Just a quick explanation of the picture in my blog header.  It was Alicia’s idea to include a tree when we were looking at themes because of the title “Growing in Grace.”  I happened to look through some of the pics on my computer and in my files I found this picture of me with my son-in-law in Germany, I think it is Cologne.  I was visiting them for a week during the first few months they were married.  Alicia is the photographer.  I think it turned out great!
