I determined in January to do a self-portrait every month. I really don't enjoy it--don't feel at all creative taking them, don't enjoy looking at them. But, now that I've done October: Only two more to go!
We are having the pleasure this weekend of hosting a missionary couple during our church's missions conference; this is Janet, who with her husband and two children spent some 15 years serving the Lord in Pakistan.
Ruth and I pray together every Wednesday for our kids. It's great to look at the Scriptures, worship, and lift up our kids before the Lord together, and I appreciate her faithfulness to this task over the years.
Our front shrubs were covered with these amazing, delicate webs, all damp from an early morning drizzle. I have some pictures that include a spider as well, but I loved this shot, which shows the cuplike structure of the web.
