The weather warmed up, it felt like a spring day in the final days of 2021. With just a few hrs before Bronwyn departed, we climbed up our backyard, into the steep forested mountain, and took some photos. It had been 3 years or so since we had a decent family shot.

Lord willing, we will see each other again fall 2022. We are trying to be more intentional about planning connections, and space for building heritage. Our Creator has shown us to be a family within Himself.. and we honor our image when we gather in loving unity, rejoicing in the stories emerging in our lives.

My parents have arrived, speaking of family. We look forward to some final 2021 days by the fire, sharing stories, and giving thanks for His kindness – also eating some good food!
