Can I just tell you how much I love my new daughter-in-love. I hope I don’t embarrass her but I just had to share.

I had to go by their home one day last week, to sign some papers. Of course, it is beautiful. She has done a wonderful job of decorating. But, that is not what I came away with. I called Hal on the way home – in tears. “All I can say to describe it – is in one word – PEACE.” There was peace in their home. It is filled with love and peace.

For this mom, and new mother-in-law, I was blessed. What a joy. What a blessing. What an answer to prayer. Many prayers.

Thank you, Brantley. You are a treasure. Jonathan calls you his little puzzle piece – and I agree – You complete him. And it shows. It is evident in your lives together and it is evident in your home. PEACE. Completeness. Unity. Joy.

It truly was a “No Greater Joy” moment.

That is just precious and brings tears to my eyes... I pray for a wife like that for both of my boys...

I love your new blog design ~ it's great!

What a sweet trio of daughters ~ and what a joy to find peace in your children's home.

By the way, thanks for the info on Chico's ~ I went by ours in Chandler, AZ and found a few things but certainly not the plunder you walked away with a few weeks ago!

Have a great weekend.
Blessings, Cindy

Oh how I pray that for my boys (and my girl).

Very encouraging to see your fervent prayers answered.

What a beautiful statement! Thank you for sharing. I pray to feel that peace years from now in my sons' homes with their wives. I pray that my mother in law feels the same way about me.
