A Little Preview

Saturday evening, it was a joy to celebrate Anna’s graduation from high school. Yes, it’s mid-year, but she worked hard to graduate early, instead of May 2011. Here’s just a small preview until we do the real post.

Rejoicing in Jesus,

Receiving her diploma.

Special gifts were given.

“Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved” (Philippians 4:1).
