Thanksgiving at Grandma and Grandpa Rowan's
i love little Laura's arms around Ava and Camille.
What greater blessings to give thanks for at
a family gathering than
the family and the gathering.
Long long ago dad turned the garage into
a wall-to-wall scrapbook. New photos
regularly are framed and hung. Everyone eagerly
delights in finding themselves in the newest additions,
as well as remembering past good times
amongst those that have been there "forever."

Skepticism is a religion very rich in
evangelists but very short in Saviors.
Great Grandpa Rowan, with
Great Granddaughter, Sevilla.
There are moments every day in family life
that in and of themselves would suffice
as the whole purpose of the enterprise.
This year we're having the words "There's more
gravy" stitched right on the napkins.
If you could find happiness by abandoning
those you love, exactly what would
you do with it?
What is certainty but complete faith, and how
then can faith not be the path to certainty?
