are traveling this week, and I doubt I will get another post written during the week, nor even look at email. We are headed to New Brunswick for three reasons: One, to see the new granddaughter and visit with the children; two, to look for a place to live next year; three, to get officially married in a civil ceremony.
Middle-aged rebels that we are, we had a Quaker-style wedding a while ago. No officiant, no paperwork. This is proving unsatisfactory to bishops and the government of Canada, who are not romantics in any way. So off we go, with a pile of papers to prove who we are and what we are.
I am a borderline romantic, so I made a dress (lavender in colour, white cape and apron.) I am finishing tonight a new black vest for Nicholas. It’s probably a little hilarious that we are getting married in the courthouse and not in a church, but this is the quickest way to resolve the not-officially-married dilemma.
So signing off for about a week…talk amongst yourselves. Pray without ceasing. Follow Jesus and keep to the middle of the road.
