Living A Simple Life-Part 73: Joys of Family

A couple weeks ago, we headed out for a weekend away to visit family and friends. It was so refreshing to be surrounded by loved ones!

We were able to share Enoch’s baby dedication with many of our extended family and dear friends. It was a “family dedication,” really, as these dear ones surrounded us and laid their hands on us in prayer, while we committed to raising our son in the knowledge of his Savior.

Our children were able to experience the simple joys that their grandparents love to share with them.

Gen was thrilled to explore her grandparents’ garden, and they taught her how to pull up carrots! She savored all the delicious produce they’ve grown; including munching on a homegrown apple and tomato, along with the sweet carrots.

Enoch was cherished in his grandma’s arms, as she sweetly rocked him to sleep in her rocking chair. (He had been pretty fussy with traveling and the hiccups, and she lovingly soothed him.)

Gen enjoyed discovering new books to read, and she curled up with Daddy in the armchair for a quiet time.

Calvin and I both savored the abundant shades of green and yellow, as we were surrounded by the beautiful leaves in the woods, and the crisp fall air. We enjoyed late nights of visiting with family, and even a couple silly rounds of Mad Libs, while sitting in front of the woodstove.

We thank God for His abundant blessings!
