"...and his mother kept all these things in her heart." (Luke 2:51b)
Words recorded 2000 years earlier, but this which mothers do has not changed over time.

March 22, 2014 Celebration
|Ben and Catherine 35 years! Left to right: Kiera, Sharl; Anita, Don, Kie, Tim, Ben, Ed, Catherine, May, Jonah and Kimberly.|
Saturday evening we gathered to celebrate Ben's & Catherine's 35 years of marriage.
Double Happiness really; we also had a new family member to talk about.
Of course David and Winnie were expectedly absent; home from the hospital a few hours earlier with newest family member, Audrey Carol.

"A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains for ever."
90 years may have passed, but nothing has changed between new mothers and their first born child.
|1924 - A new mother when this photo was taken. My grandmother holding my father|
|2014 - A new mother 8 days ago. Winnie holding my granddaughter.|
I was born early enough and have lived long enough to see and know the people in both these two photographs. God's favour is upon me.
