How it all began…
It was a warm summer evening when Sarah was out reconnecting with some friends at Redstone when she met Stephen for the first time. Funny thing was that Stephen was also out reconnecting with his friend that same night. Sarah and Stephen’s conversation was endless and their laughter was intoxicating. They spent hours after their friends left (and after all the other patrons left) dancing to the music on Redstone’s outdoor patio! Sarah left that evening with butterflies in her stomach. And, it left Stephen wanting another dance!
On their first date to The Farmer’s Cabinet (go figure) in Philadelphia the following month, Stephen will always remember Sarah coming down the stairs of her 3-story apartment that evening. She looked absolutely stunning in her black summer dress. They greeted. Stephen escorted her into his car, walked to his door, took a deep breath and said in his heart, “Here we go!”
After their first date, Sarah knew there was more to Stephen she wanted to discover. She couldn’t get enough of him! From his kindness and positive outlook on life to his steadfast love for God, she wanted to be part of his life and he a part of hers! Stephen was amazed with how closely they aligned and how genuine and loving Sarah is. Then, they found themselves in love. A love divinely prepared. They challenge each other, support each other, and love each other for who they have been designed to be.
Since the day they met, the happiness and closeness they share with each other is beautifully unfolding. Their love and pursuit of the Heavenly Father has blessed them in their love for each other, their love of the farm, and their love for each one of you. That was exactly what they were seeking… and He delivered.
This is Love.
And she said yes!
Two years later, they decided to pursue ‘beyond organic’ agriculture on a breathtaking North Carolina farm. For a year and a half, their pursuit involved growing crops, raising chickens, and building the homestead. In early Spring this year, they set out on a camping trip to Hanging Rock State Park. Sarah would later find out Stephen had just a few more things planned! They set out on a hike on a gorgeous day witnessing two running waterfalls, a Red-tailed Hawk and Barred Owl, and 100+ year old stone houses.
They reached Hanging Rock Trail and started up the cliffside. At the top, the sun was shining, the wind was whistling, and the view was absolutely incredible. What a blessing! They took some pictures and sat on a rock in the shade ‘for a snack’. Shortly thereafter, Stephen read from the Scriptures, got down on one knee, and told Sarah he wanted to spend the rest of his days with her and asked her to marry him. With tears in her eyes and full of smiles, Sarah said, “Yes!”
