man of war

This is Lincoln playing army man.
Army man with a binky.
He's not the prisoner
He's the soldier.
Except he's not sure he's doing it correctly.

When you're the 6th out of 7 children, you learn to camouflage yourself and blend in... you know, fly under the radar, remain in the shadows, and find the cracks to slip through. However, this little stinker has done everything but remain incognito. He's always up to something and doesn't care if anyone knows it-- more often than not, he WANTS you to know it and broadcasts his antics throughout the house. Loud and proud would be a fitting description for
Private Lincoln.

It doesn't get any better than this! I think you should promote him from Private to Corporal!

This brings tears of happiness to my eyes! My 2 sons did much the same the contrast, binky and camo....then when your son ( mine) does grow up to be a Marine and goes to war, well....perspective and pride, and love...and lots of prayers and thanksgiving!Snuggle and cuddle them to pieces now, these times go by way too quickly. Lovely blog.

Hi! Yes, I am doing the Bible Study with my Sunday School class. Its great!! The Dvds are awesome but we break up each session into 2 parts since we only have an hour each week. About 30 minutes or so for the dvd and 20 minutes to discuss and talk about it. I am behind on my daily homework so I did alot last night and could not stop!!! It was so good. I love it. I love the way Beth takes you all over the bible researching and learning. I recommend it. You can always buy the series, watch it yourself at your home and if you feel its not for you(or the ladies at your church) sell it on ebay or something. Hope this helps<3

No, its only a few pages of reading with some bible look-up and answering some questions for ever day (5 days) but if they are like me and forget... then it can pile up BUT I did almost all of it last night because it was sooo amazing. So interesting and Beth Moore has a way of relating and speaking to women that is very honest, transparent and biblical. I wish you lived loser, you could browse thru my book.=p. You won't be disappointed!
