Perspectives | July 2016

Others may see this as a simple photo of a man at the bottom of the steps looking at his phone.  I see much more beyond the scope of the frame.  I see a man who has had great influence over a school district, & many families. A man who has a great heart for children and young adults.  I see a man who has always been governed by truth in everything that he does. He has led with much patience and wisdom always exemplifying a humble spirit preferring to be in the background quietly working even when he held the title of Superintendent.

This photo has special meaning to me for several reasons.

  1. It was taken at Whitehouse High school….a building he was heavily involved in constructing.  The building where two of our three children attended and graduated high school.
  2. I have very few photos of my husband in his element at work and am thankful to have captured this moment in time.
  3. This photo was unplanned and he was totally unaware that I had turned the camera on him.  We were actually at the school to photograph our youngest daughter receiving her high school diploma.

When education has been such a huge facet of your life, especially at one place for so long, it makes me feel like his retirement is the “end of an era” making the end bittersweet. However, I’m looking forward to the next chapter with great anticipation and the blessing of having him around a little more.

The Legend of the Bluebonnet

The rain brought forth the grass,  Among its blades flower of blue to be a sign for all the time of a love so pure and true ~ Author Unknown

We visited the Bluebonnet trails in Ennis, TX.  It was nice to get away and enjoy the day admiring the fields of lush wildflowers and make some fun memories with family.  Below are just a few landscape shots.  The images do not do them justice!  The fields were just beautiful!

Perspectives | March 2016

Feb 2016-96

We love to visit Mrs. Lee’s Daffodil Garden in Gladewater, Texas and try to make it out there each spring. Lately my plate has been very full with long to-do lists, but when amongst the fields of daffodils I am reminded of this passage in Matthew 6.

25 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? 28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin,29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! 31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
