Two weeks ago, we made a quick run to WV for my grandmother’s funeral. She was 89. I got to see a lot of family, mostly cousins, that I hadn’t seen in years. We’ve had a family reunion around Christmas time for about as long as I can remember. But for most of the last 20 years, my little family has lived too far away for me to make it in at that time of year. It was good to see everyone and remember Grandma.

This past week had been spend in preparation for a wedding yesterday. It was a beautiful day. To the best of my knowledge, everything went off without a  hitch. I know at the end, they were definitely married. After the wedding, we came home, rested, and then headed out for a graduation celebration. There’s a lot going on this time of year.

Yesterday was also supposed to be the rapture, at least according to one group that been publicizing a lot. It hasn’t appeared to have happened. May we extend grace and mercy to those who were wrong in their beliefs. May others extend grace and mercy to us when we are wrong in our own.

I’ve actually been trying to post for most of the last week. I don’t know what’s been going on. Safari and WordPress don’t appear to be on speaking terms. I’ve switched to Firefox for this post, but even that wasn’t working a few days ago. If anyone might know what’s going on, please contact me.
