Family Secret!

 It was another beautiful fall day in the valley.
Silas had shared with me the  'family secret....'
They were all excited about revealing a secret they had with their Dad.
The two little boys were schemingly involved in a rubik cube puzzle.
The final clue said, "Will you marry my Dad?"

 Jeremy and Tara announced their engagement with plans of a wedding scheduled for May.
Last summer Tara was introduced to our family 
and it was important that the grandparents approved of Jeremy's girlfriend.

A few weeks ago, Jeremy brought Tara for 'the blessing' on their future marriage.
And Oma Helen read...from Oswald Chambers, "Still Human"
"Whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."  1 Cor. 10: 31 (November 16th.)

 We share your joy and will continue to pray for both of you.
Welcome Tara to our family.
We look forward to getting to know you.

Families are like branches on a tree.
We all grow in different directions,
yet our roots remain as one.


  1. I am SO happy for them and for your whole family!

  2. It is so wonderful to see your family supporting each other in this new branch in the family tree. Congratulations and best wishes to Jeremy and Tara. Wishing you all much joy in your preparations!
