The last time I saw my brother, he had a huge white beard and gray hair. He lets it grow out over the winter (to help with warmth, he claims) and then he shaves everything off in the summertime.
These pictures are randomly entered here - not in order at all. The photo below is of Pass Creek Canyon. Stephen and Julie took us up this canyon.
They had a winter, spring and summer like we have had - a lot of cool weather and lots of rain as evidenced by the green growth. The morning was very chilly and Wes said, "Well, fall has arrived."
The benches below are on the side of Stephen's yard. The Lost River runs to the side and back of their yard. Julie and Stephen were in the midst of moving to this place when Tessa died. Julie said that one morning she went out to the benches and just sat and listened to the river and let the Spirit comfort her. She said, "I thought to myself, 'The Lord knew exactly where to place me.'" I, too, spent a little time sitting on this bench alone letting the sound of the river calm me as the breeze blew through my hair. I could feel the presence of God very close by.
