Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! ~Philippians 4:4
The last half of November is filled with legendary travel and joyful reunions for my husband, Danny, and me. He just finished processing gorgeous photos of scenery we enjoy along the way, so I'll share those with you at a later time. First, I want to focus on the main purpose of our journey: Seeing our family who now live in Raleigh, North Carolina!
When we arrive at daughter, Sarah, and son-in-law, John's, place on Saturday, it's definitely a time to rejoice! The hugs all around are indescribably long and longed for. When Virginia, pictured above, throws her arms around me, I think she will never let go, and that's absolutely fine with me. I find myself in this moment recalling every embrace we share during our visit; a visit that now seems more like a dream than reality.
But here are some undoubtedly realistic moments.
Alexandra is amazed by this unabashed greeting when she states, "He doesn't know you, but he knows you!" In other words, Finn has never met you, but he knows you are people he can trust because he senses you love him and love us.
