In the background, a nondescript European hillside and the tracks of a U.S. Army vehicle. On the slope below you can see two happy young men. That’s my Grandpa on the left... smiling sixty three years ago on May 8th, 1945 — the day Germany formally surrendered.
(My Dad sent this to me, today. Thanks Dad!)

(OK, so my hair is completely unmanageable... sorry about that.)
George and I just got back from a trip to KY to visit the family + his grandparents (Grandma and Grandpa H.) who were visiting from Brazil. It was the perfect trip minus the multiple hours driving (remind me to fly next time) and the too-short time with family.
George and I came back refreshed and reminded that all of life is to be about serving our Creator and that no "small" aspect of that is without meaning and purpose. I didn't realize just how much I had missed being around "the siblings" and spending time with them, talking, laughing and catching up on the missing time since our last time together. Grandma and Grandpa H. talked with us about the things that life and Scripture have taught them, as they've ministered in Brazil. They reminded me that the Bible is living and applicable for all of life.
So that's the very brief summary of a densely packed weekend.
And now, much to my delight, my buni sister (Madison's fairy loving aunt) is here to visit (Madison)! :-) I'm sure the time will be too short (as well), but I will savor every minute we have her here!
