Give me my scallop-shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My script of joy, immortal diet,
y bottle of salvation.
My gown of glory, hopes true gauge,
And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

~Sir Walter Raleigh

A hiker, walking for pleasure, likes to choose between several alluring trails.
The pilgrim desires only the road that leads home.

Blessings On Our Little Lad

If I take the wings of the morning,
and dwell in the uttermost part of the sea,
even there there shall thy hand lead me,
and Thy right hand shall hold me.
~Psalm 139.9,10


  1. I need to give full credit and heart felt thanks to the Nana of the boy in question for this wondrous photo!

  2. Very sweet photo, and it makes an adorable blog banner. :)

  3. ...that's cuz he's adorable! Yes, I am partial.

  4. Once those two little girls show up, poor little Joshua is going to freak out.

  5. But he will still be the only boy and the eldest of all. He will always have that edge. What is more, he's a sweet natured child and hopefully he will take it all in stride.

    Even more, he is such a thorough boy that the entrance and contrast of elfin princess types will only showcase his strengths!
