The Last Bit

We are in the midst of preparation for a holiday trip.  Always it seems the business before we go is accelerated in the last days before we go.  My daughter had another piano recitalDSC03678.  We nearly missed it over some confusion about where it was being held but she walked in there and literally just sat down and played beautifullyDSC03679.  She absolutely never lets us down.  Next a long time family friend got married in our little churchDSC03680.  It was so beautiful in there…people really came together to prepare it all and it was stunning.  Last but absolutely not least Lovely and I celebrated our 20th anniversary on the 17th.  I’ve been trolling a jewelry site for some time and finally found exactly what I wanted for usDSC03682.  In reflection before our trip I now more than ever realize I couldn’t do it without Jesus Christ.  All the dust of life will settle…he will eternally remain.  Never forget the reason for the season my friends.

    1. Of course I remember you! We've been on vacation for some time. During our time away I neither blogged nor commented. All my activity was limited to FaceBook.
