“Remember not the former things,
nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.”
“You have heard; now see all this;
and will you not declare it?
From this time forth I announce to you new things,
hidden things that you have not known.
They are created now, not long ago;
before today you have never heard of them,
lest you should say, ‘Behold, I knew them.’”
Camp Dixon was beautiful in so many ways.
And by beautiful, I mean that:
Laughter was heard.
Tears were shed.
Games were played until the wee hours of the morning.
Bacon was cooked over a crackly fire.
Bibles were read by flashlight.
And new friendships were strengthened.
I took this back in April after my brother had just played a game of Mud-Pit Tug-Of-War. I thought it was a great entry for the “All Boy” theme over at the “i heart faces” contest.
My sister loves to swing on this bar attached to a tree in our yard.
With her tresses of hair flowing back, she has spent many carefree moments of happiness flying though the air.

“Or who shut in the sea with doors
when it burst out from the womb,
when I made clouds its garment
and thick darkness its swaddling band,
and prescribed limits for it
and set bars and doors,
and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?”
– Job 38:8-11
“Have you entered into the springs of the sea,
or walked in the recesses of the deep?
Have the gates of death been revealed to you,
or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth?
Declare, if you know all this.”
– Job 38:16-18
Do you not fear me? declares the Lord.
Do you not tremble before me?
I placed the sand as the boundary for the sea,
a perpetual barrier that it cannot pass;
though the waves toss, they cannot prevail;
though they roar, they cannot pass over it.
– Jeremiah 5:22

Today I took advantage of the lovely little woods behind our piano teacher’s house to get some autumn shots.
