Where are we....??!?!?

The average age of the world's greatest civilizations
from the beginning of history, has been about two hundred years.
During those two hundred years, these nations always
progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.
--Commonly attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler--

Happy Father's Day 2009

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it ... Dad

Renison Reunion

For the first time in many years, my Grandpa Jack & his brother Jerry were able to bring together their family for a Renison Reunion.  It was held in Livermore, California and hosted by Jim & Janet (Renison) Brannon.  It was great getting to see everyone and I thought that, although many have been posted on facebook,  I would share a few pictures.  You'll also notice in the pictures, that my Mother's parents, sister and brother-in-law from the "Journey side" were also able to be there with us to visit. Except that it was unusually hot for Livermore.... whewwwww,  everything turned out so nice!

 The Renisons!
