Our Race

Our Race

As I look at the picture above I rejoice in the family God has given me. My precious family, the treasure that God has placed in my hands to guide and disciple. Please keep them in your prayers as they grow. Tanya in now 16 and starting to think about college. She has many choices to make in the next year or two. We are hoping to get her started with classes over the internet and at least let her get some basics finished. Christy is 13 and loves life. She has a servants heart and can be counted on to help whether it is with cookies or cleaning. Josh (9) is starting his personal race. He loves action, mechanics, building, and good stories. Pray that we can guide him into meaningful service for the Lord and that we can help all of them grow in the Lord.

Saturdays Trip to the top

This last Saturday, we took a trip to explore a walk that I plan to do with the boys over Christmas.  It was for our own enjoyment as well.  My wife being a good German house wife, packed an overflowing picnic brunch, and off we went.

We climbed to above 6000 feet and travel on the crest of ridge till we came to 'our' tree.  Most trees, if you are in the Johnson house hold take on a life and name of their own.  This one will always be "Nicki and Zoe's" tree.  You see last week we took to girls that were 15 and 17 up to our favorite spot and then my girls took pictures on this tree.  Now the tree has been christened, and you can't change it.

We ate our brunch, played, took pictures, and explored.  On the way home we drove off the side and skidded to the bottom.  My kids are going to find America a little tame, I am afraid.  We exited a very beautiful valley and returned home.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.

These pictures in the album are link to a map to show where we went.  Check out the link to see a topographical map of the area behind our house.

PS.  You can know see our house on Google Earth as well.
