Just before leaving, I asked Mark if he could please take a picture of my boyfriend and me.Â I thinkÂ he did a great job!
I am so very thankful for Allan.Â He is a wonderful husband and a great father.Â He loves Jesus and is trying hard to raise our family (me included) in a way that helps us to know Jesus better too.Â He works hard, but makes the time to play with us.
He is also extremely good looking and a lot of fun to be around!
This tree and all the assorted colored leaves still clinging to its branches caught my eye at the park today.
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
When Mark was little, he was given a denim hat.Â He wore it often, so when I took him for his two year old pictures, I had him wear the hat and his favorite pair of overalls.Â When Andrea got her two year old pictures, I had her wear the hat and overalls also.Â Of course, now I had to get pictures of all the kids wearing the hat and overalls for their second birthday.
The place we got matching pictures from is not here anymore.Â So, we set up our own studio today and attempted matching pictures. The colorized picture will eventually be put into a frame with the other two year old pictures.
