These are a sampling of the photos from our past two weeks on the road throughout Michigan and NW Ohio.
Sadly, DH's oldest brother died suddenly on September 24 just after his 72nd birthday, and so we traveled to the Michigan Thumb for the visitation, funeral service, and memorial service. Thankfully he died without any suffering, peacefully in his sleep, and knowing Jesus was his Lord and Savior. That is the best reason to celebrate LIFE. So, for a Christian family, saying goodbye to a loved one is sad, but it's also joy-filled knowing that we'll see Herb again in heaven someday where Jesus will give us perfect JOY.
After our Michigan week, we spent another week in Ohio with my parents and my Uncle Jim who visited from Colorado. There we celebrated each of their 80-something birthdays and saw quite a few relatives and friends.
I've missed our family SO much, as well as paper crafting and blogging, and I've missed my CTMH and faith blogging friends. I hope to ease back into a new routine soon while also awaiting the birth of our second grandbaby in a few weeks.
God is good ALL the time!
