Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real

This week I have a picture for each category of Like Mother, Like Daughter's Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real feature.

Pretty~

We visited Girl Out of the House and That Boy for a few days last week. They took us to a beautiful park smack in the middle of their big-ish city. They are pretty too, don't you think? :-)



Happy~

Man of the House performed his first baptism on Easter Sunday. What better way to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord than with a baptism? After all, "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life" (Romans 6:4, KJV). Did you know that Easter is a traditional time for converts to receive baptism? The young man desires to follow Christ and hadn't been baptized before. What a joy it was to hear him affirm his faith in Jesus as his Savior and to renounce the devil and all his works!



Funny~

We saw the oddest ducks at the park! They certainly qualify as funny. They were quite tame and followed us around. It probably helped that we fed them bread crumbs.



Real~

I like geraniums on windowsills, but they don't always look picture-perfect. Notice the unusual shape of this one, how its long stem has doubled back on itself to reach the sunlight. The blossom is on such a long stem that it's having trouble supporting it. I will probably cut it back after the flower wilts.
