Baptizing a new home with family love

Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart,

Acts 2:46

Eventually the mountain trip with our grandchildren had to come to an end, and we had David and Beks back home in Orlando by mid-afternoon Sunday. Naomi and Craig are still in the process of unpacking and moving in, but it’s obvious they have landed on their feet in the new neighborhood. It’s a beautiful home, with a lovely layout, lots of space, and just a short – traffic free – walk to the elementary school nearby.

We had hardly been in Orlando more than an hour or so when the house was christened with a big family party.

Rebekah’s brothers Joe and Jesse both came, along with spouses Cheryl and Heather, plus our nieces – Jordan and Sarah, along with our nephew Seth, and also Grand-Myrt’s sister Velva. With 14 people around the table, plus Geoffrey, we had noise and stories and more.

Naomi outdid herself with a scrumptious feast, and the house felt well and truly baptized with love.

I will try to document the Orlando experience with some photographs today, but in the meanwhile here are some images from yesterday.

Peace, and more peace – DEREK
