A Brave Pledge

"I promise concern for others.
A willingness to help all those in need.

"I promise courage--courage to face and conquer my fears.
Courage to share and endure the ordeal of those who need me.

"I promise strength--strength of heart to bear whatever
burdens might be placed upon me.
Strength of body to deliver to safety all those placed within my care.

"I promise the wisdom to lead, the compassion to comfort,
and the love to serve unselfishly whenever I am called."
~Firefighter's Pledge

Not too far from where I live, there are firefighters gathered
from all over the country serving others. They put their lives on the line
to try and save the lives and homes of Texans. One
firefighter, 51 year-old volunteer firefighter Greggory Simmons has already lost
his life. I often take it for granted
that we are safe from fires, but some aren't. Some
put themselves on the line to keep us safe. Not to mention, they are
spending Easter away from their families and friends
to keep us safe.

Well, this is actually my
Monday post. But, I'm leaving for East Texas
early in the morning, and I'm not sure how available
internet is there (if it's available at all).
So, it's early. :) About the picture, I have to give my sister credit
because I would never have seen this fire truck if
she had not noticed it. Thanks Grace!

Happy Resurrection Day!!!

A Thought for Thursday

You fear God when
you truly understand who He is. And if
you understand who He is, you know you can trust Him. Therefore
you no longer fear anything or anyone, but
God only.

"The fear of the Lord leads
to life, and whoever has it rests satisfied; he
will not be visited by harm."
~Prov. 19:23

Hobbs {Family Portraits}

I am really excited about these family
pictures!!! (By the way, this was my first official family shoot!) :)  I had
a lot of fun spending the afternoon, errr evening, errr whatever 
time 6 o'clock is, with the Hobbs family. :)

This is Chris and Amanda Hobbs, and their three cute little
kids: Christopher, Price-Daniel, and Mercy.

Aren't they cute!?

Christopher is in the first grade, and he can run fast!
He's a caring big brother, always watching out for little brother and sister.

Price-Daniel loves having his picture
taken! He also watches out for little Mercy.

Mercy is soon to be two, and she
is full of energy! She has such a cute smile!

Amanda and Chris are so cute together. Amanda is my cousin, who I 
grew up around. Chris is an Army veteran. He served
 in Iraq a few years ago. Thank you, Chris,
for serving the USA!

Thank you, Amanda and Chris, for giving me the opportunity
to shoot your family pictures!
