You Know It's a Good Day...

So many reasons to be happy in that one pic.

One final thought...

"God says, 'No, I want that soul to prove its power to live an unprotected life. I want it to be a thing of wonder like this little wintergreen in its pocket of poor soil among the rocks. I often plant My flowers,' He says, 'among rough rocks.'" - Amy Charmichael

(I am aware that this is not wintergreen!)

Let's Bloom! (In whatever soil we find ourselves.)

Thank you...

Thank you, Jesus.
Thank you for drinking the cup.
Even though You didn't want to.
Even though You asked three times if there was another option.
And three times You surrendered Your will to the Father's.
You drank deeply.
And suffered horribly.
For me.

Thank you.

I Rise...

Spring has officially sprung, and with the plethora of "new life" vibes floating about comes the realization that I must shake off the chains of my winter stupor and Blog! (That...and some friendly and not so subtle reminders from unnamed individuals. *Mom*) And so, from the murky sludge of winter's thaw...I Rise...I RISE... (Sorry, had a Maya Angelou moment there. Thanks to both of you who got it.)

Great Christmas. Wonderful family. Happy presents. Special times.

Magic Kingdom.

Tired bro.

Wide awake.


Big snow.

Days off!

Underground Railroad.

Special friends.

College Banquet.

Late curfews.

Band tour.

Spring days.

And there you have it. The picture book version. Greatly edited but adequate for today's reading skills. =)

Final thought for the day:

God is good, and as Solomon said, "not one word has failed of all His good promise." (I Kings 8:56b) Our job: know His promises. Know Him.

Just Guess...

...what my New Year's resolution might be.


Soup and Carols night...

Christmas Eve fondue...


More news of the holidays to come...once I push back from the table.
