Timekeeper {Sweet Shot Tuesday}

07 30 10_1893

This was taken on the last full day of visiting with my mom in FL.

I'd go in order telling you about our trip but I'm having Sweet Shot withdrawals and I need my fix.

Right now it trumps the perfectionist in me that's screaming,"For the love of Betsy!!! Show the pics in order!!!"


We drove to this really neat beach called Pass-A-Grille.

Mainly because my mom swore we'd find a whole conch shell there.

We did.

Still in the shell.


Stinking up everything within 10 miles to high heaven.

I couldn't help but do what I do best.

Stalk people with my camera.

Especially this guy.

My teenager.

I'm quite smitten with this kid.

He's sorta neat to be around.

I actually like him.

I know right?!?!

Did I ever tell you that he is a phenomenal drummer?


He even played this past Sunday morning in our main church service for the first time ever.

500+ people.

Apparently they've been waiting for him to sprout facial hair and look old enough to be able to play drums as well as he does.

I'm not kidding.

I was singing so that meant that he was accompanying me.

Which was a very surreal moment as his mom.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't proud.

But mostly I was deeply moved.

I knew that it was a defining moment for him.

Just a glimpse into all that God has planned for him.

It was a defining moment for me as well.

I was reminded that God's plans for him are far greater than any I could have.

That he is not mine at all really.

Only borrowed.

To brighten my life.

Here are 2 videos of him practicing with Youth at age 11! My gosh he was so little!

And here he is this summer with our college interns at VBS at age 14. Unfortunately there is a music stand blocking his head.
