Voices live in every finite being,
Often undivined, near silence.
Hear them!
Hear them in you! in others!
They sense truth deep in all life;
They know the things true Pilgrims stand for.
Stand out!
Come to Him without the things the world brings;
Come to Him!
As a child and as a poor man.
He had all. He gave all.

Jacob's Birthday Party

He definitely had his day in the sun.
Uncle Caleb and Aunt Katie have a way of making one feel
like the center of the world. 

And this little center of the world can create some drama!

The flirt

The martyr

The cherub

But when we sang to him he was confused. 

And the candle held no meaning to him. 

Of course, we all enjoyed Uncle Jamie's coming to the rescue.

He wasn't too sure about the moon pies, either. Oh well. 

Charlie liked them.

Thanks to my mother-in-law for the decorations! 

After dinner he got some serious love from his aunt and uncle!
Who have you met recently who's bottom was greased so tenderly
by not one, but two loving people?
