It is never too early to develop the love of the land. Kids think “work” is fun when they are this age. Emily loved helping in her GrandDad’s cabbage patch. Now that she’s a big girl… I pray everyday that she will keep her feet on the ground, her hands close to the soil and her heart on GOD! Only 4 post to go!
Cousins… sometimes they are your best friend.. sometimes they are your first playmates… sometimes they annoy you beyond measure…BUT it’s that bond of family that makes life so special! (These are not my kiddos.)
Woke up this morning in Sasebo, Japan thinking about home a little… thinking about the family from church and missing Kenai, our black lab. I was still looking for a picture for today’s post and decided on this one taken a few days before we left .. .I thanked my friends for letting me take their photos with the family and their dogs and arranging such a sunset. Andrew said that he was only responsible for the first two… God had arranged the last. Thank you GOD!
“Who invited you?” “Sourdough” the donkey seems to be saying to Kenai. The feeder is on his side of the fence. Now this was the meanest donkey ever…. he bit the calves, chased Kenai and created havoc in the pasture. “Sourdough” no longer lives on SunnySide Farm.
Every family has a story. Do you know yours? Take a few moments and ask the where and who and why…. the more we know about our history just might give us a better view of our future. I have said it before and I’ll say it again. “Come see us… I’ll take your picture.”
Today’s post had to have two pictures. This is early December in North Central Florida. We have it pretty good here considering the winters that so many parts of the country have. No we are not “dashing through the snow on a one horse open sleigh” … BUT we can hop on the tractor and cut us some hay.
He does this all the time! If it’s warm and he sits for more than a few minutes….ZZZZZZZZ. His mother was exactly the same way. That’s okay I loved her and I love him. When a man works hard… a sweet nap on the porch with your dog is a good reward.
I had the privilege to photograph two wonderful families yesterday. I am happy to say that both are my friend and my family in the Lord. The weather was perfect and the sunset a gift from GOD. Everyday I stand amazed at His works!
