our whole family got together on saturday to celebrate and at the very end as i was saying goodbye to my grandpa, he made clear to me, as he always does, how precious life is and how blessed our family is to all be in good health and how that could change at any moment. so in this moment, i want to pause and express my gratitude to my grandparents for their marriage, for the family they have made, for their legacy of following Christ, and for the importance and priority they have placed on the covenant of marriage. i know full well that their times have not always been peachy, but through it all, all sixty years of it, they have remained faithful and love-filled towards one another. truly something to celebrate! something i do not take lightly and never want to take for granted.
& just a few fun images just goofin around with my cousins during our celebration below, with thankfulness,
