|My Three Sons|
Matthew, Benton, and Scott - Cathedral Ledge, N. Conway, NH
This is a picture of "My Three Sons"...no, not the old TV sitcom with Fred MacMurray and William Frawley and three boys I can't remember...but MY Three Sons: Matthew, Benton, and Scott. This is my favorite picture of my three sons...why? Well, I believe it is the very last picture I have of all three of them together before they left the home-nest for good and went their separate ways in search of whatever life God had in store for each of them. At this particular time Benton and Matt had already left home to go off to college, and Scott was still in high school.

God says to us in Jeremiah 29:11,
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."I have applied this verse to myself many times, and believe I can also claim it for my three sons as well. During these days of tremendous unrest in our world, we are all feeling a bit anxious over the future of our nation and our world...but I still can rest...and trust...
"Bless the Lord, O my soul; and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's." Psalms 103:2-5Yes, my heart cries out with the Psalmist,
