deep creek lake

we just got back from vacation (again), this time with a bunch of members of my side of the family, to deep creek lake, maryland.  we had a great time of enjoying the lake (swimming, kayaking, fishing, etc.) as well as some traditionally vacation-y activities like building puzzles, getting ice cream, playing miniature golf, going on walks, etc.  deep creek lake is a beautiful area, and we had an amazing home for the week, at the top of a mountain looking down on the lake.  it was gorgeous, as was the weather all week. 

while vacation with three little kids isn't exactly restful, we did have lots of fun, relaxed, and mostly avoided illness, which was a huge success compared to our last vacation.  i thought i'd share a few pictures below of some of the action, including visiting a waterfall, fishing, going to an amazing candy store (look at the boys' faces in the background - pure joy!), shannon after climbing a rock wall, and at the end, a picture of the whole gang who went, including all the kiddos.  it was a great time, and now we are close to school starting again, and getting ready for that. 

ps.  this is my 1,500th post here at agent orange records.  thanks for reading.

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
