{pretty, happy, funny, real} An Ordination & A Graduation!

| a weekly capturing of contentment in everyday life |

A few photos to practice contentment this week (aka, an update in this Series of Fortunate Events.)  I'll be writing about both of these life-changing events as individual posts, but for now - as we are knee-deep in packing boxes -- a few photos of the celebrations.

| Natalie's Graduation |


Natalie's graduation came in three parts:  graduation party on Saturday night, Baccalaureate service on Sunday afternoon (yes, just a few hours after Brian's ordination service), and graduation ceremony on Thursday morning.  I have many more words to say about this sometime when I get a quiet moment to put feelings into words.


| Brian's Ordination into the Anglican Priesthood | 


We celebrated Brian's ordination in several parts, but have photos from only two: the Sunday morning service with Bishop Todd Hunter and a small, beautiful gathering at our friend Shaun & Katie's house later that evening.  (p.s., we also used that party to pray a send-off for our daughter Kendra because she left for her 9-week mission in Africa the following morning.)

Have YOU captured any contentment this week?  

I'd love to hear about it!
