New Faces, Old Faces

We had new faces and old faces at the Wiuff family reunion on Sunday. There were the two new babies that you see in the pictures and Rebekka’s fiance Jordan (getting married on Saturday!). The numbers of first cousins was down this year…eight, I think plus Alan and Shawn’s family. Only Bob and Daylene and their kids (minus Tabitha) were there from the Norgaard clan. Dean, Arleatta, and their kids, Beth Ann, all of Connie’s family, Paul and Joanne with Michele’s family, Randy and Joan with Bill, Debbie, and Jon and I with Tabbi and boys. Mom, Bud, and Betty represented the brothers and sisters. So we did have 4 generations well represented which is pretty cool. It was a beautiful day and nice to be outside as well as inside. There was playing on the playground, shooting hoops, scooter riding, and some baseball practice.
Thought for the day
We are blessed with a family and a heritage that we can embrace and appreciate. God has been faithful, but we must carry on. We must always remember that righteousness is not genetic. We must always be faithful to teach and train the next generation and lead them to salvation. There are no automatic passes just because it’s “in the family”.
