High Heels Ain't For Boys

Does anyone care to guess who this is?
I can tell you that my legs haven't been this small in.....ummmm....years.

When Nathan came wobbling through the house with these on, I couldn't resist snapping these pictures. He usually wears daddy's boots, but traded them temporarily.

End Times

I am writing this post with a very heavy heart. There is no doubt, we're in the last days. The news is full of children being destroyed daily. Everytime I think of the six year old child that was put in a garbage bag after being violated, I am sickened. Utterly sickened. There are no words to describe the outrage I felt upon hearing of this. This ungodly crime was committed by four adults. Justice. I want to see justice in this case. I pray this doesn't go unpunished or fast tracked out of the justice system. Don't get me wrong, I know they need Jesus as their saviour as much as I did, and I pray they receive Him, but I want to see justice.

And then today. Today while I scanned the pages of the newspaper, I find out that a seven week old infant has had his genitals mutilated! My dear Lord, in heaven. Although the mother has claimed her dachshund was responsible, the police are not buying it. HIS OWN MOTHER! My God, My God. Yes, we are living in the end times. We have so much to pray about. Please join me in praying for the protection of our children all over. It is with much pleasure the devil is going about to destroy. Especially one who may be the next Billy Graham or anyone else the Lord has anointed to bring worth the word. There are countless other horrific crimes we may never know about, but God sees and knows them all. I can't imagine the grief of our heavenly father.

I know these are in random order, but does anyone want to guess where we spent Saturday?

My boys. Notice what Nathan is clutching.

My wonderful hubby still going strong after 4 hrs. sleep.

This is a pond in a little sub.

This is Caleb's prize shell.

And here he strikes a pose.

This is Amanda "striking a pose" she is such a cut up!
Can you see the seagull? The camera didn't capture the beauty of it completely.
Beautiful surf. This is the same beach hubs and I started vacationing at over 20 years ago, right after we were married. We choose to bring our children here because it is one of the smaller beaches that caters to families and one that is the last to sell alcoholic beverages. A great big plus to this!
This is a little cafe by the beach. We always walk past it to get to the ocean, but we have never eaten there. Isn't that strange?

My handsome son collecting shells.
I love my babies!

Nathan with one of his "finds".

Nathan was so cute picking up shells. He didn't want to be disturbed. These birdies were looking for food. We didn't bring anything with us today. They can get really bad in the summer. We didn't see many of them on this trip.

This is the pier that leads to the water. It is a nice walkway now, compared to what it use to be. It's still a little narrow, but then again, they think everyone is a size 0. *grin*

This is what I saw after descending the pier. Caleb and Amanda's shoes. They were in a hurry to get the first season sand between their toes.
Shell searching. It wasn't crowded on the beach today. Of course it's not time yet. Just wait until Easter weekend.

My beautiful girl. I am soooo blessed! We had such a wonderful day! I praise God for His blessings on my family. It is by His grace, and His grace alone.
I hope you all have enjoyed my little photo album. I would have like to organize it better, but it's getting late and I wanted to get it on. I have a long day ahead of me. We have Pastor Appreciation tomorrow. Maybe that will be my next post.
