Welcome to our humble, little corner of the Internet. Josiah and I would have posted earlier today, but we spent most of this afternoon loading hay trucks for a local farmer.
We'd appreciate if you'd pray for our brother Jonathan. A few days ago, he developed a really bad ear infection which has caused him quite a bit of pain and suffering. Please pray for his healing.
This week, we're posting photos from a recent trip we took with the Martin family to D.C.
Aren't you glad someone is keeping all those farmers in line?
This museum was very well done and I highly recommend that everyone visit it sometime in their life. Because of the museum's subject matter, I would advise discretion for those with young children. There are many things in this museum which will make you wince and want to turn away, but I believe it is important for us to see these horrors and consider deeply their implications. It was an especially sobering experience for me as I considered how we in America are involved in our own holocaust today. Namely, the murder of thousands of unborn children every day under the approval of our civil magistrates. As I walked through the museum, I saw many chilling similarities between the Nazi holocaust of the past and the abortion holocaust of today.
We need to pray that God will have mercy on America and bring us to repentance for this horrible abortion holocaust. I know it isn't a pleasant thing to think about, but inaction and lethargy on this subject is not an option for Christians. We must not sit idly by and do nothing while this bloodbath is going on. May God have mercy on us!
(BTW, that creature in the picture is supposed to be our oldest relative.)
So which one do you like better? And no, neither of us will be offended if you don't like our picture. ;-)

Ah, it feels good to get back to blogging! It's been a while, hasn't it? Well, you can blame the flu for the absence of fresh content on this blog. Recently, my whole family (myself included) came down with the flu. Over the period of a few days, our home turned from a busy place of work and play into a hospital ward with sick people lying everywhere. We were too sick to take any pictures of this exciting time in my family's life, so you'll just have to imagine what it looked like. :-)
For this week's post, we have something special for our readers: A guest blog author! Dale, our guest author, recently borrow my camera to cover the wedding of some friends of ours. Since most of our readers know the couple who got married, Dale made up a blog post for us to share with you all.
So we hope you enjoy the post. Remember, Dale takes full responsibility for this post. That means he gets all the praise and criticism. (OK, OK, Josiah and I did do some editing to Dale's original post, so I guess you can blame us too if you want. ;-)
Also, be sure to check out Dale's website: www.mountjoystudios.net (Dale, you may pay our commission in cash).
I'll now hand things over to Dale. Enjoy everyone.
The sanctuary as it was when I arrived at 2:30 on Saturday afternoon. Looks like we’re almost ready!
Meanwhile, back at the truck, Nicolas and Mr. R. ready the Extension Ladder (yes, that particular extension ladder deserves capitals – it’s quite the ladder).
Preparing to hang extra lights: “I was actually thinking it would work better over there, but since you’re the boss…”
