Latest and Greatest

Dad met his latest two great-grandbabies at our son’s wedding. Front to Back, L to R: Becca with son Caleb (2 mo.); Dad; Mary holding daughter Evelyn (2 yr. - toddler Dad had previously met); Sara with Mary’s baby Gwendolyn (2 mo.). I love this picture of all the different generations!

Floral Legacy

Mom came by her love of flowers from her mother, Alma. Alma always had gorgeous flowers such as the bouquets you see on her porch.

Find Your Wings

This was song for all the mother-son dances at my sons’ weddings.  I am proud of the way they are each “finding their wings”. (Lyrics are below the layout.)

Find Your Wings by Mark Harris

It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold

So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth

And if I never told you,
I want you to know
As I watch you grow

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings

May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way

May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings

It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings

King of the Waterfall

One of the reasons our boys like Gooseberry Falls so much is the ease and fun of climbing the rocks around the falls. In this photo, Steven stood at the top, looking like the king of all he surveyed.

Fishing Grows on You

John caught his first fish when he was just two years old. He was so afraid of the tiny sunfish that he had to hold Harry’s hand while I took the photo. Twenty years later, John caught a huge pike in Canada. He didn’t need to hold anyone’s hand then!

Our Responsibility to the Earth.

Earth Day is Friday, April 22.  This page is in honor of that day.

Journaling:
God gave the human race the earth to work the land and take care of it, to fill the earth and rule over every living thing. This year for Earth Day, let us consider how we each can fulfill our God-given responsibilities so the earth is used for mankind’s good as well as preserved for future generations.

Scripture:
The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. (Genesis 2:15)

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Genesis 1:28)


Inspired by Scrap Girls 4/19 template sketch (at the bottom of the blog post); Amanda Fraijo-Tobin: Glitzy Blue Collection Mini (papers); Brandy Murry: ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Dramatically Lifted Photos (frames and shadows); Ginny Whitcomb: Through His Eyes Embellishment Biggie (greenery); Ginny Whitcomb: World’s Best Dad Embellishment Biggie (leaves, flower); Photos: Wikimedia Commons; Fonts: Euphorigenic, Greetings (TT), Constantia, DJB Jennifer Script1

Shapes

From time to time, I take pictures of the shapes of things around me that catch my eye. A number of years ago I made a file for this type of photo with plans to create a layout with them. I finally did! This page was inspired by an abstract piece of art, so it is not in my usual style. I think it's kind of fun and artsy.


Materials: Some papers modified. Emily Abramson: Honey Garden Paper Biggie (April Scrap Girls Club kit); Brandy Murry: Captured Papers; Brandy Murry: Idyllic Papers; Font: Corporate HQ

I submitted this page for the 4/16 Weekend Wildcard Challenge to create a page based on a selected piece of art. I used the idea of circles and bold colors.
