Sweetness of Life

Often things just happen in life that make you, well, appreciate life. My brother, the youngest of twelve children, married for the first time this month at the age of 33. He will agree that his Jenny was worth the wait.

It is my mother, however, that I keep seeing in my minds eye when I review the time spent together with family for his wedding. What a pleasure it was just to see the joy on her face as she witnessed the marriage of her youngest son. This, through the Grace of God. You see, a year and a half ago she had cancer.
I am grateful to my dear husband for capturing the above photo.

My sister married when she was 40 of course thinking the time for children was passed for her. Today at 47 she is the mother of baby Isaac. When she was a younger woman the a doctor told her that it would be best if she waited to have children since she had curvature of the spine. God's timing is perfect.

"As for God, his way is perfect..." Psalm 18:30a
