..if the tree fall toward the south or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be...
Ecclesiastes 11:3

This is a picture I shot on Christmas day..of two brothers, Mark on the left,
his older brother Scott in the center and Dorsey, my husband on the far right.

Scott and Mark were just young boys around
10 and 11 when we moved into the neighborhood in 1973...

I got to be a good friend of their mother, and we had the privilege of watching
them and their other brother and two sisters grow up into adulthood. Scott was
very impressed with our entrance where the big weeping willow tree in front of our house fell toward the south and I took their picture by it. We had a great visit.

    Such a wonderful visit from these young men at Christmas! How very nostalgic to recall all the years you've known them. The winter scene behind them is lovely too....and Dorsey looks very handsome! You have such a nice life, Andrea. God has certainly blessed you richly.
