The Joy of Friday

Friday night is for football.
In our small Texas town it seems the entire community stops what they are doing and heads to see the highschool football game.

 All eyes are focused on ones they love.

Each child doing what they do best.

And laughing.

My heart can be heard in the rythm of the drum. But my eye is on the (not so little) red headed drummer boy.

Let me not miss one minute of the joy of youth.
Four short years before these birds take flight. Too soon.

And the drum beats.
I hold this in my heart and give thanks for the joy of young life, happy.

Youth is but a flash of time.....


May our sons flourish in their youth like well-nurtured plants. May our daughters be like graceful pillars, carved to beautify a palace. Psalm 144:12

  1. Lovely post on a wonderful evening! We enjoyed a home school meet tonight followed by a fajita dinner enjoyed by all of the families. Our Senior year, only district, regional and state meets to come and then our Cross Country season is over! My baby's Senior year in High School-where did the time go?
