a short word of blessing and gratitude

Our latest family photo – look how we keep growing!
I am way too tired to do much in the way of blog posting today. So, instead, how about this new family portrait?

I can’t find the words to say how complete the family feels now, with both Naomi and Andrew finding the exact complement to journey with them through their lives.

Rebekah and I look at this photograph, we see Craig, and David, and Alicia – and we can only feel grateful and blessed.

Just thirty-three years ago, when we celebrated the beginning of our marriage, it was just the two of us. Look at the consequences of that day now!

So we’re headed to church this morning, at Providence Presbyterian in Virginia Beach, and we will look at one-another and smile, and we will thank God for the gift of this family.
Rebekah, Derek, Andrew, Alicia, Naomi, Craig, David…
That’s all – DEREK
