Happy Birthday, Luke!
I have a great son-in-law. Only trouble is he lives too far away. He bought a chain saw for himself for his birthday this year and I wish he lived close enough that we could use our chain saws together! (Little known fact...that's what I got for my birthday last year!) Luke will probably be cutting firewood and wood for pole barns with his, while mine is mostly used for pruning and cutting down small trees.
Luke loves living in NY state where he and Erin are now. The mostly rural, small town atmosphere is much more to his liking than the Boston area. He's loving his work learning to be a farrier (that's a person who takes care of horses hooves, makes horseshoes, etc.) and also doing lots of carpentry work. They're in a wonderful church and feeling more and more settled all the time. I feel so thankful for the way God has led and blessed Luke and Erin.
They'll be closing on their new house soon and Luke's really looking forward to working on it. There is a lot of fixing up to do - painting, ripping up old linoleum and carpet to get to the wood floors beneath, and some other more involved changes. I can't wait to see how he and Erin transform their new home to really make it theirs! I'm so happy for them.
Happy Birthday, Luke. We can't wait to see you all at Christmas time!
