A full circle journey

This is a weekend of memories. It is a weekend of significant milestones. 

We celebrated my parents’ 60th anniversary. Thankfully we did it in July. Their actual anniversary is in January and we risked freezing rain at that time. 

All the family made it. It was an incredible blessing. New great-grand babies, new spouses, new members of the family were introduced. 

The personal treasure for me was the picture I had been waiting for the past 18 months. It was my dad, me, my son, and his son. Four generations. It was an overwhelming moment. 

A few months ago my parents had switched churches due to health issues and the need to not travel so far. They have returned to the church I started almost 28 years ago. Today I get to preach in the church I started. 

I am thankful for an incredible weekend of memories.
