Love Is A Beautiful Thing

The question is asked, "Can anything be more beautiful than a boy and girl clasping clean hands and pure hearts on the path of marriage? Is there anything more beautiful than young love? "
And the answer is given, "Yes, it is the sight of an old man and woman finishing their journey together on that path. Their hands are gnarled, but still clasped; their faces are lined, but still radiant; their hearts are are bowed and tired, but still aflame with love for each other. Yes, there is something more beautiful than young love. Old love."
(Author unknown)

I (Lana) snapped this photo of my grandparent's intertwined hands at a family gathering recently. Nearly fifty four years in, they are still in love.
People like that are my heroes. :)

Random snapshots from January

 First off, let me apologize for not posting in *forever*. No, I really have no excuses. Sorry!
Here are some moments captured this past month and a half....

 Playing a *hilarious* game with lots of cousins and friends...

 We got together with extended family to have a "work day" on the farm. Lots of progress!

 We were thrilled to have some great friends of ours, the Bontragers, stop in with us while on tour! We were blessed by their music and the great fellowship!

 This was during the tile laying project... don't we look fabulous?!
 Sadly, (and I'm sure much to the guy's consternation) I (Lana) can't remember which of them killed this dude.... but isn't it impressive anyway? :)
 The whole tile laying crew at the end of the project, *including* the dogs. :)

 I am seriously going to try to post more frequently after this, I promise. Hold me to it, ya'll!!
