Celebrations and more


Congratulations, Travis! Yesterday was convocation, since he finished in August (co-op program) Here's the proud Computer Engineer with his lovely wife, Katie.


And here...with his parents (ooh, that colour in the background makes us look soooo old!) This is a stupendous day. When the girls finished university those were also stupendous, but there's a little extra bit of wonder, gratitude and marvel for this one.
When Travis was 10 he had a head injury...one thing the doctor told us was that higher math would be impossible for Travis. At that point, we didn't care, we just wanted our son to awaken from his coma. And we entrusted his healing to God.
Here he is 15 years later, with straight A's in calculus, his favourite subject.
Just thinking about it makes my eyes tear up. God chose to heal Travis so completely, beyond what we could ask or think.
Praises be to our wonderful, almighty Lord.
