This afternoon my aunt and uncle celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary! Isn't that just amazing? Many blessings, Uncle Steffen and Aunty Jane! Family and friends were invited to an open house this afternoon to share in their joy. It was so wonderful to connect with extended family and see an aunt and uncle from as far away as Australia, and talk with cousins from all over B.C. I come from a pretty big extended family and though we don't always see each other, nor can we all gather together at one time, a day like today is still such a blessing. Family is pretty precious and over the years we've shared many joys and sorrows, made a lot of memories together, and been able to sing, and laugh, cry, play, talk, and just be together on occasions such as this one. And we are part of an even bigger family - the family of God! When there are joys we can celebrate together, and when there are hard times we can support each other. It just humbles me and totally encourages me to know so many of you, all part of the large family of God, are walking this journey with me and my family. Thank you for all your love and care, and your continued prayers. Great is Your faithfulness, O God, our Father!
