Many of Jim's images are not posed. He claims to not be great a picture taking. In spite of that, I found myself reviling at the emotions he seems to capture effortlessly on so many images, in particular of our grandchildren. I clearly see the innocence so on their faces and their blinding trust. Amazed at what I saw, when the slideshow was complete, I found myself seeing the sentimental side of a man that shows very little emotion, in pictures. The humor, which is an integral part of who Jim is, becomes quite evident also.
remains spiritually strong and outwardly in control. He never wavers in sharing his profound faith in God with me. This has freed me to share mine with him. This serves only to strengthen a marriage and individually increase one's commitment to the covenant to God. When I need strength, Jim builds me up. When I need a shoulder to cry on, he is there. When I need someone to laugh, even if the jokes aren't funny, he finds the strength to laugh, even when God must surely roll his eyes at my humor.
