21st Century Cowboy

Here's a shot that Joy took on our first flying date.  We flew up to the desert and had lunch, then got back in the plane and flew up to Big Bear at 6800 elevation.  Fun stuff

This is the newest "kid" in our family, giving Dad a kiss.  Amazingly he learned to walk the day he was born!  It'll be awhile, though, before his vocabulary gets beyond "Baaaa".  :)

Encouragement for Moms

Here's a wonderful encouragement for moms I came across recently:

The mother's work often seems to her an unimportant service. It is a work that is rarely appreciated. Others know little of her many cares and burdens. Her days are occupied with a round of little duties, all calling for patient effort, for self-control, for tact, for wisdom, and self-sacrificing love; yet she cannot boast of what she has done as any great achievement. She has only kept things in the home running smoothly. Often weary and purplexed, she has tried to speak kindly to the children, to keep them busy and happy, and to guide their little feet in the right path. She feels that she has accomplished nothing. But it is not so. Heavenly angels watch the careworn mother, noting the burdens she carries day by day. Her name may not have been heard in the world, but it is written in the Lamb's book of life. -- AH p.244.

Mission Pilot Miracle Stories

Here is a series of talks by David Gates, given in Wichita KS -- Aug 27-28, 2004.

These talks made a big impression on me and changed the direction of my life.  Listen to the amazing miracles of this mission pilot to Central America!  Our family listened to these files on our portable CD/mp3 player as we drove on a trip. 

Special thanks to Dan Tierney for encoding the files.
