Congratulations to my son Micah and his fiancé, Kya! Micah proposed at Monument Rock in Monument Sunday morning, then came to our house for breakfast to share the news. We snapped this photo.
There is much to be said about the power of pictures. Call me old fashioned if you like, but I believe that, unlike most other media, a photograph best captures the evidence of joy and harmony of the moment. Even video fails to capture the moment like a still-shot photograph. I can stare for hours at each face in the picture above. Even Elijah with his goofy face in the front has a story behind it, and I bet you could make a meme out of it.
Micah proposed at Monument Rock, a cool rock formation not far from our house. This rock has a lot of sentiment for the Jeub family. This is our family’s signature “walk” that we enjoy together. It is the inspiration behind our family business’ logo at Monument Publishing. It also was perhaps the most therapeutic walk following our daughter’s falling away four years ago. While we were getting lampooned online by the angry mob, we together took a walk and snapped this picture:
I have a meditation on this later this week. For now, we are celebrating another engagement in the family. Kya will make a wonderful addition to our family.
