These are the words we spoke on our wedding day to serve as a mission statement for our family

from a soft whisper to a thunderous roar, the call of God beckons beyond our comforts and securities. Where ever it leads, our family will follow the uncultured, undomesticated call of our God. A God who would never give us safety at the price of significance. We will raise our children to always chase after the Kingdom of Jesus of Nazareth – A man who had no home, yet lived in the Father’s love. Understanding the call and cost, we choose Jesus above all else.

Old fashioned day at the beach

We have some friends from New Mexico visiting right now and thought it would be fun to take them to the beach. Although there were closer beachfronts, we decided to head about an hour north to see if we could find some waves. We stopped off for the day at Crystal Beach, a spot that Rose and I had surfed before; sadly, there were none to be had. Apparently the multiple storms that have passed through these last two years have altered the sandbed, so the waves are only up on rare occasion and breaking so close to the beach that by time you were riding it, you would be seconds from eating sand.

But we made the best of our day at the beach anyways. Since the best camera you have is the camera at hand (and I only had my phone camera at hand), I decided to add some filters to help soften the poor pixilation.
