Andrew's Visit

Earlier this month,  from  May 7th to the 13th, our son Andrew visited with us. He was stationed in Seattle while in the Coast Guard and has continued to live there since leaving the service. This was the first time we had seen him in two years. It was a great visit. Him and I were originally going to take a road trip together, destination unknown, possibly Las Cruces, New Mexico but with Mother's Day on May 10th we decided to stay close to home. Below are just a few of the photos that we took.

The strongest tie and the greatest force are family and love. No matter where we are, what we do, the mistakes we make and the triumph over life's challenges--it is family and the wisdom of knowing the strength of God in our lives. You are blessed and have been given the grace to know what is important and central in your life. May you all be blessed and in His care. Mike (in Oregon)
