Sunday Best: Homecoming

Jared’s parents returned home on Tuesday after serving as missionaries in Scotland for the past 18 months.  That’s right – they were gone for 18 months, which means they had never met Daniel in person.  It was so wonderful to see them again and to watch as they met Daniel and got reacquainted with the rest of us (5 children, 5 spouses, and 11 grandchildren).  Family reunions are always fun, but this kind of reunion is even better.  I know our kids have a deeper love and appreciation for their grandparents after seeing them make such a sacrifice.  I am thankful for their strong testimonies and for their examples as they left their family and comforts behind to share the gospel.

Meeting Grandma for the first time: LOVE!
