fall + family + farm

2013-10-13_14-37-37_790
In October, some of my extended family came together at a fall festival my aunt & uncle host every year at their farm. There was music, homemade cider & cookies. It was a beautiful day. And I got some special pictures I think. They do not cover the whole story, how a family has hard & cracked places. How complicated real-life relationships are. How disappointment can ache. How years go by and time does not heal.

But the hard & cracked places do not tell the whole story, either- and I see hints of grace at work.
