Caleb Loves Diggers

If you've followed this blog long, you must be starting to see that there is an abundance of pictures of a certain two year old, who is not yet tired of the camera and offers sweet smiles it's way.  When he is here, I take hundreds of pictures and his mom is very good about capturing his day to day activities as well.  When he is grown, he will appreciate (most likely) his well documented life as a child. And hopefully his children will enjoy seeing his books as well.

Caleb LOVES he calls his grampa's tractor and these big trucks which move the earth.

I love earth movers as well. There is a certain one I'm following right now.  His name is Paul Ryan and he has the plan to put our nation back on it's feet and get our people working again. It is great to have help when we can't find a job, but it is even better to work, feeling secure there is a pay check coming and knowing we have done something worthwhile.

Practically all of us can do something.  We don't all have to be doctors or lawyers or Indian chiefs. And whatever skills and talents we have are needed somewhere.  We don't all need to go to college.  Many skills are important to our lives that can be learned without sitting in classes for years.  All jobs are important and we should not make people feel unappreciated just because they don't invent the computer, etc.  God blessed  people with many skills and talents. No two are just the same. We don't have to shove anyone into a mold and make him or her something they were not meant to be.

You know, some people may just like to fish. Good for them.  We need fishermen.  All jobs are important ones.

Jesus was asked the question, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"
"The most important one," answered Jesus, " is this: Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.  The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself'. There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12: 29-31
