Beautiful Embrace

These people are beautiful people. They love to laugh & love like no other group of people I've seen.  
Do you see that sweet dad holding his precious baby - and some of his other children lined up beside him? Wow, what people to call family.  And those two joyful souls with delicate smiles - the grandparents everyone wishes they had - unbelievably generous with smiles, hugs, & wisdom.  
My mom, my dad, my brother up there, too - gleaming with joy for these precious people.  

I am quite overjoyed to have stood, hand in hand, as a part of this family circle.  They're a people of creativity, knowledge, delicacy, and warmth.  They're a people of Jesus.  
With hands linked in a beautiful embrace, we prayed to God - and I can assure you in that moment, that I was so blessed to be able to know & love these people.  Individually crafted by a beautiful Creator we stood there together, in our differences & our joy, and we gave thanks.
