Adam Smith  An amateur attempt at a rousing round of Picture Pages. I photograph my kids a lot because they're basically the extent of my friend base. iPhone only

Night Shirts. Their new obsession: raiding my closet for old tees to wear to bed. #NewNightlyRitual

#HopeStands. Every night since the first hurricane hit, my kids ask to see pictures of the damage.
.
One of them always inevitably asks, "This is real? That's a real person's house? That's a place where people live?" It's so devastating that they can't fully wrap their heads around it. I'm not sure I can either.
.
And we've prayed.
And we've donated.
From a distance.
Because...we don't live there.
.
What gives me hope is that there are great, gracious, kind, caring, Christ-like people who do. And long-term, well after the nightly google search curiosity of my kids dries up, and the supply trucks & stop rolling in, churches & pastors & congregations called to love their city no matter what will be there to help pick up the pieces. And those are the folks I want to see resourced.
.
Rick Warren (of Saddleback Church) & Kerry Shook (of Woodlands Church) are holding events to help local leaders do just that this next week. If you are a pastor in the greater Houston area, please do what you can to attend & be encouraged, informed & resourced. Because your community needs you. You are the front lines.

Baseball + Bolthouse. Summer is here, which means logging a lot of time at parks. The sun, the smell of the fresh cut grass, the people watching. And, a delicious ice cold drinks from @bolthousefarms. Right now if you buy any 2 of them, you’ll get a free $25 ticket credit for a live event, which is awesome. For more details, check out: www.bolthouse.com/offers #sponsored

Rock Top Flex Off. The baby & his big sister hamming it up on a sunset hike.

Dish Mountain. Anybody else put off doing dishes until you're pretty much out of clean ones...or is that just us? But even if you draw the short straw on chore day, the work ain't half bad when you've got #mom & #AJAX on your side. #ad

Out The Door. Boys sprinting spooked out the back of an old church.

Looky. One thing we like about where we live is the ability to spur-of-the-moment hike the hills behind our house. It's a big bright view & you can see for miles. And with my sweet new @TransitionsLenses, I've said goodbye to squinting into the sun forever. And you can too.
