Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40
Christmas is right around the corner. The air is brisk, the music is cheerful, the decorations are beautiful. I can't wait to spend time with my family and give them their gifts. But amoung all the bustle and excitement, I want to remember what Christmas is really all about. God sent His Son for ME! And that Son...that Prince...came as the lowliest of the lows so that I could be saved. No gift can compare to that.

We had a really really wonderful time in the mountains yesterday. Just the youth hanging out 'n doin' nothing in particular. When the sun set over the mountains up at "Pretty Place" and the lights came on all over the valley one couldn't help but worship God. It was one of the moments that took my breathe away. love them. :)

Nothing beats a quiet sunday afternoon with some of your favorite people in the world taking pictures and laughing and hanging out in your favorite small town in the world.
Yesterday afternoon, Carmen, Carrie, my hubby Dennis and I set out on a photography adventure. Dennis and I wanted pictures for Christmas cards and to fill some frames while Carmen and Carrie decided to have to pictures taken so they can hand out Christmas cards to their cleaning ladies. Carmen took the pictures of Dennis and I first, then we let him free to go home and I took some pictures of Carmen and Carrie. This is pretty much all I've seen yet, and I'm terribly excited to see how the rest turned out!

For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us.

One thing that I absolutely love about the South is all the old buildings. The South is known for not being able to let go of the past, and I think that maybe the old buildings and chimney's are a sign of that too. And the history lover inside of me can't help but wonder what that old house saw...what lives touched it?

This picture shows how the bikers felt after the end of the first day. It was hard! And by the end of the second day, they felt even worse. But they say it was totally worth it!

This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom for others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.
- Abraham Lincoln
I have this love affair with this shade of green right now. I seem drawn to it. It makes me happy...and that is why I'm posting this picture.

Once again our lovely lake shows off it's God-given beauty. :) Seriously it was gorgeous this particular morning! The water had small ripples all over the top that let the sun bounce off of them, making them look like diamonds! I only pray that God can reflect off of me like that. It was absolutely beautiful.
P.S. Thanks again to my little sister, Carrie, who was darling enough to be my model again. Your the best, deary!
It was so beautiful out this morning when I went on my run (I feel so important saying that! :p). The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing and it wasn't even 70* out yet! It was one of those mornings that I just wanted to break out singing "it's a beautiful day, and I thank God for the weather!" And then, I caught a glimpse of the sunlight dancing through the big tree in our yard; and you know those moments, like when you see a rainbow and you know deep in your heart that that was a hug from God...seeing that sunlight was one of those moments for me. And even though everything isn't "perfect," I know God will take care of me and everything will be good...and that's all I need.

My grandmother had a thing for antique china. She passed on most of her collection to my sister and I. This teacup is one of my favorite pieces from her. Very cheerful and delicate and I think of her every time I see it. I love things like that that bring back good memories. Those are the things worth collecting.
