week #4

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.

week #3

o the loveliness of a summer evening. the moon was perfect this particular evening. the song really is true when it says that your gonna miss what you have right now. i never thought we'd move. never thought we'd ever have to leave my beautiful south. so i thank God for every day i get to spend here and cherish every moment spent in the warm summer evening air.

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.

Week #2

if your lucky enough to be at the lake, your lucky enough.

Happiness is: soaking up the sun on a warm summer day. Feeling the kiss of heaven and knowing that there is a God and He loves you.

week #1

Nothing beats a beautiful morning drive to work. Because of my job we leave early enough to see the sunrise over a beautiful graveyard every morning. (I have a weird thing for graveyards.) Anyway this morning was especially gorgeous and I had to stop and take a picture of God's beautiful creation. It's when I see things like this that I know beyond a shadow of a doubt everything is gonna be ok. As Anne Shirley would say, "God's in His Heaven and all's right with the world."

I live in a little blue house. I love my house and it has an amazing story. According to the bank, it was impossible that we get the loan for it; but we prayed that if it was God's will, He would make it happen. And BOY! did He make it happen! Our little blue house is cute, but it's hard to bring that cuteness out in pictures...this is one of my attempts. And I don't normally like to edit my pictures too much, but I just liked this picture best this way. I promise I'll do better! :)
