Miracle's Baptism, All Saints Sunday

Jenna and Shauna were asked to be the Godparents for both Miracle and her cousin Mariah, but Mariah's mom (5 hours away) was not going to be available to do it this day. So the baptism was just for Miracle. Shauna had to be gone on a prior planned family visit out of town, so Angela stood in for Shauna. Thanks to Dave taking the shots, the baptism is recorded, so both Shauna and - we hope and pray some day - Miracle's mom will be able to watch the baptism take place. In the first video, we are waiting for Angela to boogy over from teaching Sunday School!

We are at the font at the west end of the nave, having arrived there singing "Like the murmur of the dove's song."

Behind the Redwood Curtain

Howdy from up and over here. Unless you're north of here then it's south of there. You know. Nifty idea and I'm already behind in checking out what's on the site already. Besides some good looking people.

Nope - don't have any pictures. And that can be a good thing. Just hanging out on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Most of the chores are done and the ones that aren't can wait...and wait...and wait. It will be cool enough soon to fire up the wood stove, find a book, find the recliner and then the cat will find me. He figures it out every time.

Happy belated birthdays, Papa and Nana! Okay, how about Rob and Angela? You're way too young to be my Papa and Nana. See, aren't things looking up?

Fun upcoming event is that Carolyn and David will be coming down from Portland to spend T-day in the thriving metropolis of Eureka. One wonderful thing is that Ben and Alice V.Z. will be out of town [that's not the wonderful part] and the three of us will be staying at their house [now, that's the wonderful part]. My one bedroom home just would be a little cozy. And it's free!

Thanks for putting this together - should be a nifty way to stay informed.

The Truth...

" The family. We are a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking eachother out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that band us all together as family in the first place."
