great video from when the boys were small

This video was taken after I got a box of bridesmaid dresses to try on for my sis-n-laws wedding.  I opened the box, went to the bedroom and tried them on.  I came out, maybe 10 minutes later, to find this....  BTW, to this day, I still occasionally find popcorn pieces around the house!

Hopes I have for loving my children well...

  • Let there be much spontaneous celebration verbally of every hopeful sign of life and goodness in our children.
  • Let us forgive them often and be longsuffering.
  • Let us serve them and not use them.
  • Let us lavish them with joyful participation in their interests.
  • Let us model for them the joy of knowing and submitting to the Lord Jesus.
  • Let us apologize often when we fall short of our own Father’s requirements.
  • Let us pray for them without ceasing.
  • Let us saturate them with the word of God from the moment they are in the womb (the uterus is not sound proof).
  • Let us involve them in happy ministry experiences and show them it is more blessed to give than to receive.
  • Let them see us sing to the King.
  • Let us teach them relentlessly the meaning of the gospel in the hope that God will open their eyes and make them alive. It happens through the gospel (1 Peter 1:22-25).

oil paintings

"I pray that you being rooted and established
in love may have power to grasp 
how wide and long and high deep is the love of Christ."

This is a lilly that I enlarged by at least 100% 
until the background was more abstract.  
I wanted the lilly to be true to form and the 
background to have a more whimsical effect.
