“Some Christians who do know Christ are in great doubt as to whether they know him. This ought not to be. It is too solemn a matter to be left to chance or conjecture. I believe there are saved ones who do not know of a surety that they are saved. They are raising the question often that never ought to be a question. No man ought to be content to leave that unsettled, for mark thee, my hearer, if thou art not a saved man, thou art a condemned man. If thou art not forgiven, thy sins lie on thee. Thou art now in danger of hell if thou art not now secure of heaven, for there is no place between these two. Thou art either a child of God, or not. Why say ye, ??I hope I am a child of God, yet I do not know; I hope, yet not know that I am forgiven??? In such suspense ye ought not to be. Thou art either one or the other ? either a saint or a sinner, either saved or lost, either walking in the light or walking in the dark.” Charles Spurgeon

Matthew and Claire Dancing

Matthew and Claire got down and funky on the dance floor. For the first time ever, the video camera failed to capture sound; of course, it would have to happen during a wedding. Matthew and Claire were dancing to “She’s a Brick House” by the Commodore’s, so I put the original recording in the backround; what you don’t hear is everyone in the backround cheering them on. We didn’t teach Matthew any of the following moves, they are all inventions of his own. Claire plays the role of back up dancer, running large circles, moving her arms to the music. Later, Matthew paid the price from all his hard dancing with aching feet. Let’s just say that he’s not eager to get dress up in a Tux anytime soon.

Clos La Chance Fountain

My brother’s wedding on Saturday was a very elegant event at the Clos La Chance winery. Matthew and Claire were dressed for the occasion. I didn’t take any photos of the event because there were already two photographers buzzing around; for once I wanted to be in the photos instead of behind a camera. The photographers photos will be ready in 30 days or more, so much patience is needed to endure the waiting period. Meanwhile, here’s some video of Matthew and Claire playing at a fountain. We pulled them away shortly after this video was taken because their outfits were quickly becoming wet.
