This was at the base of the mountain.
Sometime life takes you to the mountain top, but usually we live most of our life in the valleys. We grow strong in the valley, therefore, when we experience the mountain tops we breath in large
breathes of wonder.
Benjamin and I had the unexpected wonder of ascending to the mountain top in Kerrville, Texas. We were both moved by the craftsmanship, the view over the city and the truth along out path. Benjamin took it all in and then asked to come again to show his dad.
These were at the top of the mountain, over looking the city below.
These was laid out in the shape of a cross. Bronze statues at each point of the cross. Scripture was in bronze along the walk way, in three different languages. The final bronze hasn't been created for the center of the cross. The final bronze will be Christ second coming. He will be mounted on a white horse and the top will look similar to the first pictures of His second coming.
This cross is 77 feet and 7 inches tall. Benjamin is standing at the base of this metal-opened cross.
There are times that words can't express what you heart is feeling. This trip up a mountain is one of those times. I watched as my son soaked in the presence of the Lord. We read each scripture along the path and I explained each statue. We brought Bill back that night to see the cross lite up and shining over the Hill Country of Texas.

We started out with Joshua using a hair clip (isn't that what they are made for?) as shark teeth to bite at Uncle Ben. The car just filled with laughter.
As mentioned before, we must live in faith and not in fear. We must pray and then leave the results up to the one Who knows the end results. What better way to look at the discouraging news in the eye and say, "I have the courage to live", then to do just that.
Now second generation comes to the same pumpkin patch that we have visited for 16 years.
Bill took a half-day off from work. After reading a quote on Kim's Field of Dreams, I decided the quote was right. I was tired of just trying to make a living without living. My husband has had his feet to the income wheel, without a break, for over year. I invited him to come join Benjamin and I in taking two of our grands to the pumpkin patch.
Tradition...you all get measured. What is funny is this is probably the only record I have of must of my children's heights. Benjamin started off. I had picked him up from school so he is wearing his school uniform. This was teacher/parent conference week. May I say, my youngest is doing excellent in school. The reports were just overwhelming praise and grades for Benjamin. He has adjusted well to school and I am starting to also.
This is Joshua's second year. He says "cheese" when you want a picture and holds the "cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"
Age 3 and has his Grand Mommy's heart wrapped around his finger.
This is Maverick's first year and I was determined to get him measured. He wasn't too thrilled to stand up with us whistling for him to look up at Grand Daddy. He will pay me back for this one day.
He us all smiles, which just melts your heart.
Picture with my boys and Joshua with "cheeeeeeeesssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeee".
Now I must do something about that grey in my hair. I am never pleased with pictures of myself, but I am so tired of all the years of not having me in anything, that I am determined to change that. I was at all those events...................just taking the pictures.
Grand Daddy - Dad... enjoyed the day with us. He and Mav became friends, which is what I called their bonding time. Little Mav just giggled and giggled with his Grand Daddy. Benjamin and I were running to keep up with Joshua. Bounce houses, wagons, hay ride, pumpkins, snow cones, horses =living life.
I think this says it all. We all just need to rest in our Father's lap and look for His guidance and relax.
This eleven month old seems to understand that concept.
Have a wonderful weekend.
