NC and FL pics!









Here are some pictures... we were busy! We roasted hotdogs, caught cool caterpillars, played in the creek, got flowers from my Uncle Bubba, ate at Nick and Nate's and Fat Buddy's, saw my nephew graduate, went to the beach, saw my sisters and nieces and nephews, ate fudge from Dillsboro, played "hide and go cowboy"- as Holden called it...., Had a family picture taken, and celebrated Father's day in between. Hannah made Jason shrimp bisque, salad with apple and berries, and peanut butter pie for dessert! It has been a very good summer so far!

At church yesterday, we sang a song with the words "I want to shine like the moon". I was really struck by the words... the moon simply reflects the light from the sun, just as we should reflect the light from Jesus into the world. That simple truth really impacted me, and made me realize I really need to be a better reflection of my Christ to others. Just something I have been thinking about.
Have a wonderful week. I have been scrapping some, and will try to get some of my recent layouts posted. I know you are all on pins and needles waiting.... :-)
