Today was a really wonderful day.

My brother came home from serving in Afghanistan for the past 7 months.

My sister running out to hug Kev as he arrived at the house.

It was a great reunion. We picked up right where we left off.
I love my family.

Reunited and it feels so good. (Seriously. Look at my Mom. She's practically glowing!)

I had to drive home shortly after our family lunch so I could be back in Guelph for our staff team potluck that we were hosting at our home! And it snowed about 20 cm!
To be honest, I kinda felt sick about driving in that kind of snow. But I got onto the highway and about 1km into my drive the roads had cleared and were almost completely dry! I was in shock and awe as it had REALLY snowed for the 3ish hours I had spent at my parent's house.

And then my heart welled up with gratitude to God for taking care of me and showing me that of course he would provide for me and my family - be it with the safe arrival of Keven, or a smooth, easy drive home with both boys who sat quietly in the back of the car {Noah actually fell asleep!} or the wonderful time of food and fellowship we experienced tonight with our incredibly fun staff team.
As I listened to Chris Tomlin sing "Glory in the Highest" on the drive home I worshiped with my whole heart and felt the smile of God shine down on me - His daughter. Precious to Him and provided for.

And then we partied tonight with some amazing co-workers who are also some very good friends. I am {again} so very grateful to have such awesome friends and community in my life. Oh and laughter. Lots and lots of laughter.
And delicious food. :)

The dessert spread was far too decadent.

Thank you God for your abundant provision for me. May my worries fall away when I remember your steadfastness and may my doubt disappear when I think upon your love for me.
