(Well, not a river, exactly, but a good, hearty, rushing creek.
Our favorite creek.
The one where we've spent hours wading, swimming, building dams, enjoying the natural water slide.
Now there's not a drop of water to be found.
Our ghost creek.
Hello, historic Texas drought.)
"Don't let this world around you squeeze you into buildings or books. Buildings are good. Books are good. There are times to be in both. But God created the heavens and the earth to be experienced, not just read about or lectured upon."
"You will grow in your understanding of God and His ways by going outside, observing, asking questions ... and then carefully searching for the answers. He will fill you with wonder and praise."
(a terrific book being read at night by the father and son in this house)
