Today with LucasAir Force

Sorry for all the pictures, but I wanted to share with you all the great day we had with my husband at a military base in Wisconsin. Buddy and I had a great time. I missed Lucas so much, I didn't want to leave when we had to go. He doesn't get back until Monday, it'll be hard, but it's almost there! Praise the Lord!

Love you guys!

Glasses for BuddyBabies

He has poor eyesight, you see. Trying to focus through these lenses gives him something to do for a while, so we aren't forever chasing him around. LOL. He doesn't really have bad eyes, but it made a great shot anyways.

Hi GuysChat

It's been quite a week for Buddy and I. First off, we miss Daddy terribly. Then, we've both been sick. We are just getting better now. I have a busy season in my photo business coming up here pretty soon. I've got a senior graduation session, engagement shots, a wedding, and the children's diabetes walk here in Eau Claire. After that, I guess I'll be getting lots of calls. I might have to declare a "time off for family time" Weird, considering that my business wasn't even started at the begining of this year.

But God has been faithful, as you can see. He promises to supply all our needs. I might want something, but it is the need He provides for. All in all, my life is briming with His blessings. I can not believe that awesome husband he's provided me with. And to top it off, a beautiful son.

Well, take care guys. Here is a pic of the 4 cousins together.

Always in Him,
Rebecca Renee

My Dearest FamilyMy Jesus

And all other's who may access this Sands Blog. I'd like to share a little of what is going on in my life right now. In the past almost six months since I've had a child, it has been a road that seemed bleak and well, almost a lazy life. Every day, I would sit and think, this is really monotinous. There is no purpose here in staying at home other than taking care of my son and raising him properly. Now, I know you would say that that is most important and that it is entirely not being lazy. Well, I felt otherwise, and kept trying to get motivated into doing something purposeful. I could not feel satisfied at the end of the day, as if I'd accomplished everything on my To Do list. Then I went back to work, and it got a little better, but I still felt the same way.

So, I got back into my study of the Bible. I decided not to push myself to read so much in a day, but decided rather to take it one step at a time...reading just one passage a day, starting in Genesis. Right now, I am reading in Genesis 25 about Jacob and Esau. Just the simplest things are standing out to me. Like Abraham's faith and lack there-of, or Rebekah's complete faith in the God of Abraham, although she did not know what the future held for her in the least. I am comparing my life with the giants of faith before me. Yet they were but mere men and made many mistakes, falling into sin along the way. Just one little act of faithlessness from Abraham and Sarah created a nation that terrorizes the world today...Yet God, forgives and overlooks that...commending them for the faith they did have in Him.

If He was such a Gracious God to them, how much more would He be to me, after He sent His Son to die and rise again to proclaim eternal life to all who believe in Him? I feel so overwhelmed by His grace to me...so undeserving! I was prompted also to read in the book of Proverbs, chapter 31. Verses 10-31 every day as well. Wow! To be a woman of virtue, I'd have to conquer the whole world, sin and holiness, all at once. I realized I can not do it on my own...trying to be the wife I should be for Lucas, or the mother I should be for Jamison. But in all my searching of the scriptures lately, I have found a purpose to look back on at the end of everyday, and feel like I accomplished something of value and importance.


If I could just have one more minute to show my husband I love him; one more second to hold my son and teach him God's ways, even though he doesn't understand yet; one more moment to search God and be diligent, never idle, never wavering, putting complete faith in my Jesus....I can look back on my day and say, "Wow Lord! Look what YOU'VE accomplished!" Then I have had a prosperous day. I make mistakes just as much as the greatest in the Faith, and just as much as the least. I look at my son and see a potential for a huge "Nation" if you will, and I am overwhelmed with the responsibility of raising him to produce good, and not evil. Then I remind myself that God is GOOD. If I place my trust and fears in Him, I am on the right path.


Oh, to hear those words, "Well done, my good and faithful servant! Welcome to the joy of my Lord." It makes me look at people differently, no judgement, just wondering where God has them, or where they are with God. May I never loose sight of that. May God continue to bless my family immeasurably, all the days of their lives.


Love you guys so much....Always.....!

Golden Birthday PartyPicnic

This was at a friends golden birthday party. A handful of kids were there as well. It was so hot that day, but the kids still wanted to play. I think they all felt hot and lazy for a moment and were all facing the same direction. Lucky for me, I got a great candid shot of the three toddlers sharing a moment of solitude. What do you think?

Have you laughed yet today?Chat

Here are a few things to ponder:
If you throw a cat out of the car window, does it become kitty litter?
If you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn?
What do people in China call their good plates?
When dog food is new and improved tasting, who tests it?
Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
Why do you need a driver's liscence to buy liquor when you can't drink and drive?
If the 7-11 is open 24 hrs. a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors?
You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?
If they sqeeze olives to get olive oil, how do they get baby oil?
If you are driving at the speed of light and you turn your headlights on, what happens?
Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of a drive-up ATM?
Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Just thought it'd be fun to share these quotes with y'all - hope you laugh!

He Got His Shots - I Nearly Cried!!!Babies

It was horrible. I hate to see him cry! I was clingy to him for the rest of the day. I felt so bad. But he didn't run a temp, have and allergic reaction, have a seizure or die...obviously I read all the risks and freaked! But God brought him through the ordeal. Jamison is a strong, healthy boy!!! Praise God! He now weighs 12lbs, 9oz. and is 24 inches long.

Juggling JamisonWork

Not atually juglling, but you know what I mean. I don't know if anyone has tried this, but it's a bit of a struggle trying to get a business going and having a child to care for. Not that I don't like having Jamison around, but I want to always put him and any other kids first before work. I guess this has always been a struggle in the human race. So what I need to do is make sure I trust God and give everything to Him first. Just had to sort it out on virtual paper. Thanks for letting me "vent" :). Love you guys. P.S. Should I tkae some photo classes? Lucas and I were discussing it? What do y'all think?

Feeling BetterNews

Thanks for all your prayers...I am feeling a bit better now...still a bit weak at times, but that's my recovery process. Can't wait 'til I'm up to par again. Lucas is doing well. Went back to school today to finish out his final semester of the year. Praise God! It's half over, and he'll have a degree for mechanics. He's looking at a job at a couple dealerships. Maybe, Chevy, Ford or Saturn. Who knows? God'll land him where he belongs. I will be going back to work part time starting in about 6 weeks. Boy, I hate being cooped up at home, but I'll hate even more being away from Jamison even for a few hours!
Jamison is doing great! He has chubby cheeks now as he is eating VERY well. He's such a smart little guy. He is stretching and moving a lot more and is getting a real strong neck! He is even catching on to smiling when someone smiles at him...I think he's gonna be smarter then Adam, Ted and Joe all put together... thanks to all the fish I ate when pregnant. ;)
Well, signing off for now, guess you could tell I was bored huh? Love all you guys! Lots!

The Name of our 1st BabyChat

Wow...it's still exciting as the day we found out we were pregnant! Sometimes it's amazing to me that there is actually a life growing inside of me...and I only have 3 1/2 more months until labor...ouch! But I guess I have a lot of time to prepare fo that...teehee. And I know that God will give me the grace, oh and the strength to break the bones in Lucas' hand. Teehee.

If anyone didn't know, the name of our baby boy is Jamison William Carey. Some people don't like the name Jamie, which is a given to have a nick name when they get older, so we'll probably call him Will for short. I kinda like JW too. But I'm going to call him Jamison...it's a mother's right. :) Hey, doesn't that sound wierd? I'm a mother and Lucas is a father! Right now I'm knitting a blanket for Jamison. I dropped a few stitches in the process but I'm sure he'll forgive me due to the fact that he's too young to care, and that it's my first time at a REAL knitting project.

Well, we love you guys. Keep your eyes glued to the telli from noon 'til 3pm on Sunday. VIKINGS FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON! Go Vikes! Love you, see you all soon, hopefully. Love Bec and Lucas

Me, Lucas and PhotographyBec and Lucas

Hey guys, things are starting to settle in here down in Eau Claire. I am begining to make new friends (not as fast as I'd like to), I have a godly woman mentor and I'm going to this group called Golden Apples where older women teach younger women in the things og God and life's basics. We love our church. It feels like a family now. They took us in under their wing right away. Lucas works at Randy's family restaurant, a christian restaurant with christian music and everything. When we have you over, bring some extra cash to eat out there. Otherwise we'd have to send gift certificates to beg you to come.
Here is one of my latest photography pieces. I'm trying to put it under comments because it won't save here. It is one of my personal favorites; taken with Ted's old digital Sony Camera, which by the way, Lucas and I are dying to have!
Have a great week, we'll write again soon. Love you all!
