Farewell

We had a lovely farewell meal for our baby, who is going off for another year of school. She made pot stickers for us and of course the meal had to include a "pile" of tomatoes and two pieces of corn for each of us. This meal was a little eclectic to say the least! For the sweet finale, we had a blueberry/raspberry crisp using the berries from my Uncle J's garden - fantastic! He brought them to us last night and I think that a treat from his garden for DD before she goes off to school in the fall has become a tradition with him. Last year he shared some cantaloupe and part of his watermelon that had just won a blue ribbon at the Iowa State Fair - yes it was over the moon good! And so was this dessert!

On a much sadder note, we say farewell to a brother in Christ, a member of our church who was killed in a tragic accident today. We will miss his presence but rejoice in knowing that he is at peace with our Saviour. We give thanks for this comfort in our sorrow.
