Here are some pictures I REALLY like...

Here's my dear daughter, Laura, with Jo, Heidi and Chris' dog (they live behind Ryan and Laura)... and Akon is taking a rest right behind Jo. (Akon is my precious granddog.)

Here's a picture Shea took during the reception of the father/daughter and mother/son dance.... Clearly I needed to take dance lessons.

Here are the flower girl (actually 'leaf girl', she dropped fall leaves), the ring bearer (he called himself 'polar bear'), and Camryn (Cami) before the wedding...They were watching DORA THE EXPLORER, which I highly recommend.

Here's Cami as a little lamb on Halloween... (That picture just makes me smile.)

And here she is with her granddad (who is now my son's father-in-law!), Dennis...These pictures just make me happy.
(I think pictures can make you happy, don't you?)

This makes me want to tell you (and myself) to focus on good things. Upbeat people. Wonderful memories. Whatever makes you smile.

And consider Christ as Lord and Savior.... cuz, whoa... we need a Savior.

Well, I'm starting to preach.

In closing, here's a quote I like by E. Stanley Jones...
"Your whole impact on your surroundings is to be a love impact."


This makes me think how the other religions in the world do NOT focus on LOVE.
And love is what we all need... desperately.

.... Now we'll have an altar call.

I love those pictures, too! Especially that Cami Lamb. SO darling!
And, I really hope pictures can make you happy, or I'm in the wrong profession!

Yeah, those are good pictures.

The reason why the picture of Jo and me is significant is that usually Jo is off the walls crazy. You've met her--barking, jumping, that sort of thing. We'll yesterday I was sitting in our backyard with Chris and Ryan and Jo just comes up and calmly sits next to me. She sat next to me without moving for like fifteen minutes. It was almost creepy how good she way being. So Ryan took a picture.

That's the story :)
