Time in the village moves on but the village appears to stand still. The people grow old but their habits stay the same.
Jeppe has found a girl that doesn’t tease him. He was married in the church by the new pastor. The old pastor retired and the new pastor was installed when we had Lukas baptized. Stephen and Nohr stood with Jeppe and when they took communion, Stephen and Nohr were included.
“Nohr, do you see Michael?”
“Yes, He’s smiling. I saw him place a hand on Jeppe and Karen’s heads.”
“He was blessing them. I think Michael will be in their lives like He has been in ours.
We held a wedding celebration for them at the Tavern. For us it was a joy to see Jeppe so happy. I think Jeppe will always be in our lives and now Karen as well.
Lukas is looking forward to attending the Gymnasium. He is doing very well in school and is well liked. Nohr said he has a few admirers. He said he wants to be an engineer like his dad.
Aunty and John have been doing a lot of traveling and are considering buying a place in the village. They'll probably move when the lease is up on John’s apartment.
Jennick and his wife are doing quite well. He has fixed the roof and now has two cows, plus several chickens, which Lukas provided.He missed a few settings hens. Nohr wants me to teach Jennick how to sing to the cows. They seem happy and are expecting their first child.
Nohr and I couldn’t be happier. Looking into the sky, I saw Michael. He smiled and then he was gone. I knew that Michael would always be there for me, when I needed him. I’m not sure if Nohr saw him but I’m sure Lukas did as I heard him say, “Michael.”
I have enjoyed writing this and as all authors take certain liberties, I took my share. It is one of the neccities about creating fiction. I have enjoyed your comments and as always I have learned from them. Denmark is a beautiful country. I found the people there very friendly. Thanks for reading and commenting.
