In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free,
While God is marching on!

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Another delightful thing about our recent trip out West was the obvious bond of deep affection I saw between Melany and our daughter Donna. They spent a lot of time together over two weeks sewing and making various crafts. I'm sure there were a few tense moments, but you can tell how much mother-daughter love went into the finished product!

It's such a blessing that, despite the years and the generation that separates us, we're able to relate to our children, and they with us, in good humor, genuine care, and love. So many families today are riven with animosity and alienation, between spouses, between parents and children, and among siblings! May our family always be whole and "together" in spirit, even when we can't be so physically.

So sweet! I can only imagine the laughter and great fun they had, sewing these dresses! Love the photo!

I love that picture! We had so much fun and I miss my "mommy time!" Thank you dad for sharing her for an extra week!
