The Strickland Family

Have I mentioned lately how much I love to take pictures? Oh how much fun this large family was, especially Mr. Strickland the head of this wonderful family. Mr. Strickland is a farmer, who absolutely loves what he does. He was like a little kid on Christmas morning during this photo shoot. He kept saying, “I’ve wanted to have my family’s picture taken in this field for years. I’m so excited we were able to do this.” His love for his family, the land, the animals are so precious. I overheard part of a conversation he was having with one of his granddaughters after he let the cows out to the pasture. Before he let them in the field to graze they were mooing so loudly, then it became so quiet when they began to graze. He knelt down to one of his granddaughter and said something like this, “There’s a passage in the Bible that says, ‘He makes me lie down in green pastures’ do you see how happy and content the cows are now, God wants us to like this.” He took such joy from the simple things in life, what a life lesson for all of us.
