What a Friend

There are some hymns and/or pieces of hymns that make me tingle. I LOVE hymns. Like... LOVE hymns, but some I really love. Like this one... so simple, sweet, and special.

What a Friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer.
Oh what peace we often forfeit
oh what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer

Lord willing I will talk about each line in the coming week.

She is everything I need

What I want to be when I'm married
and what my mommy is to daddy.

She's everything I ever wanted
and everything I need
When I talk about her I go on and on and on.
Cause she's everything to me.

Erin and Rachel take a Tumble

Erin was supposed to trip in this scene, that would cause Rachel to laugh at her and would demonstrate the enmity that is still between them. Well, Erin tried... but she fell and nearly tore her new dress/costume. Needless, to say I decided to find a better way to display what I needed to show. (Without killing my cast)

Date Night

Around here "date night" for Mommy and Daddy are very few and far between. So, they walk to the compost pile together!! Alone and quiet. Enjoying the only moment of peace they get all day. There are eight kids after all!!

At all costs, we kids preserve this time. You must plead your case before a jury of older siblings as to your reason for disturbing mom and dad. If you are found guilty of not having a good reason you are severely punished.... TICKLING.

So there you have it! Date night around here!!

Unloved and Unwanted

It grew up tall
and considered
by most
to be
a
weed.

Unloved
unwanted
it grew
and bloomed
but for what end

No hope
it just knew
to grow
the Lord
instilled in it
the desire
to grow

No hope
until
tiny feet
cut and
bruised

tiny feet
soft
and
sweet
warm breath
and
blue eyes

soft
warm
and
slightly
dirty hands

they reached
they grabbed
and the took
hold

they bent the
stem
and damaged
the leaves
the bloom closed
up

He knew not
what he had
done
He did it in love
took the life of
a
flower

that his mom would
know
how much
he loved her
and
what he thought
of her

He carried
it in his
hands

Dirty,
sweaty,
and
smelling of little boy

He gave it to
her
and she kissed
him
that was what he wanted
her kiss
her love
her smile

She put it in the
vase
No hope
the bloom would
return
but smiling at
the love
it was brought with

Later
that day
a smile lights
her face
she sees
him in
the yard

playing and
beside her
in the vase
it opens
and sheds
once more
some creamy
yellow on the
world

a weed
unloved
unwanted
picked
by a son
for his mother
loved
wanted

the insignificant
become significant
and life
goes on.

The Stills




These are all the production stills from the film so far. Some are better than others and some are funny while others are straight from a scene. But, ALL are funny!

Here you go!!

We filmed with Michael, in the woods, in the crawlspace, and up trees. However, we always had fun.

How Beautiful

How beautiful the hands that served
the wine and the bread and the sons of the earth

How beautiful the feet that walked
the long dusty road and the hill to the cross

(Refrain)
How beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful.
How Beautiful is the body of Christ
and as he laid down his life, we offer this sacrifice
that we may live just as he died:
willing to pay the price, willing to pay the price

How beautiful the heart that bled
that took all my sins and bore instead

How beautiful the tender eyes
that chose to forgive and never despise

How beautiful the radiant bride
that waits for her groom with his light in her eyes

How beautiful when humble hearts give
the fruit of their life that others may live.

(Refrain)
How beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful.
How Beautiful is the body of Christ
and as he laid down his life, we offer this sacrifice
that we may live just as he died:
willing to pay the price, willing to pay the price

How beautiful the feet that bring
the sound of good news and the love of the king

How beautiful the hands that serve
the wine and the bread and the sons of the earth

(Refrain)
How beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful.
How Beautiful is the body of Christ
and as he laid down his life, we offer this sacrifice
that we may live just as he died:
willing to pay the price, willing to pay the price

It's that time again!!
