Boyds {Family Session}

Friends of our family's for many years, the Boyds have been missionaries on the other side of the world for a year now.  Darron travels to far-flung, remote villages by tiny plane and jungle canoe to share Jesus with our world.  Ruth stays home with four boys, homeschooling, providing medical care to their village, and learning how to survive in a third world country.  I greatly admire Ruth's courage and faith.

While home on furlough this summer, we were given the joy of spending snippets of time together here and there, relishing our friendships and sharing our hearts.  I am so glad that we live in an age with internet, otherwise the Boyd's would feel so much farther away than they do.  God bless you, Darron and Ruth, Aubrey, Andrew, Jacob and Nathaniel.  We are already looking forward to your next furlough!   

Jerry {Lifestyle}

Jerry turned 80 years old a few months ago.  In anticipation of this great milestone, Jerry's daughter asked me to capture her dad in his every-day life at the retirement center where he lives.  And so I happily followed him around one morning.  Jerry's genteel spirit definitely compliments this lovely place.  I asked him, "Do you wake up every morning feeling like you're on vacation?"  "Oh, I do.  I do!" was his response.  

Thank you, Jerry and Pam, for the beautiful morning you shared with me.  And Jerry, I hope you are able to enjoy many more happy birthdays here!
