A picture/video post to pass the time...

So, I still need some time to get the rest of my pictures and decide what I'm going to say about Oklahoma. I'll just say now that it was an amazing time, and I felt and feel closer to God than ever before. And for more than that, you'll have to wait for a later post.
For now, I'll post some pictures and a video of my nephews...I visited my oldest brother and sister-in-law and their two sons (almost three) on Monday, in their new homestead...which is really awesome. I hadn't gotten to see it before, but I like it a lot. And I took pictures. Still have yet to see kids as cute as these ones, except me when I was a baby. :) So, here's what they look like, and what they do.
Asher is the one with the blond hair, and Aidan's the one with brown. Aidan is three and Asher is 1, but he's turning two in October.

Okay. I can't resist. Jars of Clay's new album has some VERY good songs on it. And I love this one. So, if you get this in feedblitz, you need to come here and listen to this song. It's called Safe To Land:



Here are the lyrics:

Getting tired from all this circling
Not much grace left on a broken wing
I feel the wind trying to push me down
It happens every time I get to town

I search for shelter near the mines we swept
I guess forgiveness hasn’t happened yet
There are no words that I can say to you
That turn this careless sky from black to blue
So I’m asking you is it safe? Is it safe to land?
‘Cuz I’m not going far on an empty heart
Is it safe? Is it safe to land? It’s the long fall back to earth is the hardest part

I’m in no weather for apologies
I need your runway lights to burn for me
And if you say that I can come around
I’ll love you right, yea I won’t let you down, I won’t let you down

‘Cuz I’m coming home, if these wheels touch down
I’m coming home I’m waking you up in the middle of the night I’m not giving up
I’m gonna stay ‘til we make it work
We’re not going down even if it gets worse
We’ll work it out. Yeah we’ll work it out.
I need light to guide me in
Oh, Yeah is it safe?

  1. Nice pics! And you captured, for the first time on film, rare footage of the boys racing their vehicles in the wild.
