As a father......

I am so glad that my heavenly Father has compassion on me and loves me.   When I saw the picture of Tim crying with his two boys,  I thought of this verse and wanted to make a little collage of our sons as fathers.  And Mark as GRANDfather.    How comforting to be God's child !

Quiet Time in the Morning with Mama

Hannah and Lauren are getting up early with their mama these days----copying her wise example.

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  These words are to be in your heart.  Repeat them to your children.  Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up......."

"Daniel" and "Matthew"

Here are two of the nicest guys - I met them about two years ago in a small village where they were attending an "Agricultural School" - learning how to plant seed....and to PLANT SEED.  They come from families who taught them from a very young age how to love their Creator.   Now they are in Tianjin studying English and learning more.  The one on the left, Daniel, recently went to a neighboring country to share.   They are both from Inner Mongolia.
