This weekend has been a gift: nice weather, a chance to spend Saturday afternoon with my dad and sisters, a two-hour nap today, my church’s vote to approve a new building project, and today, my brother’s return home after an 8-month deployment. The video below from their local news affiliate features my brother and his family among others waiting for loved ones (Chief Petty Officer Andrew Costin, and Lisa, Dustin and Samantha Costin who all appear in the video.) Thank you, Lord, for so many good gifts.
