Hello Folks, 
This post is a little delayed, but I do hope you enjoy.
The 40 days for life kicks off again!
As the campaign kicks off again, I am reminded again of the actions of William Wilberforce as portrayed in the movie Amazing Grace. What drove him? What compelled him? Why did he have the passion that would not let him stop?
Gotta run folks!
As Always,
Love in Christ Jesus,
Michael & Rebekah & Baby

The visit draws to a close ...

Working on "The blog"

Of course, deciding which picture is "the best" is such the trial

While Melissa & Jordon flirt with the other team, I make a desperate come back. (side note ... .... I missed)


There are many who have made the blog, but few have gone to the lengths of this young lady who sprained her ankle just to be on "the blog"

Well, perhaps that was not EXACTLY her motive, but either way ... it worked.

Good stuff

Too early to make any serious arrangements yet, but, never say never.

Me father the grandfather

Playing Balderdash the game of unusual definitions

Our visit draws to a close. Thank you for coming Melissa and Jordan & Melissa. I love all three of you!

Happy Birthday Anna

Video chatting with Amanda & Cari straight from London

Hello Darling!

Hitting the beautiful fields of Dorchester

Fall has arrived in force!

A visit with the Millers

Have you ever seen such clones?

One thing is for sure, Matthew is a man of many talents

Honeymoon II

With the weather turning, it was time to get away for a pause ...

Camp food (well, short term camp food)

In my element


Preparing our accomodations

Our accomodation: One futon and one SUV = one killer camp site

With camp set up, we set off, starting out the trip with the sad tale of the man who once was but ... as the Lord has Given, so the Lord has taken away.

With the Old Man gone, the only thing worth looking at is a visitor center from days gone by. So, we take note of the designs and make mental notes for some future vacation home.

Atop Artist's Bluff


The signs of the changing season


You were my queen in calico, I was your bashful barefoot beau ...

With night falling, I dig into boy scout skills.

A beautiful sight

With hot dogs just itching to be eaten, we wait for the fire to burn down to coals and share a meal of a different kind

Now THAT is camp food!

A morning view of the nearby creek

As nice as the fire was the night before ... in the morning it is even better

The perfect breakfast

"But roast apples are not much good without sugar, and they are too hot to eat with your fingers till they are too cold to be worth eating ... But the spirit of adventure was rising in them all, and no one really wanted to be back at school" Prince Caspian - C.S. Lewis

With a rising spirit of adventure, my wife and I explore the Flume

"So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it." Willy Wonka

The stunning view encapsulates us 'till we are wrapped all about.


Pressing forward

Would you believe it? ANOTHER waterfall.

Look out after lookout!

Look OUT!

Another adventure ...

The passage way is conquered

Some one needs a hug!

"If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden  
If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the LORD" Proverbs

And THAT is what drove William Wilberforce

Mount Liberty - With the Old Man of the Mountain gone, we turn our attention towards the profile of President Washington.
