a few more and a song...

I just thought I'd share a few more pics of the crazy guy. This makes me want to take more, but I only need so many photos of him.










And I thought I'd share some lyrics that I really love every now and then.
Sometimes a light surprises the Christian while he sings;
It is the Lord, Who rises with healing in His wings:
When comforts are declining, He grants the soul again
A season of clear shining, to cheer it after rain.

In holy contemplation we sweetly then pursue
The theme of God’s salvation, and find it ever new.
Set free from present sorrow, we cheerfully can say,
Let the unknown tomorrow bring with it what it may.

It can bring with it nothing but He will bear us through;
Who gives the lilies clothing will clothe His people, too;
Beneath the spreading heavens, no creature but is fed;
And He Who feeds the ravens will give His children bread.

Though vine nor fig tree neither their wonted fruit should bear,
Though all the field should wither, nor flocks nor herds be there;
Yet God the same abiding, His praise shall tune my voice,
For while in Him confiding, I cannot but rejoice.

--William Cowper

    Are you a photographer? And what kind of camera do you use?

    He is TOO cute, Crystal! And how could you not continue to just take tons of pictures of him. He makes it so easy!

    Hope you are doing well!

  2. Love, love, love this kid! Love the boots too, I guess I should because I think I'm the one who got suckered into buying them.
