This was a year marked by loss and change. We are still reeling from the unexpected passing of my father-in-law in August.
This photo represents some key events in 2016. We said good-bye to our golden retriever in January, and adopted a sweet labradoodle mix puppy in June. In October we moved back into the home we built, after four years renting our friend's smaller house.
Pictured: Sitting on the hardwood floor with our puppy, who is a great comfort to my husband.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27 ESV
