Son Worship

A needed respite.

Our trip to Florida gave us time to reflect, be still.
To rest in the sun … and to rest in the Son.

A family changed.
Grandma Joyce went with us — six weeks after Grandpa Paul took an
earlier-than-expected trip to Heaven.

Here are some photo reflections.


Treasures, in jars of clay.
(2 Corinthians 4:7-12)


For one day, Iowa friends gathered here, under Florida sun.
Presenting, Princess Anna …

“Garsh, Lydia.”
(At the Texas-style Mickey’s Backyard BBQ)


Hola, Donald!

(In Epcot’s Mexico)


Bonjour, Lydia and Anna!
(In Epcot’s France)


Ni Hao, Anna!
(In Epcot’s China)


And finally, …

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’s name is to be praised.
Psalm 113:3

Desde el nacimiento del sol hasta su ocaso, alabado sea el nombre del SEÑOR. (Spanish)

Du lever du soleil jusqu’à son couchant, Que le nom de l’Éternel soit célébré! (French)

从 日 出 之 地 到 日 落 之 处 , 耶 和 华 的 名 是 应 当 赞 美 的 !(Chinese)

In every tribe, and language and people and nation, let Your name be praised.

    I am a newcomer to your site, and I thoroughly enjoy what I have read thus far. There is so much to read, where do I begin. Your posting regarding your accident the scar (Y) that was left embedded on your leg, was and is, an amazing story. God is so awesome, isn’t He? I hope you have recovered well physically from that.

    I so enjoyed your pictures of this trip. It looks like your family had a great time together. I’ll be praying that God continues to touch you in ways that you never thought possible.

    Thank you for visiting me at my site. Your comment was encouraging. I’ll be back to visit again.

    My blessings to you,
