Be Still

My wife spent last week at her parent’s house in Tennessee with the kids.  While down there she spent a lot of time hiking through the Smoky Mountains, reading God’s Word and taking pictures.  The shots she took are absolutely gorgeous – from waterfalls to snow covered trees to the sun shining over the lake.

Prince Caspian – Living Water

The family and I went to see Prince Caspian. While I felt it was probably about 20 – 30 minutes too long and I could have done with the Telmarines having a little lighter accents I did enjoy it. The action scenes were very exciting and they did an interesting job of interpreting most of [...]
